WTF – Lie Detector Hand Zapper

A bit of a disclaimer: this isn’t really a Korean product. The box and packaging is all in English. However, we’ve seen this thing pop up in a few Korean shows lately, and we found it while browsing Gmarket, so it makes sense for us to talk about it because it’s somewhat relevant!

More importantly, this was fun to play with. However, it’s not all too relevant for us, because we’re honest people. Ha! What have we to hide? I’m literally the most honest person you’ll meet, or at least I’m tied for first, because I never lie. I’m batting 100% on the truthiness scale.

I mean, why lie? I’m married now: I’ve got Martina for life! Buahaha!

No, but for real, I know I was supposed to lie because I was supposed to be embarrassed by some of the questions, like if I sniff my armpits or not, but – hell – I don’t get embarrassed. Some people ask us about that as well: how are we not embarrassed when we’re out in public and we’re being silly in our videos. The answer, ladies and gentlemen, isn’t confidence, but indifference, which look the same on the outside. On the inside, though, confident people are showing the world proudly what they can do. In our case, though, we’re not proud or confident: we’re just not phased by other people’s opinions of us. We’re married! We’ve got all we need for the rest of our lives!

Ok so this is turning into a weird discussion about life and meaning and marriage and stuff. Bottom line: we’re honest people :D

On another note, we put Soo Zee into the lie detector afterwards and asked her some questions, but she never got zapped. We even made her tell lies and she never got zapped. She’s got ice water in her veins. Nothing cracks her. She’s a machine!

I think it’s just the machine detecting your pulse and seeing any spikes if you’re uncomfortable. Soo Zee never got uncomfortable, so it never spiked. We noticed, though, that if you scare someone while they’re strapped in, they’ll get spiked even if they don’t lie. So, pro-tip here: if you’re with a friend and want to zap them, have someone else sneak up behind them and shout. They’ll both get a zapping and a bit of ear damage. Hooray for friendly abuse!

I got zapped because I was ambivalent towards my beard, which I like some times, and others I don’t. The zapper picked up on my ambivalence and shocked the blue Jesus out of me. It’s hard to describe the zap, though: it doesn’t feel like getting electrocuted, which I had happen once when I stuck my finger into a broken outdoor Christmas light (stop judging me!). That was a numb convulsion feeling that hurt my heard. This was more just like a really rapid vibration that was more surprising than painful.

Anyhoodledoodle, you can buy this lovely toy on Gmarket, and, if you had fun watching this WTF (we’re having lots of fun with our WTFs lately, if you can’t tell) and want to subscribe for more, click on the pretty button below for more. Yay!

  1. Well Simon, the next time you are feeling ambivalent about your beard, you should try this new hipster trend.

  2. While this was a hilarious video, you guise are CRAZY to let a cheap toy shock you, you never know what you’ll get (tingly? to ZOINKS!). I honestly thought that Martina would get away with not getting shocked, you are brave Martina! Simon, I think you *did* make a mistake with the facial hair, especially making this decision in summertime. It’s not so much the look on its own, it’s more that next to Martina, you tend to look a little……pedo? Boratz? Scruffy? It just doesn’t really match with your clean look image (you always dress very neatly, even when sporty). Maybe if you did a hair tattoo in it or groomed it more closely? Can there be manly-pretty-boy facial hair? Otherwise, it looks a bit like a Russian lumberjack wearing his little son’s clothing at times. Experimentation is fun! I can only image Fangurilla with all that hair…..eeepers…..brrrrrrr…….if we ever see Fangurilla again, I mean.

  19. I burst out laughing during my french class once because I was watching Simon’s EXO-lent meltdown. Something about how he’s basically rolling on the floor dying while Martina is just shaking her head is somewhat hilarious to me.

    Seriously though, why can’t Simon’s laugh become the new laughtrack for everything.

  20. I feel so bad for laughing at your pain. I’m so sorry lol. But now I know that that thing is legit I have seen it a lot on variety programs and I thought the celebrities were overreacting (which they have a tendency to do), but now I see that the struggle was real lol.

  21. I’ve seen this on many variety shows, that would scare the heck out of me. I’d be so nervous about getting buzzed, I would keep getting buzzed…^^’ And oh my gosh, the Sailor Moon Crystal animation is really beaauutifull! I cried when I saw it…

    HAHA! This might be my favorite WTF! So funny! And I love that Soozee was just able to lie her way through haha. She’s like Azula defeating Toph!

  23. I just, I don’t even know what to say. Wait! I DO know! Simon, I respect you and all, but your reaction was the most unique thing I have seen! I mean, your face it was like a straight face! Plus to add to that your scream was the most manliest *cough* NOT *cough* that I heard…. Any who. I have this thing and I know what you went through Martina! My friends asked me a question that I HAD to lie to because I am a good person and I didn’t lie! But my question was about NU’EST and Hello Kitty! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not my REN!!!!!

  24. Oh my gosh! I jumped in my seat from being startled by Simon’s reaction. Then I could not stop laughing.

  26. Oh, Simon’s reaction, so funny! WTFs are really treasures! I’ve seen this game played on Korean variety shows and wondered if their reactions were all a show. Now I know the truth! Thanks for getting zapped for science (sorrybutnotsorry)!!!

  33. wow I’ve seen this thing on variety shows and in videos from fan meetings with kpop idols but I didn’t believe it actually works, like it actually picks up on lies/nervousness, I thought it was just random…
    another amazing WTF, these just get better and better, the flashback clip made me laugh so much (again)

    3 years ago
  34. YES! Finally! This thing has been on Korean TV for YEARS and I’ve been wondering when you two would get around to it. Go Soozee!!! Haha- I remember someone bringing it to school years and years ago (I think it may have been our Biology teacher, actually), but I was too much of a chicken to try it. I’m also a very honest person (even though I have not yet managed to find my other half!), but because I knew that this thing detects your pulse, I thought it might zap me anyway if I got nervous. So no. Not ever gonna do it.
    Martina’s reaction was beautiful though. Thank you guys for getting zapped for us!

  39. I am sure Sailor Moon forgives you Martina! That is pretty funny. I kind of want one, but I might be too chicken to try it on four. Also, Martina has the funniest laugh, but Simon’s scream kills me, that shriek is hysterical.

  40. I am still so glad this segment got brought back. lately WTF has been a very good work out for the abs. ;) I’ve seen the lie detector on a lot of dramas and Korean variety shows as well. thanks for throwing your selves on the line for our entertainment. As usual and thank you SoooooooZeee for making them do it lol.
    keep up the awesomeness.

  43. I was wondering about this since I saw it on We Got Married Global and after watching your video I am beginning to think the setting must have been on one for the show because Key and Ari’s reactions were milder compared to yours. Now to wish for money or some random purpose to buy it along with all the Kpop music I want. Oh the woes of a broke university graduate. November approaching much too quickly. Need a job.

  44. *laughs for the next decade* This WTF was hilarious & your reactions were priceless. It was so funny how Simon couldn’t even finish the sentence about how proud he was of his beard before he got shocked. And Martina’s face when she got shocked made my day. I love you guys~

  45. What would happen if you shocked someone with a “shock pen” while on this machine?…. Would they get double shocked?? -ponders life-

    3 years ago
    • Shock pen? I don’t know what that is.

      3 years ago
      • shock pens are gag gifts and when you press the top of what you think is a pen its actually a shocker so when you press the top it shocks the crap out of you. There are also shock lighters, and my fav is shock gum. It looks like a piece of gum sticking out of a pack but when you pull on the gum it shocks.

        3 years ago
  46. LOL! That was hilarious, particularly the cupcake question as I had a flash back of Martina’s face from last weeks WTF. That was incredibly funny, though I do feel for Simon. I have a lot of *cough* sore losers *cough* in my family, so I know the feels. ;)
    Also, I actually just watched the episode from We Got Married with Key and Arisa, where they used this lie detector and I was wondering if it actually worked. Now I know, thanks!!

  47. I don’t know what would hurt more, getting shocked or people’s feelings if they found out what I really feel. Lol. Jk.

  50. WARNING: Do not watch at 12:30am in a house full of sleeping people and pets. Barking and yelling will ensue after you bust a gut laughing. Soo Zee, you da bomb.. or should I say ‘buzzer’?
