My dad was my hero when I was a young boy. And then it’s a toss-up between Han Solo, the New Zealand All Blacks Rugby team, and Marlon Brando. – Martin Henderson
It’s impossible to rule out camera tricks, digital effects, editing techniques or just the right mix of any or all of them, but precision skills like these are “common” where people dedicate their lives to honing the skills needed to rise to the top of a given discipline.
The players don’t come right out and make any claims about their performance, and it is a commercial advertisement created to “go viral,” so it’s up to each of us to make up our minds. Whatever your take, think of this demonstration like any magic show.
In order to enjoy it fully, suspend your logic and allow your sense of “awe” to take over. Go ahead, treat yourself. Have a little fun!

– WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYiNG –
Snotr: “Nice skills if it’s real. Can’t see the complete path of the balls when he kicks them into the barrels, or if he’s using a mirror to see the balls coming when he’s catching them from behind. Just the skeptic in me coming out.” – hdwg
YouTube: “…its not fake, they probably just took a few tries to get these right. There is nothing in this vid that couldn’t be done by any world class rugby player with a bit of practice.” – SeanEatWorld
The Blaze: “Just remember, these guys do this for a living, and are THE BEST IN THE WORLD at what they do. Real or not the ALL BLACKS ROCK. Go AB’s. By the way, it’s Piri Weepu and Corey Jane and the New Zealand All Blacks have the best for and against record of any world team in any sport…look it up.” – Fastpoose
