A YouTube video showing what happens when a single match is lit from a square-shaped platform of 6,000 matches has gone viral since it was first posted last week.
The video, which was uploaded to the HTD YouTube channel on March 14 and has been viewed more than 8.2 million times, includes the captions, “6000 Match Chain Reaction – Amazing Fire Domino!!!” The clip begins with someone lighting the first match before stepping back as the flames slowly spread outwards and sweep across the 6,000-match formation.
The video, which is 14 minutes and 19 seconds long, covers the entire journey as the matches burst into flames before slowly dying out, one-by-one, until all that is left is a thick clump of limp, blackened matches.
Watch the entire video below.
