Have you ever tried opening a can of beer with playing cards? Sounds bizarre and utterly impossible right?
Well, not for one “kung fu master” in China.
A spectacular video, reportedly filmed in Mianyang, Sichuan Province, shows martial artist Zhou Chaofeng piercing a beer can from a distance using nothing but a card.
The incredible feat has, of course, been achieved after years and years of training. Chaofeng has been practicing the trick for nearly 11 years along with kung-fu and other forms of martial arts.
Card throwing is a trick usually associated with stage magicians. American performer Rick Smith Jr., for example, holds the world record for throwing a playing card from the greatest horizontal distance (72 yards). Last year, he made another record by throwing a card vertically 67 feet.
