The US Government's Latest Fireworks Safety Video Is Horrifying As Hell

Video: Every year around July 4 (surprise, surprise) the US Consumer Product Safety Commission puts on a graphic demonstration of why you should be really careful when setting off fireworks. The video of the demo arrived late this year, but if you're a fan of horror movies, it was still totally worth the wait.

They're just simulations, but watching these mannequins lose limbs, eyes and their entire heads is beyond unsettling. By the end of this video you won't even want to light a candle ever again.
