We all know that the schoolyard fun of jumping rope has been around for centuries — but chances are you haven’t seen it in its most extreme form.
And no, we’re not talking about Double Dutch.
A video of students in eastern China putting their jumping and turning skills to the ultimate test has stunned people on the internet.
The clip, shared on Twitter, shows dozens of students in a schoolyard swinging multiple ropes in unison all at once.
Meanwhile, one impressive student jumps between all of those ropes.
Check it out:
The video, which has been viewed over 490,000 times, is so spectacular you have to see it to believe it.
(Can you imagine these ropes getting tangled up — and what it would be like dealing with that aftermath?)
Twitter users were super impressed by the rope-jumping spectacle and had something to say about it.
One person said, “This looks like it could decapitate someone.”
Another wrote, “Any chance there’s a clip of it taking someone out?”
“‘The Hunger Games’ — but if you stop skipping you die,” another commented.
