This is when a kindergarten teacher performs incredible trick shots by throwing playing cards through impossibly small openings and landing them in clothespins.
Michael Wlotzka, 39, started doing the mind-blowing stunts last March after returning from vacation, just as Germany entered the Covid-19 lockdown.
Since then, his videos have earned him 1.6 million TikTok followers, as well as 117,000 on Instagram and 30 million likes.

The videos show some of the challenges Michael, from Gladbeck in West Germany, has completed and posted on social networks.
A collection of Michael’s top 10 trick shots shows him tossing playing cards, as well as ping pong balls and other objects, landing them in small spaces while timing himself with a stopwatch.
His stunning stunts include landing a card in a clothespin after throwing it through a perspex slot that looks no wider than a CD case.
Other footage shows the German influencer beating his friend with a trick shot version of zeros and crosses, landing a ping pong ball through an obstacle course and onto a glue stick.
Michael said he started taking on challenges with soccer balls, ping pong balls and toilet paper. However, once he started landing playing cards in clothespins, he increased the various difficulty levels.

His posts soon started garnering views and shares, and his videos went viral.
Michael said some of the videos have been viewed more than 20 million times.
He added: ‘It’s really fun for me to come up with new ideas that people have never seen before. That’s my motivation.’
When asked about his handle ‘Jayjinho81’, the influencer said it was inspired by former Nigerian footballer Jay-Jay Okocha who played for German clubs Borussia Neunkirchen and Eintracht Frankfurt.
Okocha also spent four years at Bolton Wanderers and a year at Hull City.
Michael, who left his office job 20 years ago to work with children in a kindergarten, said his plans remain in Germany for now, where he lives with his wife and six-year-old daughter.
