Your Demise Guitarist Ozzy Porkchop Experiences A Stun Gun Shock

Guitarist Ozzy Porkchop of U.K. hardcore act Your Demise recently experienced the fine American tradition of getting shocked by a stun gun. The band issued the following statement about the incident:

"YD played in south Carolina, whilst there we encountered a guy with a swazzy tattooed on his head. Later on that night we over heard the venue manager and the said 'skinhead' playing with a Taser. Oz then felt the need to try it out, what a legend."

A video of the experience can be viewed below.

I always thought a taser was the gun that shoots out those little darts and sends the charge through the wire, but it seems it's the brand name and they've branched out now into stun gun-like weapons too (like this one).

Interestingly enough, I got an email from Taser, saying that Taser is a trademark and that this stun gun was not a taser...
