Confession time. I’ve never had a Cheez-It. In fact, until I saw this video I wasn’t entirely sure I knew what a Cheez-It was. After watching this clip of armless archer Matt Stuntzman sniping one from 100 yards, however, I doubt I’ll be forgetting them in a hurry.
Here in the Mpora office, we’re a big fan of cool archery tricks. This one from Stuntzman though, might just be the coolest archery trick we’ve ever seen. Shooting a cracker from 100 yards would be impressive enough as it is but to do it with your feet, like Stuntzman does, puts this video on a whole new level of awesome.
“Stuntzman picks up a Cheez-It with his foot and casually flicks it into his open mouth.”
Understandably, Matt takes a few tries to get it right. But when he does, and the arrow smashes into the baked-nibble, boy is it extremely satisfying.
The fact that he pulls this trick off while wearing a Pringles t-shirt only adds to the fun-factor. We’re not sure if Pringles were involved, in an official capacity on the video, or if Stuntzman just really likes Pringles. Whatever the score, it’s put us in the mood for Pringles.
One of our favourite moments in the video comes in around the 1:53 mark, when Stuntzman picks up a Cheez-It with his foot and casually flicks it into his open mouth. Mpora can neither confirm, nor deny, whether we’ll be spending the entire afternoon attempting to recreate this.
