Do not try this at home. Do not try this at home. Definitely do not try this at home.

At the start of 2015, using GoPro cameras, duct tape, and more Roman candles than a sleepaway camp on Independence Day, German breakdancers LIL AMOK and Bboy Snoop rang the New Year in with explosive panache. On the backstreets of Frankfurt, the duo strapped fireworks to their feet and set off a breakdancing spectacle now known as FIREWORK POWERMOVES 2015. Braving the wind, snow, and literally hundreds of fiery, chemical-colored projectiles, the results are a high-flying testament to the kind of behavior you should definitely not try at home or without the supervision of trained professionals (or ever). 

Check out FIREWORK POWERMOVES 2015 below, as well as behind-the-scenes photos from NYP Photography.
