    On July 4th, my brother-in-law and I bought about 12,000 black cats to set off. 8,000 of them were in one roll. We filmed them going off and I decided to put it to some music and upload it! Enjoy!

    You need the latest Quicktime to check it out. Oh, I'm the guy in the grey shirt.

    Where were your mothers? And the mothers of the small children jumping over the firing line?! :eek:

    I'm still watching it...

    ok they stopped halfway?!

    Wonder what count per second is/was?




    la te daa...

    Music timing is great! It looks/sounds like a small scale invasion.




    dang...still going on!


    ROFLMAO!!! I was just about to post: "now who has a rake?" when someone brought you a couple! :D

    That was great. I'm jealous!

    :)

    There are 3 ways you can translate "8,000 black cats." Ahem...

    The children running around were nephews... that father of one of them was the other adult running around the fireworks.

    Why do people always have to stand in front of the camera? Great, especially the end.

    Grown men? ...I don't think so. You were running around more than the little kids. :p

    It does look like fun though. I wish firecrackers were legal here in California. :(

    About 5 years ago, my uncle and I bought a 100,000 string yes 100k wheel of firecrackers. He has the tape and I will try and get it, but it was similar to yours only a tad bit more red paper downfall and loudnees. But still very interesting to ee some of yours:) You should have left it in the wheel though :( you get a WAY bigger explosion. And it lasts about 8 seconds as well.
