Main Question or Discussion Point

I don't understand how could the fly get electrocuted. How to make a difference of potential through the fly in this video? .

I believe she closed the circuit though legs. Just like you would if you touched phase and null.

Although this is true if that device, that is electrocuting it, has a lot of small + - exits on its surface, so that the fly can close the circuit and get shocked.

This is purely my guess.
