Do not attempt: Mixing alcohol with a Krypton laser

Good things happen when you don’t drink but do fire lasers.
He’s been at it again, this time firing the green-light 100mW Krypton at some flash paper atop a bottle full of alcohol.
The result is spectacular, but it looks even better when the laser ignites the contents of 10 bottles in a row.
The burning flash paper sets off a jet of fire from the bottles, as well as what looks like a blue plasma bubble expanding downwards.
The fires create unusual squeaking noises that sound like vinyl records being scratched by a turntable needle.
Check out the wild video below, but don’t try this at your local bar.
