It's the Fourth of July, and fireworks are seemingly a no-brainer. They're as part of the tradition as burgers, beer, and the American flag bikinis everyone will inevitably wearing at your barbeque. Plus, could they actually be that difficult to set off?
Yes. Yes, they can. We've compiled a list of eight epic firework fail videos that prove if you're not a seasoned professional, you probably shouldn't be messing with the sparklers. So before you go out and buy that cheap set of fireworks or, goddess forbid, you try to build your own, let this list change your mind. (Disclaimer: We didn't feature anything where anyone gets seriously hurt, because we're not trying to ruin your day.)
