       You might want to review the video of the PEPCON explosion; a lot bigger than a Davy Crockett !

       I'm thinking of a actual size affair so this would basically make a "hollow" cloud, an actual size cloud needing a lot of mass. Much more than you could fit in a 55 gallon drum.   

       This would shoot a matrix of smoke explosions that would shape the cloud.   

       Could shape other stuff as well I suppose. A 3 mile tall smoke shape forming a... I don't know, rabbit?   

       I think that's different enough from the examples, no?

       Easier to just do the real thing surely?

       Title updated to reflect.

       Well, at least it's original sounding. Now as to why it's a bad idea... Fireworks displays are usually at night, and pros try to avoid lingering smoke as it makes air bursts seem dimmer and less distinct (link). A billowing cloud at the end though - in the dark - after all the sparkly stuff is done - may not be very impressive.

       Yes, but this would be in the day.   

       However I have a time limit on defending this idea. A) Because it's stupid and B) See reason A.

       Has that ever stopped a truly dedicated half-baker?
kdf, Jul 21 2020
  

       Nope. In fact, "B" has always been my primary motivation.   

       That and you learn stuff from time to time.
