An unusual clip of a man rotating his head 180 degrees on his neck and then spinning it back to its original position has gone viral on social media. The video was posted by TikTok user @sheaabutt00, who wrote: “Party trick! #duet if you can do this.”
In the video, the man can be seen putting gone of his hands on his chin and the other behind his head. He then pushes his chin backwards and pulls the top of his head forwards.
Once his head takes an 18-degree turn, he spins it back to its original position.
“Oh s***! I need a drink, I need a drink!” a voice can be heard saying in the background.

The video quickly went viral on social media, racking up more than 3 million views and over 53,000 likes.
One baffled user asked, “What in the exorcist is this?” Another user wrote, “How did he even discover he had this talent? Like what was he trying to do?”
Dr Simran Deo told LADbible that she believes there are “very few” people who can do it safely due to “hypermobile joints or connective tissue disorders.”
She said, “This is when the muscles, ligaments and tendons are more stretchy meaning that joints can bend further than they would in people without these conditions. Overall though this is not something to try to do as it could lead to paralysis or a reduced blood supply to the head and neck leading to a stroke.”
