We know that alcohol makes people do stupid things, but having someone light your face on fire just reaches a new low. William Bonner, a 36-year-old man, made a bet with friends at an Augusta, Georgia bar that left him with second degree burns on his head and face.
According to witnesses, Bonner and the crew made a conscious effort to find a liquor that would easily catch fire once ignited. After searching, they chose Bacardi 151 to pull off the stunt.
This surveillance video captured the chaos that lasted around ten seconds. In it, you can clearly see Bonner bend over as his friend douses him in rum and another lights his head on fire. Bonner then frantically runs to be extinguished. Don’t try this at home. Ever.
Despite the stupidity exemplified by Bonner and his posse, we wish him a full recovery!
