Explosive Test 20,000 Matches vs 100 Lighters

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

Here we are, yet again, watching intently as Mr. Gear gets the creative juices flowing with yet another one of his experiments that don’t really make too much sense but you simply can’t help but watch the result of his wacky ideas coming to life.

This time, the goal at hand is simple. Mr. Gear will be using the likes of 20,000 matches and putting them up against 100 lighters to see what kind of eruption ensues when the heat simply gets as intense as it possibly can, putting pressure on the bottoms of the lighters.

It’s almost as interesting to watch the set up when it happens as it is to watch the actual display itself as all of the matches come together to form a nice little platform for the lighter to sit on, moments before they meet their eventual fate that is rather explosive, to say the least.

Check out the video below that shows off this fiery hot display that helps these lighters to meet their maker. It isn’t every day that you see something like this unfold, so sit back, relax, and put your feet up with your tub of popcorn to watch this fire filled display. Things like this just lead you to wonder what his neighbors are thinking when he goes into the back yard to set up another demonstration like this.
