This DIY fire tornado is definitely something you should not try at home (Video)

Why on earth would you want to create your own fire-nado?

For the intrepid The Slow Mo Guys, it’s a case of flip-reversing that simple question and asking why not? They like fire, they like tornados, so it was a matter of time before they put those dangerous elements together in a terrifying package.

With the help of twelve equally high-powered fans and a very safely organised outdoor fire – away from any buildings or trees – the lads create a column of swirling flames that grows to around 1o feet in height.

It’s all captured in 4k quality video and makes for an awesome – if slightly scary – spectacle.

(It goes without saying, but don’t try this at home…)
