It takes a thrill-seeking daredevil-type to jump out of a plane, with little more than a sheet to slow you down. It takes a complete maniac, then, to set fire to the only thing that can save you from potentially tumbling to your death.
But that's what we have here. A video of someone falling out of a plane, then proceeding to set fire to his own parachute, just because. And because they've got a camera attached to their chest.
"Is that... is he about shoot his own parachute?" you might say, working out that they've somehow managed to get a gun out before they've even pulled the cord. And then, with a wait more tense than every episode of The X Factor combined, they set fire to their canopy.
The point? Who knows. The result? Pretty impressive stuff.
