The U.S. Army on Saturday commemorated St. Patrick's Day with an unusual video showing exploding four-leaf clovers.

The video, posted to Twitter, features a montage of spent ammunition and exploding bombs bursting into clover-like plants. Breaking up the scenes is footage of a dancing soldier overlaid on the colors of an Irish flag.

"We appreciate how everyone wears a little green like us today," a tweet on the Army's official account reads.

The video drew some criticism on Twitter, with some users urging the Army to delete the tweet.

Others seemed generally unamused or even perplexed by the video.
