The last time I was astonished by the idea of a civilian firing a flame-thrower in a public area was 37 years ago, during my first viewing of William Friedkin‘s Deal of the Century (’83). It happened again last night in Brooklyn, only this time the flame-thrower operator didn’t appear to be a born-again Christian and there was no hot-tempered Latino guy goading him into action.

The New York Post reports that last night’s stunt “was part of a Wu-tang tribute music video by local rapper Dupree G.O.D., according to his social media.”
