This risky fireworks battle is straight out of a Harry Potter scene


Don’t try this at home. Seriously.

This intense battle between two guys in China shooting fireworks at each other is going viral.

The official People’s Daily outlet tweeted the dangerous “duel” between the two men, where they blasted fireworks on sticks at each other. Needless to say, we don’t recommend doing this. Ever.

The scene looks a lot like the showdown between Harry Potter and Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2.

The event took place over Chinese New Year, which is usually celebrated with fireworks in China.

During this fireworks festival, thousands of bottle rockets fly out into the crowd


For a festival where racks of fireworks explode and fly straight into the crowd, it’s little wonder that Taiwan’s annual Yanshui Festival has been described as akin to being caught in “artillery fire.” 

A siren sounds when the fireworks are lit, and participants clad in thick jackets and pants, scarves, helmets and ear plugs, experience thousands of bottle rockets being set off.

When ignited, the racks of gunpowder filled bottles shoot out in every direction — some into the sky, and some into the crowd.
