He's a bit more than a "circus freak".
That guy should collect the million dollar reward from James Randi for proof of the supernatural; because while apparent immunity to the effects of
electricity isn't what one would normally associate with the word "supernatural", it is definitely not natural; so technically it should qualify. I
can't even think of a hypothesis to explain this; it seems to violate physics and/or biology.
Actually I can think of a very far-fetched hypothesis: his flesh is a superconductor, or close to it (like I said, far-fetched). Normal flesh is
damaged by significant electrical current flowing through it for the same reason that hot dog in the video was cooked (a hot dog is made of flesh
also); i.e., the electrical resistance of flesh is such that a strong current creates excessive heat from the resistance to the flow of electrons, and
excessive heat damages (by "cooking") flesh.
In addition, the body runs on electrical signals generated by the brain (i.e., the nervous system), and significant outside electrical current
interferes with those signals, causing loss of voluntary control of the affected area (which is why it is common for someone who has grabbed a hot
wire to be unable to let go).
So we have conflicting phenomena going on here. On the one hand, he isn't experiencing the "shock" reaction (loss of muscle control), which would
indicate that he is insulated from electricity, like if he was wearing a rubber suit. However, the electricity is flowing through him; it has to be in
order to reach the hot dog, and as shown in the other demonstration as well. That indicates conductivity. However, conductivity through his flesh
should be causing burns and loss of muscle control, but it isn't. The lack of burns could be explained if he was a superconductor, which is
essentially impossible; but I can't even come up with a wild guess as to why he doesn't experience the "shock" effect.
