generator made of old speaker parts

I was watching this video on facebook and I did not understand it.

It shows that a generator is made from old speaker parts and spark plugs. Can someone explain the science behind it?

some of the comments say it is fake. Which is what I think too.

That is a HOAX. There is no way that will generate any electricity.
Just coil over speaker magnet will not generate electricity and having air gap of spark plug will just act as a open circuit and the other end of the wire is just soldered on to another gutted speaker terminal which is not connected to anything.

All videos on this facebook and youtube are fake.

That's a DIY flux capacitor. I've heard rumors that they actually work for time travel.

But only when installed in a DeLorean.

I wouldn't mind someone explaining how the light goes on, though. Pretty good trick.

Late thought, could there be a Van De Graaff Generator involved off-screen?

Most of the video titles translate to some variation of "free energy". These are versions of tricks that have been around for ages ranging from curiosities to circus sideshows to investor fraud. There is always a hidden power source somewhere in the apparatus, and always a con man asking for money.

I apologize for starting this thread. I resolve to be less easily duped in the future.
