Sometimes one box of fireworks isn’t enough. That’s why Colin Furze, a YouTube celebrity and quirky inventor — err, mad scientist — decided to wire 58 boxes together into a giant firework Deathstar in his latest video.
With the gripping title, “Firework Fail - Idiots light mortar shell in garag,” what can possibly go wrong? The “e” is missing, but that’s probably because whoever filmed this posted it online as quickly as possible. Probably thinking: “Oh my god, the world has to witness this! There’s no time for spell check!” Or, “Shit the cops are coming so I might as well get this out to as many people as possible before they haul us in.”
There’s an interesting story centered around the 4th of July and our nation’s veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan — that Americans celebrating Independence Day should be wary of any neighbors who are combat veterans, less their fireworks trigger that veteran’s post-traumatic stress.
