Looks like smoke to me. Doesn't look like a sprinkler system to me.

Such a shame.

I heard he was a good boy.

Was about to get his life together.

And go to college.

To be an engineer.

or doctor.

Yep, smoke! I have been under sprinkler systems for real when they let go and that is not what it is! In both cases there is no water on the floor, no one is wet and that camera would barely be able to see through the amount of water put down!
That second video is kinda crazy! Guy seems to be on the phone the whole time and just kinda leisurely walking around till he smokes the dude! Good on him but crazy

LOL reminds me of this story.

Forward to 0:45 seconds for the mandatory "he was a good boy", then forward to 1:45 for the classic, "how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school....."



ummmmm, how about GET A JOB.

That is smoke. notice the bad guy isn't wet, there are no puddles etc. common sprinklers are temperature activated by little galls vials.
