He really wanted to ring in the new year in a big way.

A prominent Ukrainian YouTuber placed 10,000 sparkler sticks inside a pot, took it to a remote area and set fire to it.

The result? An incredible “broad and narrow” flame shooting approximately 30-40 feet into the sky.

The sparks also set fire to the grass immediately surrounding the area, which was promptly put out by a fire extinguisher. The YouTuber, however, said extinguishing the fire inside the pot was “not so simple” and video of him pouring water over the flame seemed to have no real effect.
