WATCH: The Best Street Performers You’ll Ever See

Whenever I’ve seen street performers, they’ve generally just been a group of twenty-something men shouting things in unison as they build up to some trick for 20 minutes. And it doesn’t even end up being that cool.

Apparently, South Africa has higher standards for its street performers, if these gentlemen are any indication. In barely more than two minutes, they pull off not just one, but at least a dozen marvelous tricks, and they do it with style and, dare we say, unrivaled pizzazz.

My personal favorites are the elbow lick — which I thought was impossible — and the gravity-defying hat.

Enjoy the simple but fun video above.
