When two Matts get together, you know something big is about to happen. Something big, electrical, and terrifying. In short, something electrifying. But we'll get to that later.

First, let's get acquainted with the Matts. First up is Matt Harding of Where the Hell is Matt? fame. He actually produces this series of videos where he does this funny dance while he travels all over the world. I kid you not. This guy is actually pretty famous and a lot of his dancing videos went viral, so you really should know who he is by now. Let's call him Matt No. 1.

Then there's Matt Inman. He's the Matt of The Oatmeal fame, which is like the coolest comic on the Internet ever. Seriously, if you haven't heard of him, then you need to start getting out from under that rock and live, man! Anyway, Inman will be our Matt No. 2.

Like we said earlier, both Matts got together and did something truly shocking. And we mean that literally. You see, Matt No. 2 raised over $900,000 to prevent the lab of Nikola Tesla (aka 'the greatest geek who ever lived') from getting demolished. As a thank you, someone apparently sent him an awesome Tesla coil lightning gun. So what does he do? Use it to shoot Matt No. 1 while he dances and holds a fluorescent tube which lights up every time he gets zapped.

Feel free to play the video again and again. It's just that fun and awesome. Now isn't science fun?
