WATCH Captain Disillusion Debunk The Viral Ping Pong Knife Act

Here's where this ping pong video went wrong.

Last month, Tumba Ping Pong Show released a particularly impressive video that showcased their ping pong knife act with Miss Ping.

The video attracted as much skepticism as attention, because the death-defying stunts look too sharp to be real.

Luckily, Captain Disillusion is here to put an end to the head-scratching. Watch him give a play-by-play commentary outlining how each trick might have been accomplished with some simple sleight of hand and digital erasing.

We're sorry to ruin the magic, but we still have mad respect for the crafty skills of Miss Ping, Slightly Mad Max and DJ Coolman.
