After filming a stunt for a comedy special in Denver, Steve-O posted a video of himself in the hospital after being badly burned during an accident involving him pouring rocket fuel on himself. "This could have been SO much worse," he captioned the clip, "and it was AMAZING! Don't worry, Denver, it won't slow me down, see you this Thurs-Sat, show link in bio!"

He still seemed very excited about the dangerous stunt, despite being terribly injured in the process.
