Twenty-one Cleveland residents set themselves on fire at a restaurant on Saturday to set the Guinness World Record for the most people performing full body burns.

The participants wore special fireproof gel suits to protect themselves from the heat. A 1,500-strong crowd started to count down and the lined up daredevils were set on fire by people holding torches.

The stunt went on for almost thirty-two seconds near the Cuyahoga River, which is reportedly just as flammable as gasoline.

Once the record was achieved, the “burners” stopped, dropped and rolled on the ground and the fire was extinguished.

The previous record was held by a group from South Russell, Ohio when 17 people were simultaneously set on fire set in 2009.
