Viral Star Claims His Behind-the-back Throws Are Legit: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Josh Hawkins, a 30-year-old youth pastor at St Paul`s church in Castle Hill, became an internet sensation overnight when a video of him throwing things into place went viral.


So far the video, which he posted on Monday, has had almost five million views but has also featured on websites such as Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, Reddit, the NBC in the US and Sunrise, where it has been viewed around 10-15 million times.

The video features Mr Hawkins throwing items behind his back into place, such as a toothbrush into a toothbrush holder, a cd into a DVD player, a carton of milk into the fridge, bread into the toaster, toilet paper onto a roll, a plate into the dishwasher and a knife into a knife holder."

There are plenty of skeptics, including myself, but Hawkins insists all of the throws are real, and he concedes some took several tries. It must have taken a gazillion attempts, and hundreds of hours for Hawkins to have filmed all the tricks in his viral video, or just a few minutes digitally manipulating the video.  

This youth pastor is either a Photoshop master, or he`s a greater miracle worker than Jesus, but one thing is for sure: True Christians should stay the hell away from his church.

This con artist is seeking only Internet fame; there is no mention of Jesus in his video. As a minister of the Gospel, shouldn`t he be preaching Jesus, and leaving himself out of the picture?
