What’s going on here
Signal, maybe stereo for red & white, common ground around the bodies of all. Using the extremely conductive copper. Because they don't have the correct RCA adapters, but the amp/headphone output carries the same type of signal. Whether the strength of the signal is of the right electrical strength, and whether the 'ground' provides any actual usefullness, indeed, whether my total analysis is flawed beyond comprehension, is not for me to say.

Never never do that ! It is not safe.
When I was a teenager and strings were too much expense for my limited budget, I kept a pile of unbroken used ones behind my stereo as spares. One day I was plugging my stereo in and I didn't notice I picked up a high E string with the prongs and plugged it in, shorting it out. That was quite an exciting spark and it actually broke the string and fused half of it to one of the prongs.
