Meet Rich and Dee Gibson, founders of Rich's Incredible Pyro, a spectacle of explosions that takes place at air shows around the country. In this New York Times documentary, the couple shares what they love about blowing shit up.
I'm sure at some point in everyone's life, you imagine that you can throw fireballs out of your hands like you're a wizard, superhero or Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter. Well imagine no more! You can now buy a wrist-mounted device that lets you fling fireballs around to your hearts content.
Double you tee eff doesn't begin to explain this. This lunatic takes being a pyro to the next level. He stuffs his mouth with some sort of powder, waves a fan through his ear and starts a fire THROUGH HIS MOUTH.
I admit it: I'm not much one for camping. But why should I go outside to gather around an open flame when I can have one in my own apartment?
Pyro was never my favorite of the X-Men, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited about this DIY project allowing me to mimic his powers. It's called Prometheus, and it's by far one of the best wrist-mounted flamethrowers I've seen.
Our favorite part of this video is not one of the many ridiculous flamethrower scenarios. It's a shot about halfway in where—with no semblance of cohesion—the filmmakers roll a 70" television down the stairs.
