These Two Young Japanese Pen Spinners Will Blow Your Mind (Video)

You will never look at pens the same way again after watching this video of expert pen spinners from Japan. Who would ever thought that watching someone play with a pen will be this entertaining? Pen spinners Ian Jenson and PPM of Japan show their mad pen tricks in this three-minute clip by Kuma Films.

The two twirl the pens from one finger to another with amazing ease. They can even make the pens jump from one leg to another. Also referred to as pen twirling, pen mawashi and pen tricks, pen spinning "is a form of object manipulation that involves the deft manipulation of a writing instrument with one's hands" [Wikipedia]. It has evolved from a form of self-entertainment to one wherein enthusiasts meet and compete against each other.
