The Big Bay Boom Firework Show in San Diego for 2012 was a "Big Bay Boom Boom BOOM OMG what went wrong, grab the kids, run RUN". It seems that some random technical problem caused this 15 minute show to happen in 15 seconds!

ALL of the fireworks went off within 30 seconds due to a technical problem ruining the original Big Bay Boom which was set to last about 15 minutes. Approximately 5 minutes before the show was to start, a signal was sent to the barges that would set the timing for the rest of the show after the introduction. All these signals tested properly according to Garden State Fireworks, which will be working to determine what the technical problem was caused the entire show to be launched in about 15 seconds.

Kinda like my love life...supposed to last for hours but over in a few seconds at times. Thank goodness no one was hurt.
