This has really hit a nerve: here’s a version with 23,000+ RTs – there’s also another kicking around with 13k or so.

Felicity writes, “it burns *eventually* – along boring five minutes of watching something trying to catch fire against a wooden door.”

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.”
