This the dumbest thing we have come across recently. He was as lean as a sparkler, wearing a mundu and a t-shirt and there was something hanging from his mouth: a line of firecrackers.
Then a girl walks up to him with a light and take it to the wick of the dangling firecracker. There are warnings and exasperations in Tamil as background noise. But he is not scared.
Within seconds, the crackers go phat,phat phat. The furious sparks lick his face, lips, shirt, face, but this man doesn’t let go the cracker thread that he is biting on to. For safety reasons, we assume, he has closed his eyes.
After the burst ceases, he slowly opens his eyes and gives a reassuring massage to his closely cropped head with a sheepish grin.
While he doesn’t seem to be injured at all, please don’t try this
