    Link: Scotland Fireworks Fiasco - Technical fault causes a 20 minute firework display to last less than 1. Great if you don`t have lots of time to spare.

    I`d rather have them like that, than the usual drawn out nature of them.

    Man that would have been a terrible 20 minutes, it`s so much better watching fireworks like this.

    Oban is cool. And this way you get a full display without wasting pub time.

    Haha, this is around 30 minutes up the road from me. The guy letting them off pushed the wrong button, and discharged them all, instead of pushing the one to start the show off!

    The original twenty minutes would really suck if it actually went off the way it was supposed to.

    You guys would SERIOUSLY stretch that out to 20 minutes? Lame. Come to this country, let us show you some fireworks.

    That`s pretty much the finale to any firework show around here. Come see the Detroit fireworks.. it`s like that for the entire show.

    @Duffytoler, This was in a small town in Scotland, population ~8,000. It was never going to be a major display.

    Having your fireworks go off in one minute when it was supposed to last twenty minutes?

    I have that problem too.

    Yet that`s the one they`ll all remember 20 years from now (at least the ones who are still alive then).

    The last fireworks I watched would have been better if they did it more like this. Instead they shot 3 fire works every 5 min. It lasted 1hr 20min, way to long.
