San Diego's Fourth of July fireworks fail (video)

A huge fireworks show in San Diego didn't go off as planned last night. Minutes before it was scheduled to start, all the fireworks went off at the same time. The whole thing lasted about 30 seconds, but it was supposed to go on for 18 minutes. The show's producer is apologizing to the hundreds of thousands of spectators for what happened, and says everything was working fine before it all went wrong. The failure is being mocked all around the Internet.
