Dubai had the world's largest fireworks show and it was amazing

To celebrate the New Year, Dubai decided to break the Guinness World Record for world's largest fireworks show. Because of course the world's largest fireworks show would be in Dubai. They put the best show on every year. Might as well put on the biggest too. Dubai exploded over 500,000 fireworks in just 6 minutes centered mostly around the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest structure, for a spectacle that even surpasses Dubai's ridiculous standards. It was amazing.


Can you imagine? Almost 100,000 fireworks were going off every single minute! If you were there, your ears would probably go numb and your eyes might even suffer from temporary blindness but it would so worth it. Excess is what Dubai does and it does it so fantastically well. Watch the whole show below. Not over the top at all!

Sorry but you can't just strap a bunch of fireworks to the world's tallest building, ask Bollywood if they have any CDs left over, then call it a day. Looks cool for the first few minutes, but then it's just the same thing over and over...quite impressive looking at it on that huge structure but the fireworks are drab.

Maybe it's just a culture thing, I found the London one to be much more of a spectacle, fireworks being in sync and stuff, skip to 10:20 and it gets insane.
