These guys take the word 'redneck' to the next level.

These guys took a few raw chemicals (water and calcium carbide) and used them to send these 55 gallon drums soaring into the air. Mixing the two chemicals (on of which is just water) together actually creates Acetylene which is extremely flammable.

In true redneck style, they had a contest to see who could launch their drum higher into the air. The result is what you see in the video, and I'm willing to be a trip to the emergency room at some point.
