More powder means more fun right?

In a cannon that might be a bad idea.

Witness a cannon explosion that will rock you to your core.

Cannons are all fun and games until you kaboom it to pieces. Well that is what happened to this formerly gorgeous cannon.

In a video shared by YouTuber Alisa Ellegood we witness a seemingly well built cannon ready to fire. All appears to be going well as people watch the spectacle unfold. The cannon does not fire in a conventional way. It turns into a bomb and lets loose with fury and fire.

Did the loader use too much powder? That would be my best guess as this cannon fail could have been lethal to anyone in shrapnel range. Be careful out there and stay safe.
