Watch Lou Bega Cop A Face Full Of Fire During ‘Mambo No. 5’ Performance

Footage has emerged of German artist Lou Bega copping a face full of fire while performing his hit song ‘Mambo No. Fire 5′ during a performance in Hungary.

While the incident actually occurred back in May, the internet has only now caught on to the video, which was filmed by an audience member at the Total Dance Fesztivál Cabrio event in Budapest.

The video shows Bega (real name David Lubega) singing his hit song before inadvertently looking down the barrel of a pyrotechnic device, before it shoots a ball of fire at his face.

The singer grabs his head, but appears to have escaped unharmed, continuing the performance with only a bruised ego.
