‘pyro goes way beyond magic and puts an unexplainable, supernatural power in your hands. I don’t leave home without it and am constantly finding excuses to shoot fireballs from my empty hands,’ said daniel madison.

after over two years of refinements and the total of seven prototypes, wilber was able to perfect the gadget and make it available for the market. in a condition of purchase, consumers must watch the ‘pyro fireshooter’ instructional in its entirety, before they can operate the unit. flash packs are the supplements needed to reload the four separate chambers and make the owner appear like a superhero.

  • So what’s the point? Just for LOLs?

    I’m reminded of the quote by George Carlin, “Think for a moment about the concept of the flamethrower. What this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, “Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I’m way to far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them.”

  • Well that was 2 years well spent . . .
