I think it just seems to slow down when he hits it back because he is hitting it diagonally across the table and we can't see that it still is traveling at the same speed, just a different angle. Just a thought, I really am not sure either.

i think it has to be since the nunchucks would implode the ball
User avatar #20 to #3 - nightmaren (05/02/2013) [-]
I don't think you understand what implode means.

this to a greater extent

Fair enough
User avatar #28 to #27 - gcloud (05/02/2013) [-]
but iv been thinking about it and maybe ur right and its grammaticly incorrect to use it this way

tho wouldnt ur call that collapse inward?
User avatar #30 to #28 - nightmaren (05/02/2013) [-]
No, I would.
When I think implode, I imagine something collapsing into itself and then disappearing, so the only time I imagine it being acceptable is when you're talking about cosmic **** , but I'm pretty sure I'm wrong.

iv never bee none for great grammar
User avatar #23 to #20 - gcloud (05/02/2013) [-]
to burst inward
to break down or fall apart from within

To collapse inward violently.
www.thefreedictionary.com/implode

i think i understand the word just fine
User avatar #24 to #23 - nightmaren (05/02/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure a ping pong ball wouldn't implode from being hit by nunchucks, despite how strong they might be.
User avatar #44 to #24 - nelflover (05/02/2013) [-]
I can agree with gcloud here, or actually both of you. I'm just saying; maybe it's not the correct way to use implode, but I understood what he ment with it and that should count for something. Shouldn't it? Can't it be somewhat a small implosion, never quite fully consuming itself?

I think this was made for a Nokia commercial, and its not him. They have some other cool ones, like lighting matches in the air with nunchucks.
User avatar #109 to #2 - ZakisBak (05/02/2013) [-]
I believe it is fake, as it was a series of commercials he agreed to do with Nokia, there is another one where they tape the rough stuff people strike matches on to the end of his nunchucks, then proceed to throw matches at him. He swings and lights them on fire while they are in mid air.
User avatar #6 to #2 - nelflover (05/02/2013) [-]
It is. If you look close you can sometimes see the ball slow down right before the guy with the racket hits it.



I too wish it was true

As a guy who plays ping-pong for fun at his Church on Sundays, I can tell you, that's no proof of it being fake.

I'm much weaker and thinner than my friend, so when he spikes the ball, and I return the serve, I feel as if the balls going a bit... slower.

8. To make him look faster than he really was, the filmmakers speeded up Bruce Lee.

REALITY: Well, at least I have a myth I can address with some authority, as a director. It was exactly the opposite. Bruce was so fast that he was just a blur on the camera, so they slowed him down. The 35mm shutter speeds aren’t that fast. This myth came from the public’s mis-understanding of the film process. You see, in order to slow someone down, you have to do what’s called “overcranking” your camera. This means you speed up the camera, you take more frames per second, but when you play it back, the action is slower. It’s like playing a 45 rpm record at 33 1/2. When people heard that
they had to speed up the camera, they misinterpreted that to mean speeding up
the action.

I don't care if it was filmed slow or not, the last 15 minutes of Ong Bak 2 blew my socks off. Especially that one particular scene where he's fighting two guys at once with two different fighting styles (tiger-style Kung Fu and Muay Boran).

People make jokes about Chuck Norris' greatness

Bruce Lee is so great noone dares to make a joke

He's afraid of Bruce Lee in the afterlife.

That has gotten out of hand. I think it was one punch in one movie they had to slow down for a good shot.

Bruce Lee's films weren't action movies, they were show cases of martial arts with underlying stories of honor and retributive justice. It made for beautiful fight scenes where you could actually see what the hell was going on instead of blurs and shaking camera angles.

I am told there was a documentary called "Bruce Lee: A Warrior's Journey" in of which they showed film reels that were taken out of movies because they moved to fast and it made the movies look really jerky.

Fun fact: His skills with nunchucks were so awesome, that even when they it was slowed down, you still could only see a blur.
