Calling Johnny Knoxville: a few jackasses from Ottawa just stole your bit.

Last March, Constance Bay, Ont.'s Andy Stewart taped some roman candles to a drone with two friends, then chased them with it as it shot out fireworks over a frozen lake, The Ottawa Citizen reported.

A video of the stunt was posted to YouTube the same month, but it started trending this week after it was picked up by the U.K.'s Metro newspaper.

It has drawn almost 900,000 views.

"They were down for it," Stewart said of his friends, in an interview with the Citizen.

"We mess around with fireworks all the time, roman candle fights and stuff like that, so we're not opposed to being shot at by roman candles."

It's not the first time someone has attempted this.

A video showing a similar stunt was posted to YouTube last year with the title, "COD: Call of Drone."

Another video posted last year rather cleverly added Richard Wagner's "Ride of the Valkyries" to its soundtrack, just like in the helicopter scene from "Apocalypse Now."

Sadly, no jackasses were fired upon in that one.
