Watch This Dude Tear His Socks Off with a Rocket Launcher

Taking your socks off -- whether with your hands or sliding them off with your feet -- is a necessary part of your day. Taking your socks off by firing a freaking rocket launcher, however, is absolutely 100% unnecessary. It's also the coolest damn thing you'll see all day, thanks to a new video trending on YouTube.

In the one-minute video, self-described "garage inventor" and all-around danger seeker Colin Furze, fires an improvised rocket launcher from the back of a pickup truck -- with the projectile attached to the socks he's wearing. Watch as he says, "See ya later, socks!", pulls the trigger, and laughs hysterically when his socks flly clean off his feet. The video even shows the successful sock removal from several angles, but it's Furze's maniacally joyful laugh that makes the insane stunt worth watching.

Hopefully this goes without saying, but don't even think about trying this at home, folks.
