This bartender is a fucking idiot not to know that once the drink is lit that's it--no more alcohol goes on top.
Hope the girl was ok and hope she sued the shit out of the establishment and the bartender.

Wow! Apparently in a Moscow bar (sorry, American tort lawyers). The fire enters the bottle just as he begins to tip it. Then, as he tips it farther, the liquid blocks the opening, and expanding combustion gas inside the bottle forces the liquor out in a flaming stream. Here's the whole video of the story on Russian news.
They interview her. At least she wasn't blinded, but her hair looks a bit chopped. I wonder if her big sunglasses and neck scarf are hiding missing eyebrows and burns on her neck. Perhaps a bilingual TCer can tell translate gist of what she says about the experience.
