In all honesty, the theory is sound. Execution would be difficult, but if you are somewhere and in a situation where you need fire, and only have an orange, a rock and a stick, well I guess you make it work.

"Using Only An Orange" .... and a knife, and a rock, and a stick.

Oh, and a syringe filled with isopropyl alcohol, and a strike anywhere match head on the end of the stick.

dude, ya gotta let your audience off the hook at some point.
"tee hee, we don't tell them that we added a flammable substance while the orange was out of view."

There is a chemical in the orange skin of an orange peel. It is flammable, but there is no way putting a rock inside and 3 seconds of friction with a stick will start it on fire.
