In 2004, While celebrating New Year's Eve in Reykjavik, Iceland, Kiefer Sutherland saw "probably the most extraordinary fireworks display in my life."
"There are no laws in Iceland with regards to fireworks, which makes New Year's Eve really interesting," he later recalled. "They spend over $15 million on fireworks for that night. It's like a war zone. There's no organization to it. You're walking down the street and you kind of have to look around the corner because rockets may be coming by at any minute. I saw a six-year-old carrying a 30-pound mortar, with another six-year-old following behind with a match. It was amazing.
"We did see one person get hurt. We don't know how badly, because as the ambulance came in to get them, they were surrounded by people who let off more fireworks!"
["I filmed it because I didn't think anyone back home would believe it."]
