    That's the most excitement to happen between his legs for a long time to come.

    I bet that was fun.

    It almost appears that the cylinder (now an unguided missile) passed through the motorcycle wheel. I had to watch it several times and finally pause it to see more closely that it actually just barely misses the wheel altogether.

    The guy in the red shirt was fortunate enough to have moved just prior to launch. Looks like it missed everything before impacting just below the camera angle, as the gas finally (see the gas stream) started to finish releasing. All lucky misses, no motorbikes were injured in the making of this film, but the cinder block wall (presumably) will never be the same.

    I'd bet they were removing the cylinders valve so they could safely cut it up for scrap, no thought it might still be full though...
