The first thirty seconds of Secret Music’s new video for “Ghost In the Graveyard” are innocent enough– a middle-aged suburban man sitting in bed with his wife watching corny infomercials. It’s a classic story of suburban alienation, right? Well, not when the man in question is actually Ted Batchelor, the Guinness World Record holder for longest body-burn. You can probably guess what happens next, and it’s entirely awesome, complete with fireworks, impressive desert scenery, and lots of pyrotechnical goodness, all set to the band’s thumping, rowdy spring anthem.
It gives Spike Jonze’s iconic “Souther California” video a run for its flaming money. The video is below, and kids, please, don’t try this at home!
