Playing Ping Pong with Knives (video)

If there was just one thing the label “Do Not Try This At Home” was invented for, it’s this video.

A group of Swedish performers known as the Tumba Ping Pong crew released an amazing video that shows a guy hitting chef knives with a ping pong paddle and an emotionless Miss Ping catching them with similar paddles. The video culminates with a maneuver that would make William Tell swoon.

Now we get to the ultimate question: real or fake?

The internet has turned me into a complete and utter cynic. Every awesome video seems to be fake, from that dancing girl who caught on fire to an eagle snatching a baby.

Still, regardless of whether these videos are real or fake, it’s always awesome to see them for the first time. If this is real, it’s a great showcase of skill and concentration. But even if it’s not, it’s a very creative skit with convincing camera trickery.

Check out the video below. What do you think? Real or fake?

    It was somewhat convincing up to the point, where the knife disappears after slicing the pineapple. Creative video though.
