Last week, the story of a husband-wife football team rivalry that spurred a Monday Night Football bet that resulted in the wife getting shot with a stun gun when her team lost went viral.
Now, video of the actual moment the Chicago Bears-fan husband shocked his Green Bay Packers-fan wife has emerged.

John Grant shocked Nicole Grant with a stun gun after they allegedly had made a bet during the November 4 game in a Mayville, Wisc., bar.
"They had a bet, between the two of them. The loser was supposed to get Tased by the winner," Bartender Chris Neu told WLS-TV. "She kind of laughed it off. She agreed to the whole thing. They videotaped it and everything else."
The Bears ended up beating the Packers 27-20 -- and the terms of the bet were executed.
Here's the video of the event courtesy of WGN-TV:
The video appears to show the woman laughing, and both the husband and wife registered blood alcohol levels above the legal limit.
According to ESPN Chicago, Mayville Police Chief Christopher MacNeill said Nicole Grant laughed during the first two shots, but when a third came, she felt it crossed the line.
The wife ended up calling the police on her husband, saying she hadn't consented to being shot.
Her husband, though, alleged that she had given consent and showed police a text message sent to their sons confirming the bet.
After viewing the video of the incident, captured with a cellphone, police determined the husband could not be charged with battery.
"You can't make this stuff up," MacNeill said, according to ESPN. "It takes the rivalry to a whole new level."
The husband was, however, charged with felony possession of the stun gun, which is illegal in Wisconsin.
The FDL Reporter noted that Grant, a truck driver from Tinley Park, Ill., said he picked up the stun guns in Virginia and didn't know it was illegal to have or use them in Wisconsin.
If convicted for his possession of the weapon in the state, Grant could face a $10,000 fine and up to six years in prison.
