4th of July fireworks set off on top of man's head

(CBS) - When working with fireworks, it's important to keep a cool head. Take the guy in the above video - he's doing a bit of 4th of July celebrating, but is something of a "hot head". Watch to see what I mean.

And do I even need to say that no one (not just kids) should ever try this at home?

Is it just me or are the number of things that could go wrong with this "trick" just astronomical?

The poster of the YouTube video "1wingcutter" writes about it:

My father in law let us light fireworks off his head! Hysterical stuff! Must see!

Hysterical?  Okay, maybe a bit.  Must-see stuff?  Sure.  Dangerous?  Without a doubt.
