As of May 20th, 2011, Action Factory can add Jimmy Kimmel to the list with Nick Cage, Alfred Molina, and a hand full of other stars that the major studios and insurance companies have trusted to allow Action Factory to light on fire. Action Factory was contacted to create “Bob’s Blend” fire gel. Science Bob is a repeating guest on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. As “friends” of Science Bob, Action Factory designed and oversaw a gel specifically for Bob. This gel allowed Bob to “Dip and drip” Jimmy Kimmel, then light his arm on fire for about 11 seconds before hitting him with a Co2 fire extinguisher. Take a look at Bob’s YouTube link here to see the clip of Jimmy’s show.
