Police and the MTA in New York City are saying a new viral video is the latest sign of urban decay.

In the video, a man is seen on top of an ice cream truck before he hops onto a city bus. In his hand, a flamethrower.

Next, he starts to fire the flamethrower in the air. As the excess fuel falls from the gun, it immediately catches fire again on top of the bus. After spraying it in the air and getting some cheers, he sprays the ground behind the bus before he jumps off of the bus onto the ground.

The incident happened around 5:30pm on November 8th.

Shooting the flamethrower was part of the shooting of a music video NYC rapper Dupree G.O.D. created as a tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan.

After the incident, he invited bystanders to the corner of the intersection for ice cream, champagne and t-shirts.
