VIDEO: Rocketman Puts Jet Engine Behind Grandmother’s Lawn Chair

If you’ve just been watching cats playing piano on YouTube, then you’re missing out on a whole world of fun.

Robert Maddox, aka Rocketman, started his own channel four years ago, where the aging daredevil shows off his jet-powered inventions. From skateboards to go-karts to coffin cars, this mad scientist/speed demon will seemingly put flaming propulsion behind anything.

In his latest vid, Maddox decides to take his grandmother’s 1960s lawn chair, strap a high-powered rocket to the back, and blow down the highway like he’s running from a fleet of cops.

“It’s a blast!” Maddox says. “You don’t have to make super expensive things to have a lot of fun.”

No doubt, Rocketman, no doubt.
