Rule #1 about the Internet: if it seems to good to be true, it is most definitely fake. And even if it IS real, you’re best off saying that it’s Photoshopped or fake, because it’s way better to be cynical than be some rube who can’t spot a forgery. That’s the case with this excessive table tennis celebration, which is entertaining but obviously staged, even if some people are fooled:
I don’t really know where this clip is from – other than it appears to be taking place at USC – but it was just uploaded yesterday. And it is awesome. Never before have I seen such a celebration by a guy who just scored his first point after being down 0-10 in a ping-pong match.
And, I’m being dead serious about this, I would absolutely watch way more ping-pong if this happened more frequently.
Let’s play a little game I like to call “Occam’s Razor.” What’s more likely: a large crowd of people attend a ping-pong tournament in a USC gym, where one player launches into a ridiculous dance after scoring his first point… OR… Students at a college with a famous film school made a humorous video depicting such an event?
