Yo-yo tricks are cool, OK?! Doesn't matter what schoolyard bullies say.
To prove this point, here's a video of grown men performing mesmerizing moves with nothing but their hands and the taut strings of Yo-yos. This is no mere "Walk the Dog" or "Sleep" that any basic Yo-yo kid can pull off. These are the crafty art pieces of true Yo-yo masters. Actually, those beginner tricks are pretty hard, too.
It's a compilation of the best of the Yo-yo community on Reddit known as "Throwers," and it's six minutes of magic that will make your hand-eye coordination seem completely inadequate. So much beauty on so little string.
