I don’t watch sports, they hold no interest for me.  But when I saw this guy doing this amazing stuff with a football, I was absolutely mesmerized.

I was reasonably impressed right up to the last moments…knocking kids off bikes just ain’t cool.

Agree with you Smerk if he didn’t know the guys, but I think these were a couple of his friends willing to be the victims (as in the earlier ones where he aimed the ball at their butts and heads)

I notice, however, that only a few times does he actually make more than one successful throw during one continuous camera shot (throwing the three balls at the goal posts and throwing the balls at his friend being the only two times I can recall).  With times such as throwing the balls at the four basketball goals, he throws it into one. . . then the camera cuts off. . .then the camera cuts back on and he makes a second shot. . .then the camera cuts off again, and so on.  Which makes me wonder how many times they had to try and miss.

Not that the guy doesn’t have skill, but the video probably makes him look even better than he actually is.

And it looks as though he actually missed the second kid on the bicycle, who then fell down because it was scripted.  But it’s hard to tell from the video.

Yeah, I noticed the cutting/changing shots between throwing the ball and it reaching its intended target.  Also, the amount of cheering that started up with some of them did seem to indicate that he’d probably been trying that particular shot for a while.
