Viral Video Shows Truck Exploding Dozens of Times With Flaming Gas Canisters Flying Off

See if you can count how many times it explodes.

It's certainly not the first time a video showing an explosion has gone viral, but there's something about this one posted on YouTube mid-July that has an extra wow factor.

Perhaps it's that this video with more than a million hits is not of just one explosion but a series of explosions that are jack-in-the-box surprising -- you just don't know when the next one will come up. Maybe there's something almost comical about the slow way the trucks behind it start backing up before picking up the pace as more explosions occur.

Or maybe it's just that it explodes about three dozen times with growing intensity and flaming objects flying from it. It seems to taper off by 5:00, but just as emergency vehicles and people dare approach it again, well, you can probably guess what happens next.

Just watch the footage and see if you don't get a bit startled not knowing when another boom will go up:
