Here's a couple of videos of the firework display at San Diego, that went (to put it mildly) slightly wrong.
All of the fireworks were accidentally set off at the same time, resulting in an outrageously spectacular display, but sadly only lasting for 30 seconds or so.
Myself, l would rather see a display like this. It's certainly unforgettable, and the unplanned part would have made it even more memorable. Much better than an everyday run of the mill display.
It's like a firework version of the old 'live fast - die young' motto, or 'burn like a super nova - and then fade away'.
I may have made the last one up.
