Don't try this at home. Seriously.

This intense battle between two guys in China shooting fireworks at each other is going viral.

The official People's Daily outlet tweeted the dangerous "duel" between the two men, where they blasted fireworks on sticks at each other. Needless to say, we don't recommend doing this. Ever.

The scene looks a lot like the showdown between Harry Potter and Voldemort in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2.


The event took place over Chinese New Year, which is usually celebrated with fireworks in China.


These two are not the only ones going viral with dangerous fireworks stunts.

Another guy in China is also going viral with a video of him "firing" his fireworks, Star Wars-style, from a drone.

People online are condemning both risky demonstrations.

"There are high voltage power lines and trees everywhere. Do you think it's a good idea to play with these?" one neitzen said on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.

"Who's gonna take responsibility if something catches fire?" another asked.

It bears repeating: don't try these at home - or anywhere else, for that matter.
