Amazing Spinning Bowling Ball Trick Shot

(Video Link)

Michael Long sets up a bowling trick that is impossible--right up until the end when it works perfectly.

He sets two pins in the middle of the lane. Then he spins a bowling ball and sets it slowly moving forward. Meanwhile, he knocks over all but two pins with a second bowling ball.

The spinning ball slowly moves down the lane, weaving in between the pins set in the middle. Then it knocks over the two remaining pins at the end. Amazing!

Wow, nice trick shot. It's very hard to do and I think he made several attempts to get this right.

I've read the comment section in youtube and they seem to think the lane is crooked. I think it's a combination of the lane's oiling (wet in the middle, dry at the edges), ball's coverstock (which allows it to grip the lane when it's on the edge, and glide when it's on the middle, and the ball's core (which may have biases that causes it to move as such in the lane).

The other shot is much easier. He just hit the pins high, hitting the lead pin and missing the pocket. The angle of entry also ensured that the 3-6 are left standing.

Even then, it is a terribly hard shot and I commend the bowler for his skill.
