WUT?! We cannot change the Laws of Physics...

Not sure if this is real or fake...

Hmmm... Slowed down:

Fake, he celebrates without looking and before it happens.

It's kind of like this.

Camera tricks. It's gotta be camera tricks.

Say what now?!

Awesome sauce of the original gif:

Tumba Ping Pong Show, you say?

Camera on tripod with fake camera wiggle added, then overlayed with masked footage of strike with the ball edited out... Aha!!

Redditor Darktidemage analyzes:

A ping pong ball weighs 2.7 grams : A bowling ball weighs 7200 grams

The ideal speed for a bowling ball hitting the pins is 17 miles per hour.

http://www.bowlingball.com/BowlVersity/ideal-bowling-ball-speed#idc-cover

17 miles per hour = 7.6 meters per second. The kinetic energy of the bowling ball will be (.5) x (mass) x (velocity squared) so .5 x 7.2 x 7.62 = 207.9 Joules

to generate 207.9 Joules the ping pong ball has to be traveling at 392.42 meters per second. Which is 877.8 miles per hour.

So you're saying there's a chance?
