No rice to throw for the couple: The pyromaniac newlyweds literally burst into flames of glory after setting themselves on fire to end their wedding ceremony. A video of wedding-related fireworks currently boasts more than 15.2 million viral views online as of Friday afternoon.
“Getting out of their wedding makes sparklers boring,” reads the caption of the fully lit clip, which was posted Monday by wedding DJ Russ Powell.
The lovebirds are Gabe Jessop and Amber Mitchell, 42-year-old stunt doubles who work on TV and film sets like “Yellowstone” and “Hereditary,” so they decided to pay tribute to their shared career during their marriage.
However, very few viewers could prepare for the stunt, which features flames that practically spark a gender-reveal party, Jam Press reported.
The video of the knot-frying ceremony – titled “When Stunt People Get Married” – begins traditionally enough, with the bride and groom standing side by side.
However, the incident takes a smoldering turn after a man ignites Mitchell’s bouquet with a large incendiary device, after which they go up in “Ghost Rider” to blaze a la Nick Cage and Sam Elliott. .
The twin flames then walk down the aisle holding hands, while guests cheer in the background, seemingly dissatisfied with the fact that they are both on fire.
The fiery footage ends with Jessop and Michelle as a wedding attendant taking hot action with a fire extinguisher.
The display of burning passion got the comment section excited with an impressed TikToker saying, “Hey! Totally burnt out to tie the knot.”
“Ngl… your marriage will be in the top 10 for life,” endorsed DJ Russ Powell in the comments.
“If my wedding isn’t going to happen in such a light, I’m going to change that,” said another awkward commenter.
“I know the photographer was tense,” joked one viewer, while another joked about a scenario where the cameraman didn’t capture the moment, typing: “Photographer: ‘Can we run again’ I forgot to take off the lens[cap], ,
Others compared the scene to Jennifer Lawrence’s flame-festoon outfit from “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
However, some concerned commentators wondered whether the couple was okay after the fireworks.
“A lot of things in this video could have killed him,” said one social media schoolboy.
“Please tell me the hair was safe,” said another, to which DJ Russ Powell replied: “They both had anti-burn gel in their hair and face, then a wig over it.” He was also reportedly wearing fireproof clothing, Newsweek reports.
The DJ also posted a disclaimer informing the audience that the newlyweds are “trained professionals” and not “try this at home”.
