Tumba Ping Pong Show: Butcher knives, ping-pong paddles, a pineapple and a blonde. Sounds like the recipe for a bad joke. Instead, it’s a viral video making its rounds on the Internet this week, prompting some to watch in amazement, and others to cry fraud.
The video shows a contestant, “Miss Kim,” standing with two ping pong paddles. “Slightly Mad Max” displays two knives, then proceeds to sling them side-arm style at Kim. She puts her paddles out and the knives stick. Then another man, “DJ Coolman,” enters the frame, holds a pineapple atop Kim’s head, and Max once again whips a knife, splitting the fruit cleanly in half. Finally, Max hits a ping pong ball at Kim, who catches it in her mouth without moving a muscle.
It would almost seem too perfect to be real. It could be that the knives were already in the paddles, since Kim is holding them inverted. (Look at the 17 second mark for proof.) It’s pretty easy to fake a knife stunt, even for amateur video enthusiasts.
The Ping Pong Show's YouTube site currently has 22 videos, but none are as dangerous or unbelievable as this one.
