a Japanese commenter: "I think i'll show this video to my kids as an example of what not to do." :p
the youtube comments are fairly tame. he's probably getting burned in 4 chan for his lack of common sense.

I think that's the least of his worries...

i don't understand this video. how would you not realize the huge fire burning your back. it's quite a distinctive feeling.

Poor guy, he underestimated how quickly fires can go out of control. Once it hits a certain point bowls of water simply won't help. He just made things worse with the blanket, fanning the flames. After he left the first time it was over unless he came back with a fire extinguisher.

Back when I smoked I had a small garbage can fire that I put out by throwing the whole thing in the shower. It's easy to panic in those situations, and most people don't have the experience to know when it's too late.

Maybe in addition to not smoking in bed you shouldn't smoke while using the computer

or smoke near flammable materials for that matter.

Jeez. I would have flipped over the wooden table in the back of the room and placed it directly atop the fire. The wood is thick enough to not immediately ignite and become a blaze, and it would probably resist long enough to snuff out the flames.

He had plenty of time to simply exit the room and get a wet towel or some water, too. At about 6:00, the fire has become unmanageable. The cardboard left near it didn't help...

The high pitched voice makes it funny lol

Sounds like a calm child full of amazement.

Why the fuck did he do everything to fule the fire... He could've easily gotten it burned out if he put something over it so it couldn't get air. Something wet will help a long way in those situations

What's up with that weird voice during the video? Is that a computer, or a human?

a program that reads the comments aloud. basically saying "behind you!", "call 119" (fire dept) and "you shouldn't leave your futon like that"

It's his computer's voice to text program and people are telling him, well, "Shit's on fire"

That voice thing just made it even more amusing. I was hoping it would start distorting near the end or something.

It's like he was literally trying to think of what he could put on the flames to fuel the fire even more. And what's even worse is how long he took to bring a thimble full of water each time lol.
