Some Guy Decided To Put On A Homemade Tinfoil Suit And Visit Hell

Bottom-right. Yeah. That’s a dude.

Okay, so maybe Geoff Mackley didn’t literally visit Hades, but he did the next best thing. He and a couple buddies put together a homemade heat-resistant suit and went and hung out beside Vanuata’s famed Marum volcano lava lake for around 40-minutes. How long could a person survive so close to the lava lake without a specialized suit? Oh, around six seconds.

Needless to say, this footage is kind of f–king insane. Hit the jump to check it out…

Here’s the money footage of Geoff hanging out right next to the hell lake.

Hit the second page for a longer video that details the rather treacherous journey Geoff and his friends went on to reach the lake. Also, footage of him very close to the lake without his heat suit on.

So yeah, forget The Hobbit — it’s not going to have anything on this s–t.
