A table tennis trick-shot artist has posted an amazing new video to YouTube, bending a ball at just the right angle to extinguish a birthday candle.

The shot is impressive not only for its accuracy, but also for the insane amount of curve the player gets on the ball, which seems to move around like it is on a string.

This is definitely the finest candle-related shot since Gerald Green's famed "Cupcake Dunk" at the 2008 All-Star Weekend.
