You… and your mind… are gonna go Something like that Hey everybody, so I’m walking down the streets of Tultepec Mexico, which is just north of Mexico City I’m with my new friend Mike Corey from Kick the Grind. We’re gonna be filming the pyrotechnic festival that happens here every year We’re all super pumped about this and the excitement is real around here. This is going to be awesome. Let’s do the thing So from what very little I know about how this festival became a thing Here in Tultepec there is a patron saint called San Juan de Dios And somehow he became the patron saint of fireworks I don’t know if it was coincidentally or as a result of or what resulted in what but now the Tultepec economy is based off the firework industry and they throw this festival every year to celebrate San Juan de Dios and to boost the local economy So each year they make hundreds of these bulls that you see right now. There’s families that make these There’s whole neighborhoods that pool together and make these bulls so that they can run in a parade and possibly win a cash prize This year they’re going for a world record of like 500 bulls So what’s happening right now is they’re kind of making a parade for these bulls while it’s still light When it comes dark they’re going to be lit up like Christmas Blowing up with fireworks, and it’s going to be spectacular Can’t wait to show you Even the kids are participating Do we have any Star Wars fans here? Mike is just getting all the photos There’s not very many white people here, so… Guys! The size of this one! What? It’s farting confetti! Woohoo! Give them the prize This one’s intense. It’s like the bull from hell There’s no signs that say “no smoking around the fireworks” We’re gonna get a little more geared up to prepare for what’s coming How do you feel, Jason? I’m ready to go, man.
Alright Looking good there Mike Thank you, man Since the dangerous stuff has started already I’m getting a little more covered up to protect myself A lot of people get injured at this festival A couple years ago there was a massive explosion a lot of people died. It was a really awful event I’m going to take precautions This is level 1. level 2 is going to involve a filtered mask to protect my lungs That was INSANE, OMG! This thing’s ginormous! This is crazy. This thing is not going to cut it anymore Just got a direct hit in the back by a firework. And my backpack caught fire. literally burned a hole in it If you’re anywhere within about a hundred feet of this thing you have to be jumping because you will get hit by the fireworks and If you don’t jump, the fireworks may stay on you You guys… Direct hit! Direct hit! It is real out here. Not a joke HERE’S MORE Mike, what are your thoughts so far? I’m kind of speechless it’s like Every bull and little sizzle you hear makes you want to just run if you get hit by those it feels like a pellet gun. like BANG! It hurts. It really hurts. If you’re not wearing goggles, then you’d definitely lose an eye It’s crazy how treacherous this is I’m in agreement. Hey guys. Sorry I didn’t do this earlier, but I wanted to do an official intro. This is Mike Corey Nice to meet you His channel has Kick the Grind on YouTube It’s one of my favorite channels on the platform because he does a whole bunch of adventurous stuff That’s just off-beat and kind of crazy, which I’m really into Thank you the introduction. We are doing some amazing of Mexico I film weird stuff. A lot of weird stuff Some might make your tummy a little bit queasy. some will make your jaw drop come stop by and say hi. I will say hi back Getting out of here! Did you say it’s very relaxed here? Yes, of course It’s quiet… Quiet and relaxed according to the locals who know it all Where are you from, man?
Estados Unidos And so ends this awesome and effing crazy adventure I still can’t really believe that this is a thing anywhere in this world that we live. Muy loco It’s cool that we’re here and there’s really not that many Caucasian type people and so many times people stop and get our photo together with them It’s amazing to be in a spot where they don’t so many tourists like us it’s 1:00 in the morning the festival is still going on probably for a few more hours, but yeah, we’re kind of beat and kind of done with being pelted with blazing hot fireworks, so I’m definitely not as complete as I was going in.
