Watch the insides of a firework explode in super slo-mo

Ever wonder what the inside of a giant firework looks like as it explodes? This super-slo mo footage shows what happens when a shell that's been cut in half gets lit.

They wisely set up some sturdy transparent shielding to get the shot.

My good friend Ben Cusick from the YouTube channel NightHawkInLight is an expert in fireworks, so when I went to visit him a few months ago he brought up this idea of filming fireworks against a pane of glass so that we could see the igniting firework go off from the inside out! Looks pretty damn mesmerizing. :)

Bonus video: Firenado!
