A fireworks list to celebrate the day three days after Canada Day.
The 4th of July is many things to Americans. It’s a day of family, hot dogs, and a good ol’ celebration of freedom. And really, what screams freedom better than making the sky explode?
We here at Gemr love our fireworks, but the question is, are fireworks collectible enough for us to talk about? Well, we wouldn’t recommend it, but since it’s technically possible, we say it counts. And an even better question is, what kind of firework is best? Well folks, you know what you clicked on, and we know why we’re writing this, so let’s jump right in to the true list of best fireworks ever.
10: Every Firework.
Let’s face it, there’s no such thing as a bad firework. Okay, maybe fireworks that wake you up at 2:00 AM are bad fireworks, all things considered. But, you know, that’s the exception and not the norm.
Normally we’d put this at number 1 as a crowd pleasing, all inclusive finish, but that would technically mean that every entry before it is the worst firework ever. We pledged to avoid inadvertently ruining fireworks by making this mistake.
9: The Willow
The willow is, for all intents and purposes, a tree created by an explosion.
The next time someone tells you nature can’t be metal, use willow fireworks to challenge their beliefs.
8: The Crosette
Also known as the crackle fireworks. Actually, does anyone call them crackle fireworks?
It wasn’t until writing this that we found people have a lot of different names for fireworks. It looks like we’re just a hashtag away from starting an educational fireworks awareness week.
7: The Happy Face
If you looked up at the night sky and saw a cartoony looking happy face looking down at you, you’d probably think you were in some horrific alternate reality.
However, the happy face firework is somehow perfectly okay and gets tons of cheers every year.
6: The Poké Ball
We’re actually not kidding about this one. Japan has been launching Poké Ball shaped fireworks since 2011.
This is definitely going on our upcoming list of the top 10 Japan only fireworks that should come west.
5: Firework by Katy Perry
There is, of course, no doubt that Katy Perry’s classic song Firework belongs on this list. But the question is, who actually is the firework?
She clear says you are the firework in the song, but in the video, it seems like she’s the firework. This is really making us all feel like plastic bags.
4: Danmaku Unlimited 3
Danmaku Unlimited 3 is technically a popular example of the “bullet hell” subgenre of space shooter video games. But honestly, just look at that screenshot.
These games might as well be called firework video games.
Fantavision is a firework video game released as a launch title for the Playstation 2.
Okay, we can see how our suggestion about Danmaku Unlimited 3 could get confusing.
2: Guy Fieri
You can’t tell us this guy isn’t the human equivalent of a firework.
1: Every Firework
We lied about number 10 and we don’t know what any of this means anymore.
