(MIDLAND, Texas) — If you don’t have the patience to sit through a full fireworks show, here’s a video for you.

The Midland, Texas, Police Department recently set off an entire haul of fireworks at virtually the same time.

“MPD’s bomb squad recently assisted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives with the disposal of approximately 20,000 pounds of seized fireworks over the course of three and a half days,” the Midland Police Department wrote in a description of the video posted earlier this week on Facebook.

“This was done during the day because it was not meant to be a fireworks show,” the Midland Police Department added. “These fireworks could not be donated since their destruction was court-ordered.”
