Do you love watching fireworks? What about watching fireworks that blow the hell out of poor, unsuspecting mannequins? Well, have we got a treat for you.

The United States’ Consumer Product Safety Commission recently conducted their annual fireworks safety demonstration on the National Mall in Washington, D.C — and just like past safety demonstrations, it’s more hilarious than frightening. OK, it’s a little bit frightening. We’ve cut the original video down to just the most explosive parts. So yeah, be careful out there. Don’t try this at home, kids.
