How to Make a Bazooka for Fireworks

Uh, kids, don't try this at home. Adults neither. Especially if you play Call of Duty.

Colin Furze, the mad genius living the dreams of my 15-year-old self (and my current self, if we're being honest here), has put his mind and British accent to a new project: a bazooka that shoots fireworks. The man has launched hundreds of fireworks in the air at once, and once lit the sky with a firework-powered windmill to celebrate a YouTube subscriber benchmark. His latest masterpiece zeroes in on style, rather than scale, bringing Call of Duty and Halo fantasies to life with some old metal tubes, light explosives, and a blowtorch. This is the definition of DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME stuff, but watching Furze make an awesome-looking projectile firework launcher from scratch is proof that dreams do come true, if you build them.


Watch the master at work in the video below, and tune in next week to watch the thing in action.
