Man Tire Spins Himself into a Fiery Mess and a Driving Ban

QUEENSLAND / AUSTRALIA — According to the Washington Post, a 29-year-old man from the town of Nerang, Australia was convicted after his vehicle exploded into a fiery blue mess during a gender reveal party on Australia's Gold Coast.

In what was supposed to be a celebratory event of revealing the gender of one's child using colored tire smoke, the car caught fire during a dramatic burnout.

The man stopped in the middle of the road and began spinning the car's wheels.

Small puffs of color began wafting from the tires before rupturing into a plume of blue smoke.

The car then caught fire — spectacularly.

According to The Guardian, burnouts, caused by spinning the wheels of a stationary car to produce large plumes of tire smoke are a recent popular method of revealing the gender of one's baby.


Hilton Buckley of Queensland Police Service told 7 News Brisbane, "I know people like to do unique things for gender reveals these days, but use a bit of common sense." The incident took place last year and according to police, the driver was convicted on one count of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

He was charged a $1,000 fine and banned from driving for six months.

The video of the burnout was released Tuesday to local media outlets, who filed a request for the footage after the court case concluded last year.
