Pen spinning

Post Comment

I was catching up on recent posts by my French counterpart when I saw this one from early January about pen spinning (“it’s very simply the art of juggling with your pen”). A propeller pen of one’s own, n’est-ce pas?

I immediately got a pang of nostalgia for my 9th grade geometry class, when a bunch of us taught ourselves to spin pencils around our thumbs. Alas, I’ve since lost the technique, but it was still fun to watch the video that Murielle posted, the so-called Daydream of a pen spinner, which is actually a commercial for Samsung Mobile.

I blogged about a Hong Kong pen spinning tournament last year. But did you know there’s also a World Cup of pen spinning?

Judging from the promotional video above, it’s no joke.
