Guy Lights a Firecracker in His Pocket… Just to See What Would Happen

It’s simple: just combine some alcohol, fireworks and free time and you’ll get this. What’s this? A video of some dude in England who decides to see what would happen if he stuck a lit firecracker into one of the pockets in his cargo shorts.

He allegedly did the stunt as a dare from his friend who filmed the entire event. If he did it, he’s get £10, which is about $16.60 in US dollars.

“It hurt, mate,” he exclaimed after the explosion in his pocket shredded his pants and left a large welt on the back of his leg.

As much as we’d like to encourage that people safely handle their fireworks, there’s something satisfying about watching knuckle-headed fools do stupid things.
