Can Anyone Explain How This Giant Ice-Block Stick Wave Exploded?

How is this possible? Thousands upon thousands of rainbow ice-block sticks, layered together into an enormous exploding chain reaction. But… but how? Is there a spring somewhere? Is the thing held together by sheer tension? Childhood magic! Holy shit.

Physics is incredible. This was also probably the happiest child on the face of the planet at this particular moment, until he gets his MIT scholarships. But now: “CLEAN IT UP, KIDDO!”
