It’s even a tradition in belgium that every belgian Tv-channel plays this movie during Christmas. So we have to do something from this movie, it’s a must!

That’s why we decided to recreate the scene where harry the burglar tries to break in and gets his head set on fire. It’s one of the iconic scenes from the movie and they even did it in the sequel. This effect is of course done in post production. Because setting a persons head on fire isn’t the best idea. Hell, using fire in general isn’t a good idea. That’s why we strongly advice you not to do anything with fire at home. We did it for you in safe in enviroment, so that you didn’t have to.

You guys are also probably wondering when we are doing a 1 million Celebration video. Well we are working on it. We are doing it a little bit different then last time with 500k. We noticed that some of you were disappointed with not winning last time. This time we want to do something for everyone, so that everyone can be happy. But that’s not all. We also want to do something for charity and give back to the ones who really need it. But I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so you have to wait for the announcement video. Jordy will then explain everything in detail.
