Slade Manning's Amazing Ping-Pong Ball Trick Shots In Cups Span Eight Cities Over Three Years (VIDEO)

Slade Manning makes intricate ping pong ball trick shots look effortless. But Slade is apparently one patient individual. Storyful relates that he completed the dozens of stunts in eight cities over three years. Some of the more difficult shots required a whole lot of do-overs.

"I just leave the camera going for one-two hours at a time and cut the misses out when I finally make it," Slade explained to Yahoo. "Most shots take around 2-5 hours so that could be anywhere from 500 to 5,000 tries."

Watch above as ping pong balls bounce, fly, ricochet and roll into cups through all kinds of obstacles in five states.
