Ticking sound from engine

Hey folks so today i noticed a ticking sound coming from the engine and i put a video of it onto youtube. The sound is only there under acceleration. Im gonna try and fix it this asap so the car doesn't break down on me while driving. Thanks

Update

Just checked spark plug #7 and the coil pack already smelled like straight burned gasoline, inside the spark plug hole was a bunch of dirt so i cleaned that out before i took the spark plug out. Once i took the spark plug out half the threads on the repair sleeve were all gunked up with dirt so i cleaned those threads put the whole thing back together and now no more ticking sound.

That'll do it, mine was ticking also before the plug blew out. Glad you got it figured out
