You probably can't leap over this sixfoot homemade Piranha Plant nor should you try

We’d probably say something like, “I always thought it would be cool to build a giant fire breathing piranha plant,” and then promptly forget about following through. Also, hey, that sounds dangerous! Hack-a-day‘s Caleb Craft, however, doesn’t allow silly things like fear of seared human flesh get between him and his dreams. (This is the same man who created an incredible Portal gun, in case you forgot the name.)

Craft created a six-foot tall, fire-breathing “piranha plant” — also known as “that bastard plant hiding in Super Mario World‘s pipes” — using PVC pipe, butane and a whole mess of other materials. The results are — well, we can think of a variety of adjectives that’d fit perfectly well here, but you’ll likely come up with a few of your own after watching the video of it in action below the break.
