I guess they were testing the EMAS that was installed after their last famous runway overrun....

The last famous incident:

Thankfully, EMAS worked and this one ended as well as possible.

Interesting note: the EMAS extends to the left of the runway by a couple hundred feet; that extended area is where this aircraft ended up. I've never seen EMAS extend that far, so perhaps a lucky break there.

And yeah, it has been raining pretty hard here in SoCal all morning.

Wow! That makes a mess. What materials are they using for the EMAS at BUR?
A million great ideas...
