San Diego fireworks malfunction, explode all at once (Video)

28 10

San Diego’s ‘Big Bay Boom’ fireworks show was supposed to last 15 minutes, but due to bad software exploded in less than 30 seconds. We’ve all had this problem.

  • Matt

    That was awesome.

  • Kowabunga

    This post was only for the innuendo I am guessing. It was pretty anticlimactic.

      Actually, it was pretty much only climactic.

  • SlimtwigMJ

    Would have rather watched that than the planned show.

  • dragon2777

    the innuendo was better than the actual post but still pretty funny that happened hopefully no one got hurt

    60% of the time, it works every time.

    San Diego… The premature ejaculator of fireworks displays.

  • Doh!


  • Texas Longshanks

    Pretty sweet. Don't lie, everyone here has always wondered what it would look like if all the fireworks went off at once.

  • 4everDistracted

    I used to work for Pyrotechnico, fireworks company out of New Orleans, and when shows didn''t go off correctly you were in deep shit. I cannot imagine the hell the blaster is taking on this one. Maybe he hated his job and that was his two week notice.

      new castle, pa maybe? at least that's where the pyrotechnico i freelance with is based out of…and i'm in FL…

      • JayMackB

        We are all glad you guys weighed in with your cool pyro old job knowledge base. I had a cat once so I am sure to comment every cat Saturday and fill people in about the ins and outs of cat ownership

        • Buzzin_Neon

          sure thing man…no problem…and i look forward to your expertise on cats since i don't own any…

          • 4everDistracted

            Yes I too look forward to JayMack8's cat expertise, as for Pyrotechnico, they have bases all over the US (NJ, NH, LA, TX, PA are a few I know of).

            • Buzzin_Neon

              yeah, there's a warehouse in st pete, fl too…that's where all of our product comes from…and they get their product from PA…or so i'm told…

    Rick Pitino approves of this fireworks display.

  • suck me dry

    all the way off is how far i would like you to suck me

    • no thanks

      any chance you could come up with some new work?….no pressure.. just sucking you off doesn't seem to appeal to anyone here from what I can tell.

  • Dylan

    It was the electronics, not the software. Don't blame the programmers.

  • nwf

    Happens to me all the time.

  • Paula_

    Whaaaaat, I just optimized the software. 15 minutes is too damn long!

    In 5 years, I bet people will still remember the night San Diego blew up the whole sky. But how many people will remember the usual 18 mins firework show that happened in every other city?

  • TheSimonizer

    Chive, why do you rip videos and upload them to your own player? Because of that, you are always 2-5 days late on viral videos… and I see no real legit benefice to that..

    • Unonumus

      Because it makes the website look like it wasn't thrown together by some kid in his moms musty ass basement.

    • Ronald

      Don't tell them how to do their job. They don't tell you how to make a Big Mac.

      • TheSimonizer

        I'm not. I'm asking a question. I'm just wondering what are benifice. Why not just embed the video?

        • TheSemenizer

          Because fuck you, that's why.

  • NelPit

    Afterwards, it laid there smoking, muttering "Gee, this has never happened to me before…"

    My gf refers to sex with me as the bay fireworks, 15 minutes promised, 15 seconds in reality

  • Verbal_Kint

    reminds me of the first time I had sex. For 15 seconds, it was awesome….

    • Gusto

      Man, the first time I doubt I even lasted 15 seconds. But was the best feeling in my life.

  • Pwnapotamus

    Not sure if fireworks going off, or oil rigs exploding.

  • Jeff Ingram

    Best fireworks ever!
