Any parent with a kid over five is sure to have witnessed their fair share of bottle flipping in recent times. They are also likely to have seen the dab that comes after a successful flip.

But did you know there's a whole Instagram account devoted to flipping objects? Well, there is, and this kid has become its star performer with his incredible pencil flip.

Just watch him in action.

The Instagram account is called Flips.9 and it features a whole load of submitted videos of kids flipping things. 

The boy above - known as law.216 - can't believe his successful pencil flip, and his reaction when he realises what has just happened is priceless. The kid in me is more than a bit envious he caught it all on camera and it looks like others are too, with several commenters calling it a fake.

To prove it was real, he submitted a second video (below) in slow motion so people could see no tricks were used. Lucky break, kid. Lucky break.


For everyone that thinks its fake
