Luke,

in very simple terms if you have a very high voltage, and an air gap, (like when the switching takes place on the videos) the current will try and bridge the gap (thats the spark) this causes localized ionization of the air around it, which becomes electrically charged - or basically, conductive - of course this causes more current to flow, so eventually think whole thing just blows

basically!

Come to think of it, something like that happens everyday I'm left to my own devices at work... :(
 
Lovng that! especially the huge explosion! top quality! Good old americans, you gotta love the yellow belly bandits! (homer simpsons of the real world!)

What was that wooden box about? where they testing something? did you hear the random cow bell after the flash? ( a bit like the beggining of a round in boxing!)
