Man 'Engulfed in Flames' at San Francisco Porn Shop

Man 'Engulfed in Flames' at San Francisco Porn Shop

Uh, yikes. A man was "mysteriously engulfed in flames" at a porn shop (or, "adult bookstore") on Sixth and Mission Streets in San Francisco and has been hospitalized with third-degree burns that are said to be life-threatening. It's unclear how the man caught on fire, but police said he'd been watching videos in a private booth when it happened. Mm-hm. SF Weekly reports that "he somehow set himself ablaze." He then ran out of the front door of the store, catching the attention of, we assume, everyone, including nearby firefighters, who put out the fire.

Enter your hilarious 'spontaneous combustion' joke here. Also: Ouch, and we hope he's okay. But, seriously, America needs to know: What was he watching?

Here's video of a cop discussing the incident.
