Video: Rapper Dave Plays a Solo on a Flamethrowing Guitar at the BRIT Awards


So on the one hand, last night’s BRIT Awards included Ed Sheeran and Bring Me The Horizon’s pretty terrible jam of “Bad Habits.” BUT! It also had rapper Dave firing off a gigantic flamethrower from his guitar while playing a solo on it. And THAT is fucking metal.

Full disclosure, we do not know anything about Dave or his music. According to his Wikipedia, he is a British rapper from Brixton. We also don’t know how seasoned he is at the guitar, so some of you guitar nerds can clarify whether his technique is fine or wack. We WILL say that the solo he plays, though not perfect, is pretty damn good, and the fact that he gets to play it while shooting a 15-foot jet of flame across stage is pretty fucking killer. We wish events like these would involve fewer nu-metal breakdancers and more flamethrowing instruments.
