Apparently they set off fireworks everywhere in Lima, Peru when the New Year hits. And Jeff Cremer was there with his drone to capture the craziness. Wow. (via colossal)

If watching this video makes you feel like Beavis and Butthead, you are not alone.

This may be the funniest YouTube video of all time. Keywords: fireworks, no pants, NSFW, and “Rectum? It nearly killed ‘em!”

Update: Of course YouTube pulled the video, but here’s an alternate link. (thx, ryan)

Fire at a fireworks factory = lots of

posted by Jason Kottke   Jan 24, 2006

Fire at a fireworks factory = lots of explosions. I went to a fireworks display when I was a kid and about 5 minutes in, the structure they were launching them out of caught on fire and the rest of the display went off in the space of 2-3 minutes. Best fireworks I’ve ever seen…

Update: Wikipedia has more on this explosion, which occurred in The Netherlands in 2000. (thx to the dozens who sent this in)
