I thought it was a crazy Roman candle malfunction but looked to powerful.
On second inspection I think you are correct.

Who the fuck is stupid enough to hold the launching tube?!?

Those who don't deal well with blood and gore might want to skip page 9 of that PDF, otherwise it's a sobering reminder of what can happen when things go wrong. While I have sympathy for him, anyone who can make such a device should really know better than to light it like that. Looks like he had a firing unit too.

Exactly what I was thinking. I’m an explosive technician and have never once seen, heard of or even hand lit even a microgram of HE. I’m baffled he didn’t use them, he had them sitting right there
My kryptonite is fe2o3, that stuff stained my work bench for months.

Greetings all. Newbie to this forum. Saw this video years ago and stumbled upon it again recently. What kind of wick do you folks think this poor chap used that made the explosive detonate to quickly? Obviously it was not the correct one!
