It was still 2018 in Bulgaria, so not totally incorrect.

These fireworks extravaganzas take 15 months to prepare with a team of 30 odd people. You only had one job!

I love that they just laughed about it.In Japan,there would have been demotions,firings,pay reductions,blanket apologies and maybe even a suicide or two but the Aussies just laughed it off.Good on yer mates.

Got a nice chuckle from this story. Life happens. At least nobody was physically harmed.

Gotta ask. Did they reuse the numbers from last year and just think the savings was good for the party?
