If he's Smokey. Where's the Bandit?

I'd turn him in for a thousand bucks

Where did he get an accelerant at a gas station?

For some reason i skipped over the paragraph where they gave his name and thought it was pretty funny the news outlet had decided to start nicknaming the guy 'Bumpers.'

A crucial detail for the article might be *how much* on-fire this guy set himself (maybe it was in the video?).  They still haven't found him, so if he set himself just a little on-fire, like his sleeve was in flames and he whipped off a jacket and ran away, then that makes sense.  If he was Pink Floyd 'Wish Your Were Here' on-fire and still hasn't been found, then he probably died of an infection or shock or something somewhere.

Currently sitting at the drive-in waiting for the new Bill and Ted to start, so I'm getting a kick.

I guess you could watch the video and see him set alight up his pant leg into his crotch. But I guess it's cooler to do what you did.

I guess you could consider that some people aren't always on machine or in a place where they can watch a/v clips.  But I guess it's cooler to do what you did.

It really wasn't.  Totally worth a 30 year wait.  It was nice to see a dumb fun movie that I hadn't already seen 15 times.  The double-feature was going to be Unhinged.  I read the blurb and couldn't understand why anyone would want to watch that after the happiest movie of the year.

It basically read as "Russel Crowe stars in 'An Average News Cycle'".

Was he wearing the saffron robes?
