You might think shooting fireworks in the middle of the day is a bit daft, but you won't after seeing this.

Cai Guo-Qiang is an artist working in China who specialises in creating impressive displays of fire and smoke as part of his work.

This piece, entitled Elegy, shows what he can do with coloured smoke and a LOT of pyrotechnics.

The display took place in Shanghai as part of the Ninth Wave exhibition and, as you'll see, is really unlike anything you've seen before.

Before you hit play, we'd advise you muting the thing or if you're on headphones, taking them off. IT'S LOUD.

Take a look!
