A father soon regretted filming his cheeky son playing with a lit firework.
In the footage, the boy poses holding a Roman Candle firework upright in a park, believed to be Florida.
As the smoke wafts in the air an explosion of sparks flies upwards and the child quickly changes his stance.
After each small explosion he changes his pose again, pointing the firework in another direction.
He even points the Roman Candle between his legs, firing the sparks backwards.
