This deep fried turkey disaster video is only funny because nobody got hurt. But otherwise we can't help but say "Dude! What were you thinking?!"
However, after you take a moment to stop being mad at the guy (not only for clearly ruining an expensive turkey but for almost setting the entire neighborhood on fire), this fried turkey disaster is actually pretty funny.
This homemade turkey fryer was clearly not put together properly...but the thing is most of the homemade ones never are (you can check out the results in our Thanksgiving Fails gallery).
Why are people so obsessed with deep frying a turkey when the chances of having a deep fried turkey disaster are pretty high. I mean, if you want one that bad may we suggest buying your turkey already fried? That way you can leave it to the professionals (except if you scroll through that Thanksgiving Fails gallery above you'll notice not even the fire department can get it right!).
But we do have some sympathy for this guy, and especially his wife who is filming the video. We're glad she at least had a sense of humor about the whole thing, even if the deep fried turkey disaster almost ruined their Thanksgiving.
