This clip of an anti EU protestor attempting to burn an EU flag has gone viral AND is hilarious.

So hooray for the EU!
And also hooray for people being stupider than you, for without that, there would be very little comedy.
Although as AnAuthoritativePanda on Reddit points out, “Why would you publish the video if it was such a failure? Stupidity has no bounds.”
