Check out the Tesla coil.

How to keep bugs, cats and neighbor kids at bay. Just the sound made me laugh out loud!

I checked out some additional clips and found this one. I think it's LaRondo, but I'm not sure.

Tesla coils are awesome!
I built myself a huge one. I use a 5KVA pole transformer wired backwards that outputs 14,400 volts @ 350ma hooked up in parallel to a .09uf @ 40,000 volt Maxwell capacitor from Los Alamos National lab. Can you say deadly??
From there it's fed through an air blast spark gap powered by an 80 gal 2 stage compressor and hooked to a flat helix coil. The inductance is transfered to an 8" dia. X 48" secondary coil form. The output is somewhere over 1.5 million volts and puts out 8 foot bolts of lightning. One day I'll put it back together and post a youtube video.

Current Stable:
01 ML55 AMG
92 500E (a few mods)
87 300E (lots of mods)
00 Chevy 3500HD Diesel Box Truck
68 18' Donzi Marine
06 GT i-Drive7 1.0 Mountain Bike (with GPS!)
