You mean the "pachydermatous outer melon layer." And as long as the lad is not using the line...

What I like the best about that video is how his (presumably) sister has to get into costume to hold the vegetable target.

I'm also impressed that the kid was able to talk his peeps into "wasting" those vegetables. (Those of you who had Asian parents like mine probably agree that was the best magic trick of all! ;) )

"The film that inspired Wang to begin practicing, From Vegas to Macau is a Hong Kong-Chinese crime comedy film."

Any ID on that?

Awesome, thanks. I'd pay to see that.
