Oh my!

Well done mate, great job. That's a pretty fast pace you did it at too.
I note you have quite a high penguin... maybe that's where I was going wrong.

Right then, now do it without any of that moving-the-string-with-your-other-hand nonsense!  :P

Wow.  That was a cool surprise.  Well done, indeed.

I note, with some amusement, how the stress was starting to show towards the end!  Isn't it strange how such a simple toy can cause so much tension?

So, can you do it with your other hand, too?     8)

Wow. I can't believe somebody's finally done it, a trick so hard that it was actually a joke. Well done.

Congratulation! Seriously, I amtrying this trick for three months now and thought that it would need a year to master. Now you have done it!

Very great!

Thanks for your comments guys.
@guy I think after the penguin section the stress level doubles after each move. So by the end of it my chest was heaving!!!

Mind you the good thing about doing it on film is that I never have to do it again!!!!!! ;)

Thanks for the nice surprise in my inbox this evening. As mentioned on JTV I can confirm that no one else has even claimed to have completed the trick, let alone provided evidence.

Well done Dave, that is really amazing!

I completely agree about the stress increasing exponentially if you get passed the penguin section!

That's ridiculous Dave well done! Really unbelievable!
Surely this'll evolve into some nth dan trick at the JKA now we know it's possible[1].

So who's next? What's next?!

I doubt it would be made part of a competition as its just too long. The indevidual sections yes but not the whole thing.

Thanks orin it's great to hear I'm the first to land it!!!!!

The thing with it is that each section is not hard on its own but strung together are REALLY challenging.

Good luck to anyone trying this an the key is to learn penguin spike properly.

Dave, I think this gives you exclusive rights to go crazy and come up with an at least 75-move "Around Devizes". :)
