Generally at a birthday party you are supposed to blow out the candles — not have to blow out your own hair. But that’s exactly what DJ Skrillex had to do Tuseday night (Jan. 15) at his birthday party in Los Angeles.

The above video (via TMZ) shows the crowd serenading the DJ and him going in to blow out all of his candles (seriously, there are a lot, that cake is like an inferno) and then Skrillex leaps back away from the cake, putting out a small flame on a piece of his hair. Whoops.

Skrillex, real name Sonny Moore, was celebrating his 25th birthday, complete with a turntable-shaped cake. One of the DJ’s most recent projects was a cameo and a song in the animated movie “Wreck-It Ralph.”
