Is there another light that I'm missing?
Exactly. I meant flashing hazard lights. I don't think those are sparks.

Well, I used to work at a local Pepsi distributor and let me tell you, if those racks aren't anchored to the ground it doesn't take much to bend the supports out from underneath them...GOOD TIMES...good times...

On a side note, sure wish I'd snagged a couple of corny kegs back then!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)

Those definitely aren't cases of beer. Crazy nonetheless.

Last fall at the small local brewery I work for we had a forklift accident. It was bottling day and one of our lead brewers was trying to pick up 3 stacked pallets of empty glass... you can imagine what happened.
Think i still have pics of the aftermath somewhere.
Label and logo design available for trade.
