Man Shoots Lightning from Hands (Wearing Faraday Suit)

No kidding, watch below as 500,000 volts of electricity literally course over a man's body. Of course, he has a little protection: the faraday suit. The video was shot in Austin, Texas, for a German television documentary. Producer Johannes Wiebus is quoted as saying:

"A guy in a chain mail Faraday suit is getting hit with 500.000 volts, generated by a homemade Tesla Coil. Lightning sparks are shooting out of his hands, right over our camera's lens. We had mounted the camera in its own Faraday cage to protect it."
