Los Angeles Car Explosion Video

Chainsaws, explosions and Los Angeles. What's there not to like about this viral video of a car bursting into flames on the streets of LA?

LA car explosion (YouTube)
Brought to you by the often shaky, but fairly steady hand of YouTube user Morningstaric, what you see is two and a half minutes of rubber necking to the nth degree. Why check out a bumper to bumper car crash when you can film an exploding car from your balcony with an iPhone?

The clip's highlight comes around the 16 second mark, when the car unexpectedly explodes. In the comments section of the video, users suggest that what we see is the airbag bursting. Whatever it is, it's wild. And so you should probably check out the video here for yourself.
