"Night becomes day," says YouTube user  who uploaded the best yet documentation of San Diego's mega fireworks explosion on the Fourth of July.

Shot on a Canon 60D DSLR, according to the video description, the dramatic imagary elicited a number of colorful reactions from users, from "ATTTTOOOMMIICCC HOLOOOCAUUSSSTTTT!," to "How is this a failure? It was amazing...," to "Come on ! There are tens of thousands of fireworks all around the planet. Which one will you REALLY remember by the end of the year," to "That wasn't fireworks.. basically a bomb."

One thing commenters did agree on, however, was that the video is very, very, very, loud ("Let's say a prayer for all the headphone users," ie).

For the love of hearing, please take off your headphones before watching this.
