He haz all ur gunpowderz.

I actually pulled this post off a little failed blog experiment that I did a while back, and I realized that it is still pretty funny. No rednecks were permanently harmed in the making of this video.

As I said in that post, and as I will say in this post, blowing stuff up is awesome. Unless you are a terrorist or the Unabomber, in which case you are teh suxxorz. So, restated less crazily, recreational demolition with no criminal malice intended or delivered is awesome. Anyhoo, what is even better than blowing stuff up personally is watching others blow stuff up. Particularly when they experience unintended consequences.



What makes this awesome is how the dude had the common decency to apologize for almost killing himself. I mean, this would be awesome regardless, but the addition of a courteous, self-effacing apology just puts it over the top. Over the top to TWWoT territory where it belongs, my babies.

Holy cow! That was equally hilarious and disturbing. And you're right -- the apology at the end really was the icing on the cake. I am seriously cracking up right now...

The biggest tragedy is that tablecloth wasn't destroyed in the process.

Wow. really you are already using reruns.

Timbo said...

It's not a rerun because no one but you saw this before, and this blog is working on being three years old, jerkface.

Wow.

"A little too much magnesium, I guess."

Sad (?) thing is, I thought that guy was one of my friends, for a minute.

Not even 2 seconds into that video and I start laughing uncontrollably. What is WRONG with me? That poor guy...

Helen said...

Oh my....did he not ever hear of a barbecue starter?

Katdish, you weren't listening. It is not a tablecloth, but a "protective covering".

It's the 'Deliverance' music that makes it. And the "holy smokes" comment with NO inflection in his voice? Blew the emotion right out of him, didn't it. Yeah, that was a pant-wetter.

I was expecting the explosion and still jumped. I must be tired. Who plays with fireworks on Halloween? Oh and there is a small chance I'm related to that guy. Kinda looks like a 3rd cousin of mine. I'm just saying.

Good thing he turned the lights out so we could see it better. I would have hated to miss it...

J.R.Shirley said...

Gosh, that makes me giggle.

Damn, that was a tearjerker, like a shrimp tail. The pivot point to greatness was the way the guy remained all nonchalant after the huge explosion in his face.
