Equipped with a high-speed camera, the team traveled to Taser International headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, to have their subject stunned with a Taser X26, the company’s most popular model, at 28,500 frames per second.
The first thing you get to see is a mixture of pink and yellow confetti that explodes from the Taser when it’s fired. That explosion surely isn’t there just to make anyone smile. In fact, each confetti boasts a unique serial number, vital in case police need to find out whether a Taser was fired at a crime scene.
The man who volunteered to be filmed while getting hit with a Taser, Dan Hafen, wasn’t a stuntman, but a colleague who works for the maker of the Phantom camera that The Slow Mo Guys (Gavin Free and Daniel Gruchy) used.
The footage shows his muscles contracting as the stun gun’s probes break the skin to deliver a high-voltage payload. In the X26 Taser the voltage peaks at 50,000 volts. “It feels like it’s never going to end,” Dan said after receiving the shock.“It’s a long five seconds.”
He added: “I didn’t really feel the probes. I feel like my muscles have locked up.”
While the company insists that Tasers are “non-lethal” weapons, the American Civil Liberties Union says that over 500 people have died in the US since 2001 after law enforcement officers used stun guns against them, according to a 2012 ACLU report.
The New York Police Department is set to spend some $4.5 million to buy a host of new Tasers for its officers, the New York Post reported last month.
Only patrol sergeants and Emergency Service Units are currently allowed to use Tasers, but training has reportedly begun for other officers, and field training officers will also be taught how to use the weapons.
