Thanks to a YouTube video posted on Christmas Day, a cute kid in a Ray Allen NBA jersey has been freaking out viewers around the world thanks to his apparent unnatural ability to twist his neck completely around, so that while his back is turned toward the camera, his head continues to face the viewer.

The man standing behind him, who is overheard to be his father, holds the boy’s head firmly in both hands, then gives him the signal to do the stunt — at which point the kid rotates his neck far enough for him to give Dad a big hug while his face is still held firmly in the man’s hands. It’s like an impression of Regan McNeil in THE EXORCIST, except way more adorable.

Viewers are twisting their own brains trying to figure out how this stunt was pulled off (or whether it was an optical illusion), but as of today YouTube poster Sergio Tapia has not come forward with an explanation.
