I recently went to Phantom Fireworks in Merrillville, Indiana to buy some fireworks and became an instant fan of their firework naming team. Even though that store has well over 79 million(* by my estimation) different kinds of fireworks, all the names were pretty amusing.
A friend put me in touch with Phantom CEO, Bruce Zoldan who told me that all of their names are Copyrighted and that they take great pleasure in naming their products. They also hold company-wide naming contests.
Below are my favorite 26 pieces of their work.
Happy 4th of July everyone, and let’s carry that World Cup enthusiasm over to the American contestants in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest!
