How to Turn Balloons Into Simple Fireworks That Only Go Boom

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Looking for a fast way to get the fuzz turning up at your doorstep? 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 display, 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 terrorising anyone nearby when one of these things goes off. 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.
