Insane pool tricks

Apparently, magical pool shots require three things: (1) Napoleon Dynamite hair with nerdy McNerd glasses, (2) big-time soundtracks and (3) blondes in miniskirts.

And here are trick shots by what looks like Larry the Cable Guy‘s younger, skinnier brother, who calls himself Praying Mantis for some reason. No blonde. No glasses or Napoleon Dynamite hair. HOWEVER: What he does have is a rocking soundtrack stolen from 1983, possibly taken from Jan Michael-Vincent’s trailer on the set of AIRWOLF.

Special bonus video: flaming cue ball, which is apparently the kind of thing that world-class pool sharks do when they’re drunk.


This is Guy Bergstrom the writer, not the Guy Bergstrom in Stockholm or the guy in Minnesota who sells real estate or whatever. Separate guys. Kthxbai.

  1. Where do you find these things? :D
    What I love about the Praying Mantis video is that it’s basically this guy’s basement; you can see the hanging cables for his A/C, TV, and whatnot. Obviously, not a professional studio job. And the fact that he’s doing these shots in his untucked tee shirt and jeans is brilliant.
    I wish that our production team would get hired to do videos like this one!
