Some weekend hilarity for you. Both use a uniquely Japanese style of shadow puppetry (performance arts?), and both are ingenious. The fact that you know that it’s fake makes it even more hilarious.

I’ve posted this one a while back but I thought I’d put them both together here. This is of a karate master breaking things, and also people.

This one is table-tennis – ping-pong, Matrix style.
