Lighting a Match in Slow Motion

This clip is filmed at 2000 frames a second and shows an up-close, slo-mo view of a match being lit. The match head takes two minutes to fully ignite, check it out below.

I wonder what would happen if a million match heads were lit up? The Mythbusters have been there, exploded that. It was part of their YouTube special in 2009. You can find that video after the jump.
