Alaskans Celebrate 4th Of July By Launching Cars Off A Cliff (It’s Too Bright To See Fireworks)

Alaska 4th of July

I can’t imagine living in Alaska during this time of the year…

Or actually any time in particular. It’s either an endless amount of snow and freezing temperatures, or brightness all day.

Seriously, if you go to Alaska right now, the sun rises around 5 AM, and doesn’t set until a bit before midnight.

I can only imagine how messed up everybody’s natural body alarms are when it’s pushing midnight and you’re still wide awake because it feels like it’s just getting to be dinner time.

And another negative of this weird sunrise and sunset situation, is that you can’t shoot fireworks at a decent hour on the 4th of July.

However, the fine people out in Alaska have found the perfect way to work around this unusual circumstance…

And that’s the annual Glacier View Car Huck.

According to Bro Bible, the “Car Huck” is where cars are basically sent off the side of a mountain, so residents can watch the cars burst into flames down below.

I don’t know about y’all, but this sounds like some high quality entertainment.

Not to mention, it’s a great way for residents to release the frustration of not getting to celebrate Independence Day the same way everybody else does in the United States.

I’ll admit, I’m kinda jealous that I’ll more than likely never get to witness this in person, but at least we have some awesome videos to fill that void.

These videos just scream:

“‘Merica, f*ck yeah.”
