Either these guys have unbelievable can throwing skills (and lots and lots of tries) or someone has mad video-editing skills! Check out these two clips and let the debate of real/fake start ... Thanks Chris!

They just show the successful attempts. I had a friend that saw a video art exhibit in Japan that did a similar thing. The exhibit documented the chance occurnaces of things such as throwing a penny from across a big room and having it land perfectly into an ashtray. The artist did this with many different things but only showed the successful attempts of each task attempted thus making it look like he did each task flawlessly but in reality he only showed the rare chance occurance after many many tries. If you look in these videos you see the rest of the guys sitting near the trash cans so it looks like regular people are siting about but they are sitting there for when the can misses. That way people don't get pissed they just got hit with a can, it is only their friends that get hit.

You'll need to speak German or French, for those are the langages of the different news/shows the throwers are in.

Just a matter of trial and error (and error, and error and error ;) and a little bit of training too, they can toss better than the average guy.

Many of the shots have someone/something in the path of the would-be fishing line. Although some of the tougher shots may still be done that way.

Not rocket science,maybe. But I defy anyone to make the kicking the can shot. Even w/ repetition. Sheesh. Some people will believe anything as long as it's presented prettily enough.

Wally here sounds like he's at least barking up the right tree.

And where has this been seen before? I missed it.
