Circle’s Redneck Roundup: Firework Fails

With the 4th of July fast approaching, it’s safe to assume that a lot of folks have already stocked up on fireworks. Although, let’s be honest, there are a few people out there who probably shouldn’t be trusted with a sparkler, let alone buying fireworks.

For this week’s ‘Redneck Roundup,’ Circle has compiled some of the most jaw-dropping firework fails that will leave you with only one question: “WHY?!”

Check ’em out below!

In the Doghouse

“The dog did it” excuse can actually be used for this one.

A classic family gathering, complete with fireworks for some fun, was the perfect way to spend their day or so they thought. Just as one firework was about to light up the sky, guess what? The family dog saw it as a chew toy and went for it!

You can imagine the chaos as the firework went wild, heading straight for the family members. Don’t worry, everyone seemed to come out unscathed, including the fearless dog. Maybe we should consider a “no dogs allowed” rule for the next fireworks show?

The Upside Down

In a hilarious firework mishap, one of the buddies took charge of launching the fireworks. They diligently set them up for takeoff, but here’s the twist—they accidentally placed them upside down!

As a result, the fireworks unexpectedly decided to shoot off horizontally, creating a comical scene that had the whole group screaming and scrambling away.

Note to self: next time read the label

Apartment Buildings and Fireworks Don’t Mix

@axhley.danielle What it’s like living in a high rise in DTLA during 4th of July 🥴🥴🥴 #fireworkfail #dtlafireworks #fireworksdtla #fireworkexplosion ♬ original sound – ashley

A firework show went wrong in Downtown LA when one apartment owner caught a destructive scene on camera. A firework went rogue, piercing through a window of an apartment building. Thankfully, no one resided in that particular unit, but I think we can all agree (unless you’ve been living under a rock) that shooting fireworks near skyscrapers isn’t the brightest idea. Lesson learned, folks!

All For One or One For All

@shadowed16 The show ended early and some fires started 😵‍💫🫣 #fireworks #fire #pretty #oops #end #burn #4thofjuly #4th #crazy #viral ♬ original sound – 🌸Shauna🌸

Alright, brace yourselves for the wildest (and quickest) fireworks fiasco ever witnessed! So, picture this: during a firework show in Milwaukee, a glorious malfunction (we’re assuming a human error) occurred, resulting in every single firework launching into the sky at the same time! Talk about an explosive evening.
