Ping-Pong Master Busts out Marvelous Behind-the-Back Table Tennis Shot

This behind-the-back shot might be fairly useful at your next backyard table tennis tournament. 

Actually, you might not be asked back if you bust out this shot and actually pull it off, because your friends will consider you some ping-pong warlock who needs to be banished. 

A tip of the hat to Deadspin for providing this marvel from the ITTF Kuwait Open that took place this past weekend. 

According to the report, France's Quentin Robinot is the one who decides to volley back with the most audacious table-tennis move we have seen. 

Belarus's Kiryl Barabanov watches the ball fly past him and looks on in amazement, much like every single person who comes by this video. 

Robinot would go on to win 4-0. You know, if you are into the details behind the best ping-pong shot in recent memory. 

You have to love Barabanov looking for help from the judges after seeing the shot whizz past him. He looks like every last NBA player looking for help from the officials. 

At first, he can't believe something so ridiculous would touch the table. After a few seconds to marinate on the wonderful shot, all he can do is applaud. 

Next time we hit the ping-pong table, most likely with a beer in hand, we are obviously going to try this shot out. 

I imagine it will be just as successful.
