This Is What It Looks Like When A Pikachu Explodes

This exploding Pikachu is not actually the creepiest of photographer Alan Sailer's explosions series. (That would be the doll head.) But it's still plenty off-putting.

Sailer is a photographer who specialises in high-speed images — in particular, high-speed images of things being shot or blowing up. As he describes it, the destruction of an innocent Pokémon was merely an explosion of opportunity:

I ran into a garage sale that had this nice big hard plastic Pikachu.

Perfect target.

They wanted 2$, but when I told them I was going to blow it up for a picture, the kid who owned it said alright for one buck.

I filled it with red gelatine, crossed my fingers and fantastic, it turned out great.

The red gelatin is, really, the best and worst part. Poor Pikachu.

    Wonder what PETA is going to do about this? Anyway looks scary seeing a PIKACHU die

    I commend this, quite highly! Rather messed up...

    That kid must have something missing if he doesnt want the statue anymore
