Most of us have thrown a ping pong ball into a plastic cup at one time or another. We probably missed it more times than it stuck, but when it did we felt like a champion. But we’ve got nothing on Tom Spicer, the Australian nine-year-old who takes this simple trick and turns it into a fine art.
Spicer and his dad have crafted a series of clever set-ups which elevate these tricks beyond simple ball in a cup stunts.
I just hope Tom inspires a revolution. Modern parents would have a much easier time if they could amuse their sprog with ping pong balls and plastic cups, don’t you think?
