How To Turn Balloons Into Simple Fireworks That Only Go Boom

Looking for a faster way to call the cops to your neighborhood than 9-1-1? Just follow Grant Thompson, AKA the King of Random’s latest video that has him turning regular balloons into high-flying explosives that sound like a fireworks show but without all the eye candy.

Instead of filling the balloons with helium, you’ll need to get yourself a tank of HHO which is a gaseous mixture of hydrogen and oxygen also known as oxyhydrogen. It was originally used for welding before it was replaced by oxyacetylene, and now it’s mostly good for terrorizing your neighborhood. Since oxyhydrogen is lighter than air the balloon will float, and with a short fuse attached you can ensure your home-made fireworks only explode above the tree line so that the bang travels for miles.
