    Sewers tend to already be filled with methane gas.

    i was gonna say... that big of a force requires something really explosive. I agree it is probably gas - what else could it be?

    It BLEW HIS JACKET OFF. So awesome... of course I hope he`s OK... but then again you have to be pretty stupid to throw an explosive device in a sewer that is more often than not filled with methane from all the decomposing sewage.

    That`s amazing. The force actually blows the man`s jacket off his body. Thank God the children stepped back a bit just before he did it.

    When I was kid my father would tell us to never drop fireworks into the manhole covers because the methane could explode.

    Oh Gerry, please no. Watching a chinese bloke get his clothes blown off narrated in swedish was bad enough, but now I have to go to sleep with One Man One Cup in my mind. Where`s the brain bleach?

    It`s narrated in Norwegian. But it`s sorta close enough, and that`s from a Swede; it`s better than people mistaking us for the Swiss (and yes, that happens more often than you`d think).

    "It BLEW HIS JACKET OFF."

    I know right. I think that was the best part aside from the lid crushing the roof when it came down.

    I guess this guy forgot that a sewer is filled with gas.

    As great as that clip was, it would have been even better if the man had sat cross-legged atop the manhole cover and put on an astronaut helmet before dropping in the firecracker. I hope he remembers to do that next time.

    Awesome... but he should have used a waaaay longer fuse. He would have time to light it and get to a safe distance rather than getting blasted to the ground

    Wow, the stupidity of some people here just amazes me. You know, because a lit fuse has nothing to do with fire until it ignites the firecracker....

    Jesus christ you are dumb
