Building An Anti-Firework Steel Suit

Have you ever watched fireworks with a cool lemonade in your hand and thought to yourself: "Wouldn't it it be awesome to stand in the middle of that fire and gunpowder, suffer some disfiguring burns and excruciating pain, just to get a better view?" Yeah, neither have we. 

And then there's the innovators, such as Mr. Colin Furze (the same genius that built a pair of magnet shoes to walk on the ceiling), who actually want that better view and realize they have to build a safety suit. Using steel, he constructs a giant tin man suit that looks like he belongs in a video game as an evil twin of everyone's favorite childhood hero, Gumby (see below if you missed out).
