Candle Power (Hoax?)

    Is there anything plausible to this, or is it just another cheap video parlor trick?

    The producer of this video clip has already earned almost $2,000 off of posting it.

    So obviously there are a lot of people out there believing this type of (pseudo)science.

    Nonsense!

    Note that the wires are hanging off the side of the table enough to be out of sight. This is where they switch to powered leads. In fact they probably just made a nick in the wires and clip on at that point with another set of leads.
