The best shock gag since the pen! – Shock-You-Friend Electric Shock Lighter (Practical Joke) Reviews

posted by Ghlargh on 11/15/2007 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
It looks and works just like a normal cheap lighter. The electrical shock can be turned off to "demonstrate" that it is just a normal lighter. The shock is not large enough to hurt, but it is very annoying and induces an allmost irresistable reflex to let go of the button.
Cons:
The bottom conductor is rather small, a full metal casing insulated around the button would be better.
The "metal" parts are just copper-chromed plastic meaning that the metal finish will rub off with time.
The shock may be too weak for some.
Other:
I managed to get 4 people shocked in few hours with this, and noone suspected a thing.
Bottomline:
This is the most convincing shock gag since the shoching ballpoint pen, noone who hasn't seen this thing before will suspect it as being a shock gag.
