Decorate a drunken friend, REALLY, really drunk!
Neat: the candle thing. Works really great then burning for 10 minutes and the guy shakes them into his face when waking up. Better even: spice up the effect with some rum filled into the transparent plastic cups left and right of that one candle.
This is what we call effective waking – the guy on flames will really toss him out of focus. Maybe he’ll even be sober in a flash (literally).
Since this is obviously happening in a tent there is even a nice potential for an even bigger bang. So why not spill the rest of the rum onto the tent?
One thing you might want to prepare for, other than the two blokes in the picture here: clear an escape route. You might want to be outta there REAL FAST!
And you should really consider wearing protective gear for the better part of the remaining year.
