There is tiny bubbles of hydrogen in the water from the batteries' electrolysis.

When will people learn?
Water almost doesn't lead electricity at all. Saltwater does fine, but not tap water as he's using in this video.
Besides, two AA batteries gives out enormously small DC current, which won't make enough H2 (Hydrogen2) and O (Oxygen) separate for such a flame.
Consider the fact that batteries has material (both liquid and hard) that does burn?
And that they maybe leaked out into the water, surfaced and caught on fire?

Why not just mix water and alcohol and then claim that the "water" burns?

Uhm, water doesn't need salt to conduct. Any ions in the water will do, this can be anything from salt to acid to the minerals that are commonly found in tap water.
