It is real,and it's not magic either. The man is not shooting electricity,just conducting it.
The guy is insulated from true ground ( if you look at the beginning of the video,you'll see that he is sittting on some kind of insulating
He is not touching true gound at any time,thus,he is not in danger.
Now granted,that takes courage,but some people have higher body electrical resitance than others. At no time on that video is he touching any
real,true ground.If he did,he would be dead ( that high voltage probe from the back of that tube i think it puts out a few thousands volts,if memory
serves right). Cool stuff,but totaly possible and explainable.
djohnsto77 : The stuff you see emanating from your fingers when you touch the knob, is because you are like a capacitor when you walk on a
carpet...you charge yourself with static.Once you touch the knob ( true ground)..zap...the electricity passes through you onto the knob.
My father used to entertain me with this kind of stuff when i was a kid
