Aussie Bloke Arrested After Gender Reveal Burnout

Gender reveal parties are taking over the world, with expectant parents digging into cake, popping balloons or lighting candles in order to see whether they're expecting a boy or girl.

Well, one couple decided to take it up a notch by doing a gender reveal in the form of a burnout.

It was happy news for some when then blue smoke erupted into the air.


However it wasn't great when the cops knocked on their door asking questions about a certain video of the stunt going viral.

The blue car in the video was confiscated by police and four people have been charged for the dangerous incident. According to 7 News, officers weren't happy with how close some of the videographers were to the car while the stunt was being performed.

It's not the first gender reveal party to go wrong. One party ended up causing a massive 47,000-acre wildfire that cost AUD$11.2 million (£6.2m).


The fire was started after happy, expectant dad Dennis Dickey and his wife gathered some pals and headed to the Coronado National Forest, Arizona, to find out the gender of their unborn baby.

As part of their reveal celebrations, Dickey was to shoot at a target that was filled with powder. Except, added to the powder was a substance called Tannerite, which is legal, but as we can all now see, is also very explosive.

As sparks flew from the target, the dry grass quickly caught aflame and before any knew what was happening, the whole area was alight.

The incident, which happened in April 2017, resulted in 800 firefighters being called as the fire burned for almost two weeks.
