One man's plan is about to backfire, quite literally.

Video shows him a man getting out of a white minivan, putting something down and catching fire.

Police in Kentucky say the man threw a few Molotov cocktails at the business, but he missed the second time. The liquid splashed back. He ran off and lost a shoe.

But even after that experience, police say the arson suspect didn't stop there. They say he grabbed another bottle of fuel and poured it out by a barbershop. The man and a woman then left in the minivan.

Police are still searching for the pair.
