Info

Bill Wysock in his backyard, in Monrovia (near Hollywood), California. Fiery sparks crackle from a metal tube as he also lights a 40-watt light bulb in his hands. He is sitting on a metal disk linked by a cable to his Tesla coil: a transformer producing high-frequency currents that pass safely over the surface of his body. Low-frequency currents would pass through it, meeting resistance and causing injury. MODEL RELEASED
