Happy New Year! Speaking of explosions… here’s what happens when you put 10,000 sparklers in a bucket and light them simultaneously.
Likably opening with the warning: “All that is shown in this video is very dangerous, it is forbidden to repeat, but you can enjoy it,” the voiceover for the uncle and nephew team notes that the sparkly payload weighs almost 50kg and would take more than 2 days to burn through if each sparkler was lit one by one. Having assembled the ‘warhead’, and a 30ft selfie-stick (topped by a GoPro Hero3), it’s lights, camera, action… followed by dealing with the 2m radius of burning grass.
If you like this, you might also like an artificial fire tornado caught in bullet-time – aka a vertical pillar of flame extending from a bucket.
