Is that a Tesla coil or a Van de Graf generator and what's the difference?

I'm going with Van De Graaf.

At least it's not a Van der Sloot generator.

In short, a Telsa coil uses capacitors and transformers to step up an input voltage to lightning levels. A Van der Sloot generator creates murders and the Van de Graf type builds up a static electric charge by a method akin to you rubbing a balloon on your hair or shuffling your shoes across a carpet.

Tesla coil. Instant on and constant discharge are properties of a tesla coil. Van de Graff generators tend to charge up slowly and discharge intermittently as quick bursts.
