Firework War – WARNING: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME. Funnel Hacker TV Feature Films – Episode 4

last year the four fourth of July I was talking to my friend Zack and we were just talking about some cool things and he mentioned to me what his family tradition was in the past he said that his brothers used to get together every year on a big basketball court and they would go and they set up obstacles and they’d have prior work Wars with each other so you kidding me like that sounds like the craziest thing ever I want to be part of that and I said what’s going to take for us to do that and so last year he would put the whole thing together we did the first annual firework or and it was most just crazy intense thing I’d have been part of we got there and we had full face masks we had knee pads with everything on and we started shooting roman candles and bottle rockets and purses actually we could find at the firework store and we’re shooting at each other and for about an hour it was amazing the most part there’s no real injuries one guy showed through a firework war with short sleeves on which didn’t make much sense he got shot in the arm and it kind of hit something was spurting blood which he would bet there’s one one that was bad one of the guys skinnier guy he picked up a mortar which we were shooting the mortars in the sky and weren’t supposed to shoot at each other but I think you got a set Nixon up but he turned it turned it on us he shot it and the kickback actually came and hit his collarbone and shattered his collarbone he had to go to the the ER so that was like one bad thing from last year so I thought you know this year we got a little bit different we need to make some rules Sheree said it was no-holds-barred last year this year we were gonna have some rules to set some rules and we wanted to really kind of be a little more strategic about this year to make people more safe but also we have a lot more fun we found out what fireworks have the most amount of fun with the least amount of possibility of death and so that’s kind of what we started doing and so we went and exactly mapped out the whole the whole strategic layout of what the courses would be like and and how it was going to set up things so that while we were in the middle of war things would be exploding from all sources of areas he had the piccolo keep bombs they had pine cones on top of them so he’d be running also anything to explode and pine cones to be flying he felt like he was actually in a war and it was most amazing things who mapped out the whole process first and then we went to Fat City fireworks which is about 10 15 miles outside of Boise and I think it’s an injury to reserve or something because when you go there you have all sorts of different rules like you go there they’ve got not just like the good fireworks they’ve got the good fireworks and you get anything you want you get the mortars the huge like just everything you can dream of is there and this place is literally it’s like looking out into a grocery store like you get a shopping cart you walk around and you fill this thing full of as many fireworks as you can afford and it’s like the most crazy experience back with these two little kids they said they’d been working there so they’re like three years old and they’re walking around and we’re like picking up a big old thing is like now that one sucks got this one and there’s like coaching us on which fireworks for the best to get or getting our car full and we were strategically remembering from the year before like what what things will have the biggest impact when you leave it’s kind of funny because they have you sign a paper it basically says that you will not blow these up in idle as soon as you leave the Indian Reservation everything you have you can’t blow up in Idaho which of course we didn’t blow it up in Idaho we went to some other state that allows things and then we came back and as a can his brothers never came and set up this fort and that was the beginning of the second annual firework for my name is Russell Brunson and I’m part of an underground group of entrepreneurs that you’ve probably never even heard of before we don’t rely on cash from venture capitalists to get started and we don’t even have goals to go public either in fact our motivation is the exact opposite so we have products and services and things that we know change people’s live because we’re fighting against the big brands people with literally unlimited budgets we have to do things differently we have to do things smarter we don’t have financial safety net because every testing you take with our own money we have to be profitable to day number one so how do we do that how is that even possible if you ask the MBAs or look at your college textbooks they will tell you that what we are doing is impossible it’s happening every single day it has happened to an art and a science what we call funnel hacking it’s not really something that I can explain to you something I have to show you these stories are a glimpse of on servers just like you we have a dream and a vision you want to change the world in their own little way I use a phone hacking process they’ll make their dream reality yes we are funnel actors and these are our stories [Music] behind me we’ve got a lot of structures we got two forts we got a tower in the middle and the fuse will go all the way around the tower continually lighting fountains and other effects that will go off in the middle for all the spectators out watching we’ll have lots of fun music to keep the adrenaline high for the players and also for the viewers the spectators will be able to sit there and have their own little dance party in the grass well there’s lots of booming and banging and explosions on the arena so it’s going to be epic it’s going to be the best battle we’ve had ever how well that’s going on we’ll have ground troops on both sides advancing on each other sports with bottle rockets rifles with crackling ball grenades smoke balls and all the fun fireworks for adults each player will get a pack of his own roman candles lots of missiles fountains Renee crackling balls ground blooms each player gets the tiki torch and so this will be the american side on the other side of the court we have a britain side so we got the Redcoats advancing on the Patriots over here of course every player is armed with their own facial gear to protect you know the most vital parts your eyes players everything else is optional glove kneepads all those kind of things to protect you from advancing and rolling and ducking and diving on the sport course with concrete Russell and I definitely are going to be Patriots we’re going blown away every Redcoat that’s trying to surround us and flanked us an advance on our fort but we’re going to just like the Patriots of wolves we’re going to unify and dominate that’s participative ox you only done it one time it’s been a little while and a bit vigorous announcement the history of the firework war it’s back to childhood days in Texas where we would throw fireworks at each other and launch different things at each other and I carried over when we moved to Idaho one year we just decided to build a structure a fort on our sport court and attack it and have people defend it and that kind of spawned these annual events where two teams just go at it against each other throwing launching shooting firing fireworks each other until we either run out of fireworks or somebody gets injured severely this year’s going to be the biggest year ever so it to be [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] I [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Laughter] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Applause] [Music] oh you ran into damage like I was a fundraising that was a blast one of my highlights was when you were up against the floor like trying to figure out where the thank yous was because part of the hard part of the war is like getting the fuses all straps and getting into the flame to light it and your the mask is like you can kind of see through the math but kind of foggy if you’re like foggy satisfy specific designs of smoke because we got these giant smoke balls but I got so much to open like we started the course and started the whole war with like four of these bad boys and we constantly repair on these and we mix the fog and smoke and fire flying in your face everywhere so Russell’s up against the wall like trying to figure out what he’s going to shoot next one of my brothers comes it attacked in and take like a roman candle almost point-blank to the sky and he gets mad up the wounds to prove it masses burn on his neck that was pretty big plus if you’ve notes like this one I deserve this was like a stupidity burn I abandon now my fingers too much melted off last year people would throw like mountains at it and you catch them and throw them back there’s really fun so someone threw one of the ground flowers at my spot coming it hit exactly so I’m going to grab it I had a glove launched my complete idiot right so I picked it up and I think I grabbed right we’re like little flame that’s you spitting that thing is just like a blowtorch burn through the glove into my skin into my balls like ah and just go ahead run this bucket the water’s like stick my in the bucket it was burning the entire night and I got these two that like melted through my shirt and just they’re still I think I got mostly injuries you got one though if I got a really bad one he had one will bounce off his chest and into a shirt burning Chester oh yeah my brother and I took cover behind the exact same palette and we both popped up at the same time but can’t feel the art of the fog and and the the smoke and my brother who has no mercy be like court-appointed my dad and I have button-up shirt and it hits me in the chest all down my shirt and blows up across my proper back is it all burn it all off the good news is wind up winning they came out laughing it with flags to call the feet unfortunately for them us had already loaded up and shots are being fired while they had the because the peace flags up in matter it was over now so overall it was amazing experience nobody died yeah nobody broke anything this year I think just a highlight of this year I felt like you’re getting shot at by fountains the entire time because you’re running under these pickle pee bombs and sound all from the bad guys pop up behind the palette and take you out for them in candor so overall amazing experience go try at home though do not try this at home yeah I would not recommend we’re trained professionals yeah I’m doing this for years yeah but it was awesome next year we’re on again yeah next year we have even more epic ideas to make the people better than same time same place you better come and watch it while it’s free because eventually this would be a high admission to entertainment oh yeah that’s it guys and
