Gas station lighter prank ends in disaster. Two dozy motorists jokingly pretend to set fire to petrol as they fill up their car only for the prank to unsurprisingly backfire. The foolish stunt was captured on CCTV cameras at a petrol station in Omsk, Russia. The footage shows a man filling up a battered old Lada before his dopey friend pulls out a lighter and jokingly places it next to the highly flammable fuel. Immediately, the patrol pump goes up in flames, with the nozzle spraying fire across the forecourt.
