Dubai set the world record for the largest fireworks show in history on January 1, 2014. We saw a sample—taken at the Burj Khalifa—but that was nothing compared to this HD video, which shows the full scope of this titanic explosion chain from the air and different locations. The fireworks took over the entire country.

Our friend Gerald Donovan filmed them in 4K resolution, so make sure to crank up your YouTube settings. The extension and duration of the fireworks is simply amazing.
