While the onlookers in the clip seem both shocked and impressed by the stunt, netizens were quick to call the video fake. While one user explained that a water pump was used to create the illusion of boiling water, another stated that it was a common magic trick with a simple scientific explanation.

“This is cheating of the highest order..no way that there is no steam being produced or the petals not being disturbed in the pot,” wrote another.

While it is not clear when and where the video was shot, a longer version of the clip was posted on YouTube in 2019 along with a title that read, “Boy sitting in a bowl filled with boiling water with fire under it.”
