    Appropriate song, works well with lightning.

    But it is just a guy moving his arms. Nicely executed, but it`s not magic. He`s not being struck by lightning and absorbing it with superpowers. He`s not being struck by anything. Looks cool, though.

    For these types of things, I`ve come to realize that it only looks like a boring stunt because I`m watching it on a computer monitor. Imagining myself there, perhaps as someone for whom this is an entirely new experience, and the excitement of seeing it live right before my eyes to the extent that I felt obligated to record it - that adds some depth to the material.

    Don`t cross the streams.
    why?
    ...Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

    Perhaps everyone saying its lame doesn`t understand whats happening, so I`ll let you in on it.

    The plasma arcs from the Tesla Coils are producing a majority of the music.

    By varying the power of the coil, they`re able to produce different tones from the electrical arcs. So with they help of a computer, they can manipulate the discharges to produce music.

    Even though it was awesome, i doubt he had anything to do with playing the music.
    In the background there is a band, it must have sounded even better live...

    Probably because there are waves of light that the camera can`t pick up that the electricity is emitting.

    Lightning, why do you look so fake?

    Strictly speaking, it isn`t lightning. It`s far less powerful than lightning and forms differently.

    What are you comparing it with? Sometimes we`re so used to how something is depicted on TV that the reality looks fake to us because it`s not the same as on the TV.

    The recording might also be an issue, given that the discharge is a lot brighter than the surrounding. It might be that the camera can`t quite record that degree of difference in brightness.

    It`s just chainmail, nothing exotic. The trick is that it must totally cover you everywhere, from over your head to under your feet.

    Lightning is many times more powerful than this, too. I`m not sure if a chainmail suit would protect you against that.

    They had these at Bestival 2010, only they had a person on top of each one fighting with lightsabers. It was called Arcadia (they make amazing stages and shows for festivals) if you want to youtube it.
