The 17-year-old got a Pikachu-looking firecracker to celebrate Independence Day. However, the young YouTuber thought it was a moderate sprinkler. He said, “I got a lot of fireworks right now. Let’s light the Pikachu one, ya’ll. I don’t think it’s gonna be that loud, personally.” Moreover, he burned the cracker on a box of fireworks. Fortunately, other fireworks didn’t catch any fire.

The American streamer was shouting and jumping throughout the room. Speed even said, “I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I thought it was the popping ones, ma.” Meanwhile, fans were watching this celebration fiasco on the stream. The fans had previously asked Speed to light the firecracker outside, but those warnings couldn’t reach him.

The situation got controlled after the American streamer threw it down. Otherwise, this hilarious fiasco could have severely damaged Speed or his house. The stream eventually ended with a fireman coming to check the hazardous situation.

An animator recreated the moment in Minecraft. So, the animator replaced the room background from the original stream with a setup similar to the Minecraft world. Instead of the Pikachu bomb, there was a Minecraft TNT bomb. It was hilarious to watch the young Youtuber screaming and jumping around in the video game world while TNT was about to explode.

This Minecraft edition of the IShowspeed’s failed July 4 celebration even caught the attention of many famous streamers. The Twitch star Félix “xQc” Lengyel recently watched the meme during his live stream, laughing throughout the video.
