C'mon, man.

On Wednesday, a video uploaded to YouTube showed that a spectator tried to put out the Rio Olympic torch with a fire extinguisher as the relay went through Joinville, Brazil.

It didn't work.

The guy was immediately put in a chokehold by security, and the flame kept on burning as it was transferred to another runner.
