Snap Crackle And Pop: Video Of A Truckful Of Aerosol Cans Exploding On Highway

November 3, 2017


This is a video of a tractor trailer full of aerosol cans exploding on the M1 motorway between junctions 20 and 21 in Leicestershire, England. It's believed the cans were ignited as a result of the heat generated by friction after the driver slammed on his brakes following a blown tire. Obviously, I only wish I could have been there-- "So you smell it." You really get me, you know that? I expect the best Christmas present from you this year.

Keep going for the vertical video.

Thanks to Christopher C, who agrees that is not how you pop popcorn.

  • That's Leicestershire for you.

    I swear I could see the red metal pop and bend and then go back when cans were hitting the back

    In Russia they do it with propane tanks:

    Kind of reminds me of waiting for the last few kernels to pop with microwave popcorn.

    I have a firepit and a bunch of half-empty spray paint cans. I know what I'm doing this weekend.

    My friend and I used to have a fire a few nights a week and a few times he got bored and threw things like cans of creamed corn, spray paint, etc in the fire pit.

    It's pretty impressive how much of a thud that canned good make when they pop.

    Looks like the soup kitchen will have to wait this Thanksgiving, I got 'splosions to make.
