Massive controlled detonations are awesome to watch. They’re much cooler to watch in slow motion. Merry early Christmas, here you go.

While conducting mine clearing operations, Saudi EOD technicians gather up roughly 3,000 pounds of Houthi laid landmines. After getting them all into one location, they conduct a massive controlled detonation. The resulting shock-wave from the explosion is stunning, and worthy of the title “Shock-wave Porn.”

This is extremely satisfying to watch. Ready, set, kaboom.
