Watch this Electrifying Tesla Coil Triggered, Film Canister Gatling Gun

YouTube's lovable science guy and Jimmy Kimmel frequenter ScienceBob shows viewers how to make their own gatling gun. Oh, but it's not just any gatling gun. It's a Tesla coil-triggered, ethanol-powered, film canister gatling gun.

We're more impressed with his ability to find 319 film canisters.

In this short video, you can see how Tesla coils can cause an electrical reaction. The high electric field creates lightning which sparks film canisters. Coil, which has high voltage, will lead to ionized air. Please, don't try this at home!
