(Newser) – Ever wondered what July 4 looks like from a firework's perspective? Well wonder no longer. Just watch this clip from 19-year-old videographer Jeremiah Warren, who strapped a tiny spy camera onto a series of fireworks. The little 808 #11 camera miraculously survived multiple flights, and provided some pretty high-quality video—though it might make you a bit dizzy.

"I was going to mount fins on the [rockets] to stabilize them," Warren tells Mashable. "But by the time I got the idea I already shot through my supply, and when I went to get more they had put a ban on fireworks sales."
