Watch lightning blast through oil and water

This from the poster of the video:

"This video show the motion of a charged water droplet in mineral oil when subject to an intense electric field.
The bubble rises against the force of gravity dues to ites charge. Also it begins to deform with Rayleigh cones forming at the ends of the water bubble. Droplets break-off due to instabilities and the series of bubbles bounce around. Electrical discharge between the bubbles are visible when the charge and distance between the bubbles is just right."

Looks pretty cool, like some kind of magical amoeba war
