BRAINLESS guests at a posh wedding set fire to their hair in a high-risk drinking game.
The “Hooray Henrys” took turns pouring sambuca over their heads before lighting it and then downing shots as flames licked their locks.
Footage shared online sparked fears boozers could be permanently scarred by copying them.
Drink charities also blasted the antics of the six men.
They were filmed in smart waistcoats and ties on a patio at a lavish-looking venue as wedding disco music played inside. One can be seen downing spirits as flames ignite his brown hair.
After slurping back his drink, he leans his blazing head toward a pal whose hair is also soaked with the flammable liqueur.
His hair then ignites too and, as partygoers cheer, he takes his turn in downing a shot. He panics and thrashes his head but is ordered to light up another friend’s hair before dousing his.
‘URGH, THE SMELL’
A pal urges: “Light it first!”. And another well-heeled guest shouts: “Urgh, the smell.”
One of the six stands to attention while his head is ablaze and toasts “The Queen!” before necking his drink. Pals throw glasses of water over each other to help extinguish the flames.
One man quips: “Joe did it very smoothly there.”
The clip is understood to have first been shared among bankers in the City of London, where some of those who took part are believed to work.
A source told The Sun: “These Hooray Henrys are thick morons.
“They should realise the risk to themselves and others by literally playing with fire.

“Drinkers playing this could easily be engulfed with flames and suffer life-changing injuries.”
Drinkaware slammed the game as “seriously dangerous”.
Previously, drinkers have suffered horrific burns from flaming sambuca cocktails.
