The knucklehead in this story was trying for a version of what is depicted in the above photo. Oh, and yes, alcohol was involved.
“According to an investigator’s report, the victim had combined gunpowder, match heads and gasoline and filled the muffler with this combination. He donned a plastic garbage bag as a cape and a motorcycle helmet. He strapped the muffler/pipe device to his back. He asked another person to light a wick and then began to sled down a hill. At some point during the ride, the device exploded.”
