"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

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.

"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.

Phwoar!

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).

Clarification. Guy in the video is from the shallow end, not Gerry1of1. Gerry, that was hysterical!

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?

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

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.

Methane gas from the sewer ftw! Same reason you can light farts.

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.

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

Sewers tend to already be filled with methane gas.

Thats one way to determine if gas is leaking into the sewers.
