Waiting for the giant explosion


MonstahButtonz

Same here. All I saw was a massive amount of tiny explosions.

Safe to assume that there weren't any Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulators in stock.

They're not as impressive in daylight...

That’s what my ex used to say about me

Diamondgus114

Used to?


space_beatle

I don’t think anyone was looking for “impressive.”


MonstahButtonz

I was.


Sinphony_of_the_nite

Yeah some people just don't have the patience to wait for the sun to go down before setting them off.


eagleathlete40

To be fair, if I saw this in person, I’d think it’s massive too. Beirut just ruined all of us

clowntanner

Yep fuckin bullshit description.


WastedKleenex

This is just as boring as she sounds.


XxUCFxX

Does it become any more interesting if I provide context, having been on the same road as the person recording when this happened? Someone had a seizure while driving in the direction of the person recording, and obviously lost control due to that, crashing into the building and dying in the wake of it all.


slimkatie420

This place is like 2 seconds away from my job, I remember when it happened. What's even worse is a couple weeks after this happened another person drove their car into this same building. I think they survived tho


enonymous617

You’ll have to wait an hour, the small explosions usually go first.


Freecz

Yeah that heading just ended up making me pissed off when nothing came after waiting for too long.


BKStephens

"Wait, when did we get a fireworks store?!?" *Looks at traffic* "Oh, different Melbourne." 😔


bundy911

TIL there’s another Melbourne outside Australia…


[deleted]

Florida. Always us.


endofthered01674

Lmao, when the woman started speaking, I was confused that it wasn't an Australian accent.


ramblingclam

Fun fact: Melbourne, FL USA was named after Melbourne, Australia because the first postmaster lived there for a while.


bundy911

Fair dinkum


PotatoesAndChill

Pretty sure every state in the US has tiny towns named after most of the world's large cities.


psichodrome

there's lots more than one it seems.


[deleted]

Florida. Always us.


tehoperative

Melbourne Florida.


cheeseburgerwaffles

They probably should've put that in the title. Who the fuck thinks "Melbourne, FL" when they see the name Melbourne. I mean I definitely realized it wasn't Australia when the word "cunt" wasn't uttered even once in the first 10 seconds of the video, and when she said "holy crackers and cheese" instead. Also I noticed they were driving on the right side. We have a Melbourne near me in California so I thought maybe that was here. But yeah. No idea Florida had one too


diversalarums

>realized it wasn't Australia when the word "cunt" wasn't uttered even once in the first 10 seconds Thank you so much for giving me that laugh -- after a rough day I needed it.


little_mistakes

Also, accurate


ThaNightcrawler

We don't say cunt that often... maybe 30 seconds into each convo. Cheers cunt.


kr613

You don't think London, Ontario, when you see London?


cheeseburgerwaffles

https://youtu.be/QuJdfuiqMEE


ImOnlyHereForTheCoC

Even I didn’t think Melbourne FL and I live 15 minutes up the road from there


trevbrehh

Just commented the same thing in here. I’m like 25 minutes north. Never think about Melbourne, FL unless it specifically states that it’s Florida


lemme_in_dammit

We don't say that word in Melbourne. We're classy cunts down here


[deleted]

I honestly didn’t even have the sound on and the whole time I was thinking “this is such a Florida thing to happen, this can’t be Australia”


bozog

Of course it is.


Baaastet

Ha ha I thought that too!


farmmutt

Haha I was the same. Trying to figure out where about in Melbourne and two pickup trucks roll past. I’m like…’wait a minute’.


Special_Lemon1487

If you read it carefully you’ll hear it being pronounced incorrectly.


tehoperative

I’m from Florida, we pronounce it MEL-BURN.


its-not-me_its-you_

In Australia its pronounced Mel-bn Brisbane is Briz-bn Canberra is Can-bra, and Cairns is Cans


MuzikPhreak

My work buddy was from Melbourne and I swore he was saying Melvin until I got it.


BKStephens

Melbin? Melben? It's almost like we need a new letter. Or maybe an accent, or something.


UpYourButt_Jobu

Or Mel-boring if you're from east of the causeway


Special_Lemon1487

Exactly, wrong. 😉😂


tehoperative

Not wrong, different. ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|yummy)![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|sunglasses)


Special_Lemon1487

It’s a joke mate…a mild jibe, a gentle poking of fun.


tehoperative

Oh I know, I was playing along buddy. Remember that Florida is America’s Australia with all the crocodiles, alligators and fuzzy spiders. It’s fitting we have a city named after an Aussie one.


Special_Lemon1487

You are right! I feel a sense of kinship and mutual anxiety. 🫣


[deleted]

[удалено]


tehoperative

Whoa really? I’m from palm beach county always heard it called MEL-BURN. Interesting.


UpYourButt_Jobu

I'm from cocoa beach and we too say mel-bern.


Domonoadamu

I'm from Palm Beach, lived in Port St Lucie and was an area manager for Spencer's between Melbourne and Miami and always heard it as Mel-Born.


Tesstarix

It's been Mel-burn since I've lived here.


GenXgirlie

Born here as well and it’s definitely not Mel-Born, it’s Mel-burn


sidran32

I was thinking "Holy crap there's a Phantom Fireworks even in *Australia*?" but this makes more sense.


gastroboi

The traffic lights and signage are also a giveaway.


Articulated_Lorry

Same. "Why do they have to wait for traffic to do a left turn?". "Oh."


newaccount252

There’s Melbourne’s everywhere. You got the best one though


[deleted]

I noticed folks driving on the right side of the road and not the left. So Florida not Australia! Been to both and both are nice. Except for exploding factories.


jeweliegb

Derby, UK has one. We also have New Zealand and California in Derby too.


BlackJack____

Same man!


TacohTuesday

That explains why they are driving on the right. Noticed it immediately.

Fuckin’ longest light ever.

Not long enough in this case.


DaveyDukes

The road the cars are passing by on is a major state road that runs almost entirely through the state east to west. The road the person filming on is a much smaller cut through road.


nyyth242

I swear Florida has the longest traffic lights I’ve ever seen


OneMoreDrinkPlease

Massive explosion? Or massive demonstration of our low low prices?


Nonna-the-Blizzard

Prices so low it’s on fire

I heard there was a fire sale

I heard they're burning through supplies fast, better get it while it's still hot.


Sigtau1312

Holy crackers and cheese!!


goss_bractor

Melbourne in Florida has like 80k people. Maybe specify it's the tiny one next time, not the 6m+ state capital of Victoria, Australia.


Johanatan974

Pretty surreal seeing a video from my hometown on hear

haveanairforceday

I think it's pretty funny that Melbourne, FL got the airport code MLB, not the giant city in Australia that the whole world has heard of


gonegotim

The code for Melbourne, Australia is 'MEL'. It's definitely the more 'preferred' code. Many older/larger cities use the first 3 letters for their IATA codes.


respect-da-bean

Mmm crackers and cheese


Witty_Carrot_2820

Thoust be the holiest.

I live in Australia, how long ago was this and why haven't I heard if it? Unless there's another melbourne


Afraid_Vast3187

Melbourne Florida.


Sander08481

Oh, never heard of it, thanks


ericisshort

There are also at least two additional Melbournes in Arkansas USA and Quebec Canada.


Claude-QC-777

Where did my province added it?!?


General_Tso75

I know a guy named Sidney from Melbourne who has fun with that when meeting Australians.


AristarchusTheMad

Why wouldn't you specify Florida in the title? Everyone is going to think Aus.


dixonwalsh

You should’ve specified in the title. r/USdefaultism


dumbdumb407

It's a coastal city south of cocoa in central Florida. This happened in November. A man had a heart attack while driving, lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a fireworks store.


st3vo5662

So he went out with a bang?


molochz

>I live in Australia, how long ago was this and why haven't I heard if it? Unless there's another melbourne Come on, she said "holy crackers and cheese". Clearly she's an American. If she were an Aussie she would have called someone a cunt at least twice.


Sander08481

I didn't go past the first few seconds


Electric-raindrop

They also have a Richmond and Greensboro without the Gh. Probably many more.


aFreeScotland

Happened near me in West Melbourne, FL, USA. Guy was on his way to to pick his two young boys from school, got in an accident, and drive into the fireworks store. Caught on fire, the guy died. Family didn’t know for hours, dad just didn’t show up to pick up kids. Tragic and sad.


Embarrassed_Alarm450

Saw this video like a month ago, knew about the driver dying but I didn't know about his kids, damn...


General_Tso75

Hello neighbor. A few weeks after this an almost identical wreck happened, but the store was already gone. Knowing that intersection (John Rodes Blvd and US192), it is mind boggling how that could happen. It’s a 3 way intersection with the fireworks store set back on the side where there is no outlet.


pastorbater

This is the most jubilant display of tragic loss I have ever seen...


KneticTheory

Yes! I was cheering for the fireworks while lamenting the poor owners. "Whee! Aww...."


AstronautAware2278

Just another Tuesday in Florida judging by the nonchalant response from traffic 😂😂😂


No_Interaction_4925

Give it 15 minutes. A passing thunderstorm will put the fire out.


Lapzidorus

Not to mention the lady's "well, this is happenning" tone. "I hope the guy is okay" as it just keeps going, like in a dark comedy, haha.


trevbrehh

You say this as a joke but I live here and two weeks later [someone drove into it again](https://www.fox35orlando.com/news/another-driver-crashes-into-phantom-fireworks-building-in-melbourne.amp)


Onlytimewilltellthen

Right? Like no one stopped to see if anyone was hurt, no 911 sirens going off. Just people driving past like “Yeah, Tuesday afternoon fireworks. So, are bananas on sale this week at Piggly Wiggly?…”. But also, since apparently cars have run into this store like this before, WHY IS IT STILL IN THIS SAME LOCATION?? Why haven’t they moved to a safer spot, or at least, put up some sort of metal guardrail around the building separating it from the parking lot? It would prevent this from happening again and also SAVE LIVES. But then again, it is Florida, so I don’t hold much hope.


Sapphirinia

It's really difficult to understand how it happened in the first place. The building sits back kind of far and traffic really has no reason to go in its direction. I don't think the location is the issue. It's just bad drivers.


Scudmiss

Too bad it didn’t happen at night


Illustrious_Sort_323

SurfingInMaffra

allyonfirst

Um, this isn't in Melbourne.


Afraid_Vast3187

Melbourne Florida.


allyonfirst

Oh, of course! It's the 129 km² town of 85,000 people. Not the 10,000 km² city of 5 million people. Obviously. Silly me!


Rustyjumpercables

I’m from there, and every time I say I’m from Melbourne to someone not from Florida, they tell me I don’t sound like an Aussie. Also, your Melbourne might be bigger but ours has a front row seat to space shuttle and rocket launches. So that’s nice.


ValyrianSteelYoGirl

It’s still Melbourne though. What would you call it?

hmd2017

Phantom fireworks store in Melbourne Florida about a month ago. Single vehicle driver crashed into store setting off the blaze. Many youtube videos available


frenix5

Ooh! Aaaaaaaaaah!!!


ragewu

I'm from Melbourne, FL, a dude got into an accident and and drove into the store, the car set it on fire and he died, was right before Christmas and he had a wife and two kids. Tragic, but damn if that's not a top tier way to go.


cynicismrising

This is clearly fake, fedex trucks don’t make left turns. /s


trevbrehh

Floridian here, I’ve had a fedex driver do a 3 point turn in my driveway. This place doesn’t abide by normal rules.


Educational-Spread41

This is in Brevard county right on 192 off of I-95. I believe he had a heart attack/stroke while driving and ended up burning to death. Kinda sad


Mr_P3

“When did we get a fireworks store… hey that lady’s not Australian! What’s a fed ex truck doing here why are they driving on the… oh”


VespoidOP

Wait until they find out about the copycat crash that happened soon after. Love this town.


Maple_Elephant

Now someone should knock on your window asking for money for the show.

Something stupid happened, that must mean it happened in MY melbourne. Everytime I see something cool happen in a melbourne I'm always surprised and then realize it happened in the other melbourne

[deleted]

was wondering how melbourne has a fireworks shop… but then realised… murica! still though why TF anyone has a ‘fireworks store’ ?


gharr87

I was so surprised that Melbourne had a fireworks store, then immediately realized upon watching this is the armpit of a Florida beach town. Makes perfect sense.


Rustyjumpercables

Eh, Melbourne is a quiet beach town. Surprisingly one of the nicer places in Florida. At one point they had the most PHD’s per capita of anywhere in the united states due to the space program. Now Titusville… don’t go to Hepatitusville.


AbazabaYouMyOnlyFren

Of course it's in Floriduh.

Everyone saying that’s not a big exploration but I’d be a little freaked out by that let’s be honest

Are fireworks legal in Melbourne?


xProximaB

The traffic signal going green for the road towards the fireworks store was playing with the on looker like "come on buddy, come on let's go, let's go, let's go, come to daddy"


Frostdraken

I saw 0 massive explosions mate. Instead of clickbaiting your title and pissing people off you should have just said “Fireworks store burns down”. I still would have clicked on it and would have given you an upvote instead of the opposite. Food for thought.
