Learn how to turn pickles into lightbulbs

Learn how to turn pickles into lightbulbs in this intriguing video

Dry humor combined with some scientific experimentation resulted in the strangely intriguing short video entitled, Bompas & Parr’s Gherkin Chandelier. In the video, British culinary duo David Lane and Jeremy Valender began with the pickle in its original state, as a sandwich accompaniment. They then explain the process by which the pickle can be used as a light bulb.

The result of their experimentation is a chandelier of 60 pickles that draws as much power as required to light up a city block. For a more morbid perspective, it’s as much power as needed to power two electric chairs.
