What is this guy doing?

I watched this video a couple time and couldn’t figure out what he trying to do. I’m guessing and it appears that he poked the electrical terminal with a metal rod and didn’t get killed doing that was he lucky or is he the real super human that electricity at that rate cannot harm him, as you can when sparks start flying the sky darken for a sec there, must be some strong power. It could also be he placed a metal pice in the wooden stick rod or something then put it to the electrical terminal for it to short and creates that giant sparks that probably caused fire later.
