Usually reaction photos consist of a baby eating a new food or a groom's face when he sees his bride for the first time. Photographer Patrick Hill wanted to put a new spin on this style by taking portraits of people being tasered with a stun gun.

The subjects' surprised and pained facial expressions are amusing to behold, especially as they appear to not be wearing shirts. This illusion of bareness also amplifies the visual and hilarity of the victims' shock.

Based out of South Carolina, Hall conceived The Taser Photoshoot to ensure he could get a genuine portrait and real emotion. The reaction photos were taken from a slow motion video of the original photoshoot. Stats for Tasered Reaction Photos Trending: Older & Popular
