“Miss Ping” catches two knives struck by a ping pong paddle, stands whisper-quiet and still as a knife cuts through a pineapple inches from her face and hair, and then, for that little bit of “this is how good we are” flair, she catches a ping pong ball in her mouth. Holy wow.
The amazing video with over half a million views.
But one question remains, is the Tumba Ping Pong Show showing us masters of knives and ping pong paddles, or savvy video editing?
Savvy video editing. The video is fake.
The first step to analyze the video was to download it in the highest resolution, but you can do your own simple analysis by pausing it at the appropriate time. Indeed, someone already did this which prompted the investigation. YouTuber Trianon911 said in a top comment:
FAKE . STOP 0:17 in the girl ping pong racket +1 knife!

but wait, there’s more…
Another YouTuber proposed that this frame is yet another giveaway:
This image is iffy. For one, there are two mitigating factors, the shutter speed from the camera which blurs the knife, and the YouTube compression that allows us to stream this video efficiently. Still, we agree that it’s suspicious, though not necessarily the final nail in the coffin, which leads us to…
The Final Nail in the Coffin: It’s all in the toss.
It’s clear that the Tumba Ping Pong are some very clever video editors, but they’re not nearly as talented at ping pong stunts as they’d have you think.
