Malaysians Celebrate CNY With Fireworks That Shoot Out From 'Ghostbusters' Blasters
"Care Bears Malaysia."
A TikTok video of a group of people playing with fireworks during Chinese New Year in Malaysia has recently gone viral
The video, which has garnered over 44,900 plays since it was posted three days ago, shows a group of people shooting fireworks out of Ghostbusters-like blasters by the side of an empty street.
Accompanying the video is the theme song of Ghostbusters, to match the fictional proton pack devices that are used in the film to catch ghosts
Fireworks can be seen during every festival in Malaysia, but many are still considered illegal due to danger risks
According to Minor Offences Act 1955, those who are caught letting off fireworks – unless authorised to do so – may be subjected to punishment in the form of a fine of not more than RM100, or imprisonment for no more than a month, if not both.
In other words, you may submit an application to obtain permission or licence to ignite fireworks for certain events.
Otherwise, the only types of fireworks that are legal are from the brands Happy Boom and Pop Pop, as reported by Bernama last year.
