A fire dancer turned the heat up on his performance by lighting a cigarette in an audience member’s mouth.
Teacher Maksim Zhmuydin, 27, was hanging out with his wife in a beach restaurant in Nha Trang, Vietnam, enjoying that evening’s entertainment.
Maksim held the cigarette out in his hand to get the dancer’s attention, and after approaching closer the dancer spun her props inches away from Maksim’s face.
With the cigarette clamped in his lips, it was quickly lit and the young man was finally able to enjoy his smoke.
Maksim said: “The fire dancer had lit up several cigarettes with her twirlers as she was preparing for a show.
“Suddenly she came close to us and I told my wife I would do it too.
“The fire got near my face, but after it I felt like a boss.”
