Boy can twist his head around 180 degrees

Footage of a young boy with a remarkable contortionist act has already proven a hit on social media.
Some people are double-jointed and can move their arms, legs and feet in ways that would make most of us wince, but in this new video, which was uploaded on to YouTube last week, a youngster with incredible flexibility demonstrates his ability to turn his head to face the total opposite direction.

Nicknamed 'The Exorcist' after a scene in the famous horror movie of the same name, the freaky stunt has racked up over 100,000 views and has left many Internet users speechless.

Suffice to say this is definitely not a trick you want to be trying at home.

Not even 180 deg. More like 160 or 165.

Can he do this without the "help" of the adult behind him? wonder how he discovered this strange technic or was he "trained" to do it over time by .....the adult behind him? Sort of like those people with the elongated necks, stretched over time with neck bands? Somehow because of his "assistance" I am wondering if this is a case of being double jointed or being trained....or a form of child abuse for " amusement" Just the thing which is in my mind too. Something seems seriously wrong here. Their necks are not actually elongated. Girls first start to wear rings when they are around 5 years old... [More]

Too bad he can't play hide-and-seek!

Not a unique case. Martin Laurello ("the human owl") was the first person who was famous for this.

Well, presumably the boy can't do this without the assistance of his bullying older brother/ sibling / whatever no, he can't turn his neck 180 degrees at all unless forced to by somebody else's physical manipulation. That person should be punched in the throat very hard for abusing that child for the purposes of their own amusement...and getting internet hits!
