Maybe right now, you’ve found yourself unable to muster the energy to go fight some bored teenagers for the last of the good fireworks. Perhaps you live somewhere with strict laws and the pathetic display going on in the driveway isn’t enough to lift you from your burger coma. And driving to find the elusive “good spot” to watch the big, professional show from sounds like a lot of work. 

None of these things have to damper your patriotism, however, because here we have fireworks filmed by a drone. 

No amount of homemade bottle rockets is going to look better than that. OK so maybe it’s not the first time someone’s done this, but damnit, it’s beautiful.
