Video of the Day: Fireworks Fails

In honor of the United States' glorious heritage, which involves doing Darwin-Award-worthy stuff every 4th of July, we bring you some fireworks stunts you shouldn't try at home.
Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

Kids, don't be Captain Awesome.

Today's Independence Day video comes directly to you from the Don't Try This At Home department. It's my little 4th of July gift to you all.

Some famous last words: "Grandpa, we're makin' it happen out here!"

That guy after the Roman candle war looks like he's all: "Flawless victory!" Smug little bastard. We'll see you all some day featured in the annual Darwin Awards, I'm sure.

Got a video you'd love to see featured as our Video of the Day? Drop me a link at shayalyn[AT] You can also tweet me @ShayalynTTH on Twitter.
