I repeated the explosion scene like 20 times. I know its messed up but that was damn cool! Reminds me of the sewer explosion scene from that 90's giant alligator movie.

Strange explosion. It looks like it's taking of slow and then it explodes. It wasn't caused by the firecracker explosion itself right? It was caused by the fuse of the firecracker i guess.

I wonder if he'll do that again, probably use a longer fuse next time.

Can you imagine what could have happened if the child in the tan coat had remained standing on the cover? :(
