Aug 26, 2014 By Abraham 9

You can tell by the nervous faces of the people at the start of this video that they might be starting to regret the decision they made to participate in photographer Patrick Hall’s “Taser Photoshoot.”

And then the tasering begins, and all that nervous regret is confirmed…

To capture the following portraits, as you see in the video above, Hall gathered over a hundred subjects and zapped them with a stun gun in his studio…

      It is. Are you mistaking it with a stun gun or a prod which is a large rod for herding cattle? This is a self-defense device called a taser :)

    No, it’s not a Taser. A Taser shoots two electrodes via wires. This is a stun gun.
    Still hurts like hell…
