Good things happen when you don't drink but do fire lasers.

Last time we checked in on the antics of Scott Stevenson (aka WorldScott), he was vaporizing a row of 100 balloons with a Spyder Krypton laser.

He's been at it again, this time firing the green-light 100mW Krypton at some flash paper atop a bottle full of alcohol.

The result is spectacular, but it looks even better when the laser ignites the contents of 10 bottles in a row.

The burning flash paper sets off a jet of fire from the bottles, as well as what looks like a blue plasma bubble expanding downwards.

The fires create unusual squeaking noises that sound like vinyl records being scratched by a turntable needle.

Check out the wild video below, but don't try this at your local bar.
