The World's Dumbest Arsonist? Police Release Video of Man Who Set Fire to TTC Bus

In today's Morning Brew, we mentioned a bizarre story about a guy who set fire to the back of a TTC bus. He did it in full view of a number of witnesses and a surveillance camera. He then apparently hailed a Beck taxi in order to flee the scene. Basically, he did everything but leave his wallet and scribble his name and social insurance number on the sidewalk outside.

Anyway, it doesn't look like it should be too much of a challenge to track him down, or successfully press charges. A few hours ago the Toronto Police released a copy of the surveillance video. Watch it below.
