After the jump, you can see a video of a naked model’s hair catching on fire while she sits in a bathtub at Diddy’s album release party (via BuzzFeed, Vulture, Dlisted, 50Cent.livejournal.com, TheDailyWhat, and RealTalkNY). It’s basically our generation’s Clay Duke tape, I’m sure. Oh, and it is pretty safe for work because the footage is grainy and the model is sitting in a deep soaking tub (maybe a Kohler? Not sure! None of the hip hop blogs will tell me whether or not the soaking tub at Diddy’s album release party was a Kohler or not) so it’s really just a matter of whether or not you WANT to watch it. Ask yourself this question: “do I want to watch a model’s hair catch on fire as she soaks in a tub (possibly Kohler) at Diddy’s album release party while Kevin Hart babbles nonsense into a microphone–and another dude casually throws rose petals into the tub for some reason, like, dude, really? Rose petals? Did you just watch Red Shoe Diaries or something? Take it easy, this is an album release party on Ustream and that woman was hired to sit there–or don’t I?” And then based on how you answer that question, watch the video or do not watch the video. That’s the best I can offer.

Yup. Diddy album release party, model, soaking tub, hair, fire, microphone, rose petals. As described. A+++ would do business with seller again.

  1. Boom. Roasted.

    (I’m sorry.)

  2. Dirty Ditty Funny!

  3. I am so glad Gabe posted this video because, as with the Clay Duke tape, I want to be CHALLENGED when I come to videogum. I certainly don’t come here for puppy and Keenan videos and funny quips from awesome internet friends. I want clips of “Hard to Watch” by Manipulate and then some good solid argument for 150 comments. J/K you guys!

    • Ahem. Hard to Watch is the Hollywood, sell-out adaptation of the powerful Stone Cold Bummer by Manipulate. Don’t bring his authenticity down by claiming he wrote the movie.

    • Oh, shut up.

      • Ha!

        I was out of the country for a few days, and didn’t know about that Comment Thread from Hell until just about 1 minute ago, and I’m glad. Even if some of the dissent found it’s mark (and maybe it did on a couple of points), I don’t generally like seriousgum discussions. They usually involve a lot of misplaced bitterness over blog commenting*, which is always a little embarrassing to watch.

        Now bring me the girl with the fiery mane!

        *all bitterness over blog commenting is misplaced

    • I disagree with your .gif! Perpetual motion is the devil’s motion!

      (give me a break, ok, I am unused to starting arguments. even fake online arguments.)

      • I thought the devil’s motion was something else entirely…

        • Some call it smangin’.

        • Well played. Also, I love being in the music world! 40 people work to make a set of songs that sound quite a bit like other popular songs, and then you try to sell other people this “just different enough product” by paying attractive young people to sit around in a fancy setting in little to no clothing.

          Even though I am the worst (graduate student), I find my job entertaining.

    • The tragedy of this gif is that that dog will never be able to right itself.

      Thursday ruined. *drops mic*

      • On the contrary, I find this gif quite fulfilling because I feel it gives me the agency to go and help the adorable little puppy to its feet. Also the fact that until I get there, he’s just going to be rocking like that so he actually NEEDS me to go right him.

    • This “teacherman” has an awfully glib and dour spin on our online relations.

    Not really, TBH. But thanks for the option? Yes. Thanks for the option.

    I will however re-watch the kitten hugging a teddy bear.

  5. Wait, why wasn’t I invited? Not cool, Diddy!

  6. That is my boyfriend, a man who would, seeing a woman in peril, possibly with burns to the scalp, will jump away from her laughing, and making sure it was filmed to be added to her portfolio. I love him and know his priorities are in order; he knows women are strong and able to extinguish themselves if they choose to. Who is he to interfere?

  7. Stop, drop, whip your hair back and forth

  8. I was all like: “Oh no! The candle in front! Be careful!”
    And then surprise attack.

  9. “Oh my god, my hair is on fire. I wish I was submerged in chemical substance that had a high heat of vaporization and is relatively inert, which would make it a good fire extinguishing fluid. Oh, well. Guess I’ll sit here in this water until someone puts it out with their hand.” –Model

    • This would be a lot more tragic if she wasn’t so immediately well disposed to remedy the situation. That being the case, :)

      • I know, right? I watched the video with no sense of trepidation whatsoever, assured that nothing worse than some embarassment and probably a drastic change in hairstyle lay in store for this woman.

        I mean, she was probably sitting in that tub on purpose, just in case her hair caught fire.

  10. Fun fact: Kevin Hart was listed as “Poor Man’s Chris Tucker” on the invite list.

  11. Was this release party sponsored by Pepsi?

  12. Right now your precious “huffington post” has this video on their homepage but more importantly they dare to ask their readers “Jessica Alba or Anne Hathaway?” Oh, huffington post, why do I have to choose!?

  13. This video sucks. The poor women was already being degraded and objectified and she catches fire and no one even helps her. They just want to make sure it was caught on camera. She could have became a burn victim. A BURN VICTIM! As we have discussed failure can be funny when it is something we have all experience and makes us feel human…. not when our head is on fire and people are laughing at us. At least the Clay Duke video was compelling in that it showed how people react in a nightmare situation…and it had an interesting tax discussion (sorry…bad joke).

  14. “Cut the camera off!” is my new response for surprise/terror.

  15. Why don’t you email bathtubfanextreme and see if that’s a Kohler, Gabe?

  16. Why am I not going under water?! Dear God, why am I not going under water?!

  17. I’m glad this is not in smell-o-vision because burnt hair is the worst.
