Man accidentally blows up garden as stunt backfires (VIDEO)
Viral footage of the incident, which should clearly be labeled with a “Do not try this at home” caption, has now hit over 300,000 views.
The man is seen hesitating and taking a few steps back in the footage, which is believed to have been taken somewhere in Germany. He tosses the candles onto the giant mountain of crumpled paper.
Within seconds, predictably, things go wrong as the mound explodes with a huge bang, sending flames in all directions.
A frightened woman who is filming the commotion lets out a scream and backs into the house for safety as the flames spread.
She immediately asks the man to put out the fire with water and they ponder over calling emergency services for help. Once again, do not try this at home, folks.
