However, unlike any legitimate YouTube page, if you try and watch the video, then it tries to force you to download and run an executable in order to watch the fireworks show by the American Pyrtotechnics Association.
Most people love fireworks, but you're not going to be celebrating if your PC becomes part of a botnet for criminals to commit identity theft and launch spam and malware campaigns.
Americans are not the only ones at risk from this attack either - people around the world with US-based friends may be tempted to follow the link and watch the video. Many Americans who are enjoying the long weekend may return to work on Monday morning not realising what may be waiting for them in their inbox.
While others are celebrating, the hackers are busy working - to steal money from you, identities, and convert your computer into a bot.
