Yup.. another "don't do this at home, better pay a professional" commercial.
I have been using anti-seize on mine since my 1981 RX-7 required it... and
have never had a problem, of course you have to realize that you don't
use too much! Interestingly, my jar of anti-seize looks identical to his,
the destroyed brush end!
Too much oozing down the threads? My guess is the ham-fisted owner got it on
the insulator... the miss-fire fouled the plug.

Subject: Re: [Tigers] Anti-Seize on Spark Plugs
Jay, well done, but he should have emphasized that anti-seize is
necessary on dissimilar metals, like an steel spark plug and an alum
head, which is very common today. I would have liked him to show how to
apply the right amount of anti-seize, because all of his very good
explanations would lead some people to not apply that at all.
Also the spark plug mnf not recommending anti-seize is beyond me. Who
will pay for the seized plugs to be removed from alum heads, especially
with plugs that have a very long life, ie 30K-60K miles.
Over all very good but needed some additional explanation and
demonstration of proper anti-seize application.
