Message from my girlfriend: "This video is of my uncle, and posted by my boyfriend. I just want to clarify, the burning of the Icelandic flag is symbolic for saying goodbye to my grandfather. He was a proud descendant of Icelandic immigrants, so when he died last month we burned the flag to "say goodbye" and to retire his flag. When you retire a flag in the U.S. you are supposed to burn it. We were following the tradition. The gas was just because of excessive rain making it hard to lite. We are not rednecks."
This is an edited version of the original epic bonfire fail. I am the original uploader/owner of the video.
