The hula hoop is a deceptive childhood staple of outdoor fun. Sure you remember it as an easy rhythmic task, one punctuated by the sound of sand or marbles sloshing around if your parent really loved you. But go back to the toy aisle now and try again…make sure to have an employee lookout! That plastic hoop is more difficult to master than you recall.

Scoff if you want, by the end of this video you'll be sorry. Things get insane around the 1:00 mark if you don't have the patience to wait for the beat to drop.
