funny shit 10/07/2019


The Queensland Police Service have released a shocking video of a 'burnout' gender reveal party gone wrong to send a warning for expecting parents. 

The drone video shot on the Gold Coast shows the first part of the 'burnout' reveal going according to plan.

Guests are seen celebrating as a black Holden drives along with blue smoke hissing out the back, indicating a boy.

Things quickly take a turn for the worst after about 100 metres, as the car comes to a stop before exploding into flames.

Distressed punters run to free the driver from the flaming vehicle, and thankfully they make a safe escape.

Australian outlet 10 Daily News reported the driver, 30-year-old Samual Montesalvo, was convicted of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and subsuqently fined $1000 and disqualified from driving for six months.

Although the terrifying incident took place back in April 2018, Queensland Police have gone public with the footage to warn Australians about the dangers of 'burnout' gender reveal parties.

The practice has become popular all over Aussie, with 7 News reporting failed parties have taken place in both South Australia and Sydney within the last year.

A similar incident occurred in the US in 2018 and sparked an Arizona wildfire. 

According to CNN, off-duty Border Patrol agent Dennis Dickey started a fire when he shot a target reading "Boy", which was packed with the highly explosive Tannerite.

The target released blue smoke, but engulfed the surrounding bush. The flames reportedly spread to the Coronado National Forest and became the destructive Sawmill Fire. 

Dickey pled guilty to a misdemeanour violation and was sentenced to five years' probation and ordered to pay NZ$320,070.
