This is the moment a nursery school worker performs incredible trick shots by throwing playing cards through impossibly small gaps and landing them in clothes pegs.
Michael Wlotzka, 39, started doing the mind-bending stunts in March last year after returning from holiday just as Germany was entering 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 that Michael, from Gladbeck in western Germany, has completed and posted on social networks.
One collection of Michael’s top 10 trick shots shows him throwing playing cards, as well as ping pong balls and other objects, and landing them in small spaces as he times himself with a stopwatch.
His stunning stunts include landing a card in a clothes peg after tossing it through a Perspex slot that appears to be no wider than a CD case.
Other footage shows the German influencer beating his friend at a ‘trick shot’ version of noughts and crosses, as well as landing a ping pong ball through an obstacle course and onto a glue stick.
Michael said he started setting challenges with footballs, ping pong balls and toilet paper. However, once he started to land playing cards in clothes pegs, he ramped up the different levels of difficulty.

His posts quickly started amassing views and shares and his videos went viral.
Michael said some of the videos have gained over 20 million views.
He added: ‘It is really fun for me to think of 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 one year at Hull City.
Michael, who left his office job 20 years ago to work with children at a kindergarten, said that for now, his plans are to stay in Germany where he lives with his wife and six-year-old daughter.
