Queensland Police have released a video of a gender reveal gone wrong in a bid to discourage others from doing something similar.

A car caught fire when it was allegedly used to perform a burnout which revealed the gender of a baby in April last year.

The incident was captured by a drone which was allegedly launched by the 29-year-old driver.

The video shows a blue plume of smoke coming from the Holden’s back wheels before it burst into flames.

The driver was later arrested and charged with the dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
