    Default TV "prank" (???) goes wrong - host sets magician's head on fire

    This looks really, really bad, but the guy apparently didn't suffer 3rd-degree burns.

    What was dumped on the guy's head was a cheap cologn (Agua de Florida), which is used in Santeria ceremonies, and apparently has a very high alcohol content.

    I'm not sure I understand this. Is the host a psychopath who deliberately set someone on fire? Or is dousing people with alcohol an actual blessing in Dominican Republic, and there was something like a static electric shock when the host wiped his hands over Houchen's head? The cologne didn't look like it was already flaming when the host poured it on Houchen's head - in contradiction to the description in the video. And the host seemed to try to pat the fire out with his own hands. Makes me hesitant to grab my pitchfork.
    Tiene razon, y gracias por su opinion. Now go fuck yourself.

    Good questions, Kat. I cannot answer any of them. I read a few artciles on this and watched the vid and I still don't get it.

    This is my theory: The host was being a wise guy because the other guy was a magician (magic, black magic, etc.). As a joke, I think the host "anointed" the guy with this cologne that apparently gets used in Santeria rituals. But you have to be very careful with things with a high alcohol content. It's one thing to pat your face with a couple of drops, but to pour it is reckless.

    It kind of reminds me of the warning label that comes with Bacardi 151 rum, which is 75% alcohol. It has a warning on it to be extremely careful around open flames. It has a special flame arrester at the top of the bottle (under the cap) to keep the whole bottle from going up.

    The other scary thing is that alcohol can burn with an invisible flame, and you may not even realize you've ignited it, until someone starts screaming in pain. I guess the only lucky thing about this mess was that they immediately knew that this guy's hair was on fire.

    I also believe it was a joke gone wrong. The host acted pretty shocked. I still don't get how the flame ignited, strange.
