So 5 Seconds of Summer is like One Direction's less successful little brother. Unless you're 14, you probably only know them from "She Looks So Perfect" and probably thought that was a One Direction song. Anyway, the band was performing in London and their guitarist was doing that weird skip-walk thing that white boys who can't dance do to get "pumped up," and he got way too close to the fire torch. Sidebar: why does a boy band marketed towards middle school girls need fire torches in their act?
Basically, he ran into the flame and caught on fire. The video is fairly graphic unless you've seen someone get their upper lip waxed. This kid literally set himself on fire rather than continue performing the concert, which is probably the dream come true for every parent sitting in the audience..
