In the 2004 comedy Napoleon Dynamite, there’s a character named Uncle Rico. Rico can’t quite let go of his past. “Back in ’82, I used to be able to toss a pigskin a quarter of a mile,” he would tell his nephew.
We know that’s not true, but in real life, Andre Burakovsky can basically hit a golf ball to the moon.
Don’t believe us? Check out this video.

In a year old video floating on Tumblr, Burakovsky shows off a golf trick at TopGolf. Burakovsky places a golf ball in his mouth, spits it towards his club, and hits it Happy Gilmore-style (minus the loud whooshing effect) high into the horizon.
This seems unreal and CGI’d, but apparently, it’s something other humans can do too.
