This almost brings back memories of when Michael Jackson's hair caught fire during the filming of the Pepsi commercial, but this is actually worse, and it's not part of the magician's act!

You always have to wonder if these things are a setup or not.  It certainly would be great for Wayne Houchin's career (being a magician), if it turned out to be a trick, because this video from the Dominican Republic has gone viral.  His career would certainly be on fire (yes, Levack, the punoff continues) .

Some consider this a prank  others considered it an attack by the host of the show.  Some allegedly consider the magician "evil" according to the report and this was a way to release the evil spirits.

Very strange.  Don't try this at home!
