Super Slow-Motion Fireworks Explosions: The Best Way to Love America (Updated)

In the timeless battle between fireworks and food, there's only ever been one clear winner: those of us who get to watch them meet at a gloriously slowed down 2,000 frames per second. Jell-O! Mayo! Egg! All exploded for our pleasure, compliments of PopSci.

The full video below, shot with the same type of Phantom camera that's captured so many of our other slow motion favorites recently, gives you as close a view as you could hope for without turning your fingers into nubs. And isn't that what freedom's all about?

Update:PopSci graciously added unedited clips of some of their favorite explosions above. Worth. It. [PopSci]
