If you want a colourful explosion, you can get your hands on some fancy, professional fireworks, sure. Or, you can take the easy way out and blow up a couple of buckets of paint. You'll be like a Jackson Pollock with a case of M-80s. The Slow Mo Guys went with that second option, and the results are modern art you can get behind.
While these guys haven't been averse to a little danger in the past, they could definitely brush up a little on their fireworks technique before someone gets killed, albeit in slow motion. Come on, no one wants to fess up to having gotten injured in a "painting accident". [The Slow Mo Guys]
