Burj Khalifa Made A World Record With Its Spectacular Light Show On NYE BUT People Were Mighty Unimpressed
Burj Khalifa's light show was the single most anticipated event of Dubai's NYE celebrations.
Hundreds and thousands of people thronged Downtown Dubai to witness yet another Guinness World Record being made.
This was the first time the iconic Burj Khalifa did not welcome the new year with fireworks, but with a laser show appropriately named as Light Up 2018.
And while the event in itself was every bit fascinating, plenty of people remained rather unimpressed with the show.
Dubai was lit up
Burj Khalifa broke a new world record
Yet everyone wasn't impressed
Am I the only one disappointed with the Burj Khalifa laser show...— DubaiNameShame (Breast Cancer #GetItChecked) (@DubaiNameShame) December 31, 2017
Anyway.... Happy New Year to you all
People were apparently upset
And a couple of them missed the good old fireworks
It was boring compared to the fireworks of previous shows. Won’t be coming back to see that again.— Artimus Zacharia (@ArtimusZacharia) January 1, 2018
Some of the people displayed their disappointment through sarcasm
2018 Dubai NYE lightshow, imma let you finish, oh wait you already did. Awks.— Savannah (@EasyAsPieMmmPie) December 31, 2017
And others didn't mince their words
Bruh Khalifa’s “light show” was the biggest shitshow I’ve ever seen. 2018 starts off with disappointment. 😂🎊— Shaun (@TheShaun_7) December 31, 2017
Wasn't worth it?

Me: It was totally worth the 2+ hours of waiting in traffic to see a 10 min show 😍💚😭.
Narrator: It was not worth it.
P.S. Happy New Year from Dubai ☄ pic.twitter.com/aSkNDsuVBJ
But, to be fair, more people who witnessed the event were enthralled by the show.
The light and laser show was awesome 😍— ϟ Maryam Whomst'd've ϟ 🤓 (@thatmaryam) December 31, 2017
