tasWatching a Taser fired into someone’s back is probably not top of your bucket list.

But this amazing footage filmed by the Slow Mo Guys is well worth two-and-a-half minutes of your time.

YouTube stars Gavin Free and David Gruchy have earned more than six million subscribers to their channel thanks to series of jaw-dropping videos including a man in a giant water balloon and an exploding oil fire, all filmed with a high speed cinema camera to give an astoundingly dramatic effect.

Their latest effort could be the most painful – and fascinating – yet, as it features a man in Scotsdale, Arizona, having a Taser fired into his back.

Volunteer Dan Hafen is bare-chested and held by workers from the manufacturer’s headquarters as the two probes are fired at 55 metres per second and ripple his skin as they reach their target.

The ultra-slow motion footage captures the probes leaving the weapon in astounding details and arcing towards Dan before making impact. (Mirror.co.uk)
