Balloons Explode at Wedding


There are lots of ways weddings can go wrong, and most couples expect the unexpected -- but we're pretty sure no bride in history has ever worried about exploding balloons.

While the beautiful bride and groom stood outside with their wedding party in Manado, Indonesia, some well-meaning people (according to YouTube, one guy was their photographer) tried to separate a bundle of balloons.

No big deal, right? How helpful, you say. Well, we should probably mention that their tool of choice was a lighter. Did these people not pay attention in science class?!

Since the balloons were over filled with hydrogen, the flame quickly made the balloons explode, sending gold-clad bridesmaids scrambling for cover.

A commenter noted that the words we're hearing over and over roughly translate to "gosh!," but we wouldn't blame these folks if there was a lot of "$%@!%^^!#&^*!!!" and a few "HOLY @$^!?!@&*" thrown in there.

Though everyone was incredibly shaken up, nobody was hurt in the extremely dangerous blast. We're pretty sure the bride wishes she had said 'I do' to some different balloon handlers, though perhaps this is a sign that their union is a lucky one. Either way, here's hoping those men learned their lesson.

Uploaded in September, the video is just now going viral.

I am thankful for so many things... family, good health, career... the obvious things... but on this day I am thankful to be alive. I am thankful to love and be loved and to be open to embrace folks that are different than me and respect their uniqueness and not see them as a threat to my existence. So my prayer on this Thanksgiving... to embrace the FACT that we ALL matter. We ALL have value. We ALL deserve to love and be loved... as we are all worthy. Rp @dwyanewade
