This Kentucky teenager is a definite contender for the Winner (loser) of the Darwin Awards with this very poor attempt at The Fire Challenge and just generally staying alive. The Fire Challenge is similar to the whole neknomination craze, except a whole lot dumber due to the fact that it requires you to set yourself alight using a flammable liquid.
People are actually doing this and getting burnt… having to live with permanent scars, all in the name of capturing their 15 minutes of fame online. The 15-year-old in the video had this to say when asked about why he even tried to complete the Fire Challenge –
“I don’t know, I wasn’t thinking really.”
Damn straight you weren’t. Oh internet… sometimes you give me a sad.
