Web Video / Arson Sam

Arson Sam is a series on YouTube that depicts Fireman Sam as an evil arsonist (whose hobby is to set things on fire) rather than a friendly firefighter. Also, episode clips are played backwards with subtitles added, to make it look like the fire brigade is actually doing the opposite of what they should normally do. And the lyrics to the theme tune are altered.

This series provides examples of the following:

  • Cut His Heart Out with a Spoon: An example of it occurs in Episode 5:
    Pelvis Weekly: So she said, "burn my family ever again, and I'll drown you in a tub of cheese".
  • Feathered Fiend: Arson Crow.
  • Hot Pursuit: In one episode, Sam and the gang find out that one of the members, Mike Flood, is an undercover cop. Just then, police cars arrive and a high speed chase ensues.
  • Pyro Maniac: This is the main plot of the series. Fireman Sam, along with the whole fire brigade, start fires rather than fight them. As a result, the police are usually on the lookout for them.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: After the high speed chase, the gang, led by Station Officer Steele, threaten to use a mega bomb on the police force unless they surrender. They refuse. The bomb is detonated.
