Business card ninja Answered

It's always amazing to see people take some simple skill and take it to ridiculous extremes. This video showcases one man's insane talent for throwing business cards. Popping balloons, up through open windows, and knocking stuff over. And here we were all wasting our time using them to share contact info.

 Yeah people will definitely remember you when your business card is lodged in their forehead.

One word.

Gambit.

Now if he could get his cards to explode on impact, he'd be on to something.

Fantastic.  A 'Summer Olympics' consideration?
Well done.

A couple of things:
1. I can do this. I'm not as good as him but I'm pretty good with the foundations of it.
2. He wouldn't be good with ninja stars. Or metal cards. They are thrown differently and have massivly different properties. He probably wouldn't be great with laminated cards either.
3. If you wan't to know how to do this, message me. If enough people ask I'll just make an instructable.

Ok, budding card ninja out.

Pretty good editing and property control during the shoot, except in one section.  On the interior set, they keep the floor clean between shots, so it looks like he's got a 100% success rate. 

However, keep your eye out at 1:16, just before he does the throw up through the second story window.  You can see a bunch of his cards scattered around him, which are presumably from failed attempts.  Not to take away from this fellows amazing skill; this bit just seems more realistic.

He needs to play disc golf.  He could win money if he plays pro.

I'll give him some of my home made ninja stars, they're more lethal than any normal piece of sharpened steel!

playing cards can be quite lethal this way also, and if someone has as dangerous of a mind as i do those cards would be edged with razor blades hehehe :P
