How is this possible? (video)

This guy can turn his head completely backwards, 180 degrees. Freaky!

No clue. But that somehow doesn't seem like a good idea...

Unless you see something like that in a tank top, don't believe it.

Do a frame by frame.. There are clearly a few frames with empty/blurred boxes where the head should be as he turns and then again when he turns around.

I'm going with the obvious on how this is possible.

PS: Based on the quality, he is the Jon Benet killer also!

I think that's just from the video compression.

Okay, so he's not the Jon Benet killer or he's the first person ever to be captured cranking his head in a 180. Gotcha~

David Blane does a similar thing with his hand. Again, no tank top, no sale.

I put on a tank top and watched it but I still can't figure it out.

How is this possible? Perhaps he has no spine!

Perhaps he's had some sort of surgery to his neck...had his spine "shaved down" so that they don't restrict their movement.

Perhaps I don't have a clue.

With a little help, he can make it 360 degrees!

You can bet when the squad needs someone to watch their backs, they call on this guy.

It could just be real. I saw an old clip from the Ripley's Believe or Not shorts from the 1930s which featured a man who could turn his head about 3/4 of the way around (135 degrees), but not 180 like this guy. Or it could be fake, but I don't think it's inconceivable that the guy was born with loosely connected or very flexible tendons and cartilage in his neck that allows him to do this.
