Busy celebrating America’s birthday with the rest of us, John Oliver was off the air this weekend, but he still managed to cover Friday’s festivities. In a pre-recorded segment for Last Week Tonight, Oliver perfectly described every city in the country’s Fourth of July fireworks display, from Anchorage to Orlando.

“One red one exploded. Then a blue one, it also exploded. And then a white one followed and also exploded,” said Oliver, “Then of course red, white and blue all at once: That’s fireworks’ greatest hits right there.” Check it out above, and find out what pyrotechnics sound like when they’re blowing up in a British accent.
