The burning of the Waffle was saved until last. Anything else would have been anticlimactic.

The encircling crowd was held way, way back, I'm guessing maybe 200 yards (that's two football fields for you non-quantitative types). Even at that distance it was so scorchingly hot that people had to shield their faces when it really got roaring.

I like this moment when the Eye of Sauron appeared in the opening, proving once and for all that Belgians are in league with dark forces.

This was the best thing I've ever seen burn.
