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?
