I know that China invented fireworks thousands of years ago. And since Japan is right next to China they would have been using them for a lot longer than America too. But they're totally kicking our butts in how awesome their fireworks are! America we need to step up our fireworks game ASAP!

OK so the Japanese are world leaders in a lot of technological areas, like math and science and stuff. But fireworks? I always thought America would put so much effort into being the best at celebrating and blowing stuff up that we would be tops in fireworks. But after watching this video, we have a lot of work to do.

This was only a 3 minute show, but what the Japanese are doing with both the look of the fireworks, and the design of the shows in general, is absolutely blowing America away right now. So for all the fireworks companies that help us celebrate our independence, and our New Year, and any other reason we use for fireworks, the gauntlet has been thrown down.
