Remember when you were in your backyard a few summers ago, preparing for your epic Fourth of July festivities, and you thought to yourself, “You know what would really turn this party up to 11? A 20-foot-tall fire tornado that also launches fireworks?” Well, YouTuber (and potential mad man) Colin Furze took your totally real and not-made-up-by-me backyard thought and turned it into an incredibly epic reality.
Furze clearly knows what he’s doing here, considering he somehow managed to not start a raging forest fire. But, where the hell does he come up with this stuff? I wouldn’t be surprised if him and his buddies just hung out in an underground bunker all day, brainstorming absolutely crazy, don’t-try-this-at-home-type inventions.
Don’t get me wrong. This sort of stuff is super awesome to watch. But, you’ve always got to be careful with people who find immense pleasure in crafting contraptions that have the capacity to do a lot more than singe off your neck hair. When it comes to giant machines that shoot out fire every which way, this definitely wasn’t Furze’s first rodeo. He can craft just about anything under the sun (several of them are actually car related), but his speciality seems to be making things that shoot out flames or involve wild explosions.
Let’s just say that if I flip on the evening news tonight and see that a category 5 fire tornado is blazing its way through the countryside, I’ll know exactly who to blame.
