Everyone loves fireworks, especially on New Years Eve, but watching reverse fireworks is a distinctly mind-blowing way to experience a celebratory favorite. Though a quick YouTube search will actually yield several results of everyone's favorite decorative sky bound explosives being played back in reverse, its grand debut happened with a fireworks display in Melbourne, Australia.
Reverse fireworks give a great spin on a staple that, though beautiful, has gotten pretty repetitive over the years. With this in mind, any change to your average exploding firework is welcome -- and what better year to debut it than the year the world survived alleged apocalypse? 2012 may be over, but seriously, what better way to kick off 2013 by looking backwards at an incredible New Year's celebration? Literally.
