25 Minute Firework Display Gone In 50 Seconds
November 7, 2011 by staff
25 Minute Firework Display Gone In 50 Seconds, Friday’s Oban Community Fireworks Display saw dozens of bangers explode in one go. The fireworks had been intended to launch in synch with music that started playing simultaneously.
Councillor Roddy McCuish, one of the organisers of the display, apologised to the gathered crowd, and now Pyro 1 – the company behind the show – is planning a free replacement on November 27.
‘I went to the toilet and missed them,’ posted YouTube user post2gary below footage of Friday’s fireworks flop.
‘I bet everyone was like “wow, if that’s just the start, the grand finale is really gonna kick ass!”‘ quipped another.
‘If Carlsberg did fireworks displays… they have to get the rights to this video,’ said a fellow viewer, while another posted: ‘”So I press this button, yeah?” “Yeah tha- WAIT! NOOOOOO!”‘
Councillor McCuish told the BBC of the fiasco: ‘It was like daylight. It was absolutely fantastic. When I did announce “that was it”, people thought I was joking.
‘The operative explained to me there had been a terrible malfunction.The public in Oban have been absolutely fantastic. I was expecting a carry-on but they were fine when I announced that unfortunately “that was it, put the lights back on”.
