Human Fuse Ignites Down the Strip

 

Stunts are nothing new to the Las Vegas Strip, but this one might just set itself apart.

At 8 pm Wednesday, Brian Miser - the “Human Fuse “ - will be lighting himself on fire and shooting himself more than 100 feet from a giant crossbow right on the Strip. The event will be taking place at Las Vegas Boulevard and Harmon Avenue between Harley Davidson Cafe and CityCenter.

This is only the second time that Miser has performed this act outside. The first time was on the Late Show with David Letterman, as seen in the attached video.

The stunt is in preview of the Fully Charged Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus which takes place Thursday through Sunday at the Thomas & Mack Center.
