"Well Chung", Way to Die #252, is the fifth death to be featured on "Tweets from the Dead", which aired on March 26, 2012.
Wang-Chung was a street-side con artist, but not just any merchants... he was a black market merchant. Wang Chung had a small street-side bazaar where you could buy anything from protected animal organs to illegal weapons. The fact that a criminal like this could sell illegal goods in public was astonishing. One day, while making a pirated DVD sale, he gets a tip that the FBI agent is coming after him....right now. He immediately closes his bazaar and hastily hides in his camp-trailer, where he hides illegal fireworks. sure enough, the FBI was investigating his street-corner. An hour later, he puts his lit cigarette in his hand and then puts it on a 6-pack of canned beverages. It falls off and lands on the fuse of a firecracker. A moment later...all hell breaks loose inside the small trailer. The initial explosion of the firework set off a huge, fiery, loud chain-reaction... with Wang-Chung crammed inside. Fireworks, firecrackers, bottle rockets, sparklers, popper-snappers and more all shoot everywhere in all directions, causing a catastrophic, forceful blast wave of blazing fire that no human could survive. When the fireworks end, an agent opens the door, and it is revealed that Wang-Chung died in a defining, blazing, inferno within a 6-5 foot trailer, but at least he went out with a bang and then blackened.
- A similar incident happened on Tru-TV, where a bunch of partiers accidentally ignited a pile of fireworks in a boat, but those where legal fireworks.
- The character might be named after the new wave band Wang Chung.
- Wang Bang (Spike TV website)
