What happens when you put 20,000 volts into a Watermelon?

What happens when you pump 20,000 joules into a watermelon? Two words. Pink Mist. After trying to blow up a watermelon with a smaller capacitor, my friend coyt brought over 4 capacitors rated at 20kv and 25uf each. They came from a lab that used to them to simulate the effects of lightning on materials, so this is basically like what would happen if a lightning bolt struck a watermelon! 

One cool thing I did not point out in the video, is the plasma vortex that happens when we shock the steak the second time. It shoots towards my GoPro.

I tried some other things, like wrapping wire around beer bottles caps to see if the shockwave from an exploding wire would open the caps, but the wire kept shorting on itself and it never worked because it never went all the way around the cap. 
I also tried woodburning with the electricity, but the bolt just travels on the surface of the wood, not inside it, even when soaked in saltwater.

Thanks for my friends Coyt and Brandon, my 
Brother Riley, and my Girlfriend Sandra for hanging out. And thanks to my neighbor for not calling the cops after all!

I bet you're known throughout the neighborhood. Not just for YouTube but the amount of noise you make. Interpret that anyway your dirty minds feel the need to.

You cannot make loud noises past 10pm or before 6am. They can't legally call the cops

Cat urine will burn... if you put enough volts/amps to it. A few of my cats have a bad habit of peeing wherever, like on top of surge protectors. I've had 2 catch on fire so now I hang them up out of the way :P
