Haha, I hope you're joking with the "effect"
It's a real kaboom
Empty Xbox 360 shell + empty Xbox 1 Samsung drive shell. Two wires are hooked up to a 9 volt battery, with a model rocket ignitor in the circuit. The ignitor is sitting next to a small Black Cat firecracker. Touch two wires together, completes the circuit, ignitor sparks, and the firecracker lights.
No special effects, just a good half hour of setting it up to poke fun at the "Two-wire bricked my drive!"
I actually fooled some people, which I thought was hilarious. I wasn't trying to make it look real, I mean.. I filmed it in the middle of my garage with no cables plugged in.
PS: You can see the ignitor light the first time, but I pulled my hands away too quick, before it lit the firecracker. I was trying to get my hands out of the way, I didn't know how big the pop would be.
