It was the Fourth of July and everyone was in a festive mood. The night was supposed to wrap up in a very moving, patriotic and joyful atmosphere with the background of a breathtaking fireworks display. But alas, the much-awaited finale of the event ended in a very big disappointment… at least for the ones present in the San Diego Bay area during this year’s Independence Day.
Celebrities like Ellen Degeneres and Incubus’ vocalist Brandon Boyd expressed their dismay over the fireworks mishap. They ridiculed what happened at the Bay over their respective Twitter accounts. Degeneres tweeted
“ like my kind of show… a big opening, and everyone’s in bed by 8:30”.
Incubus front man Boyd on the other hand even shared a photo via Instagram of the supposed fireworks fiasco. He added,
“ I swear this has never happened before”,
followed by the captured image.
Aside from Degeneres and Boyd, other celebrities also voiced out their sentiments about the disappointing show over interactive media website Twitter. The Ready Set musician Jordan Witzigreuter had a bit of regret not seeing the show in person posting:
“Wish I could have seen that San Diego fireworks show last night. Nine seconds of party.”
B.J. Novak who plays Ryan Howard in The Office also posted:
“Obsessed with this San Diego fireworks thing. Can’t get over how promising it must have seemed!”
John Legend’s fiancée and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Christine Teigen had a big laugh at her account tweeting
“Hahahahhaah San Diego accidentally set off all the fireworks in their annual show ALL AT ONCE. Lasted seconds. Wa-waaaaaa.”
“ Was that it?”
Music producer Josh Damigo wrote
“Anyone know if that was on purpose?” adding, “It sure seems like something went wrong!”
