Not quite the original, but you get the idea.

Never done it whilst singing but I used to do it after hours when we all used to pile back to someone's house after the pubs closed. The trick is to spread your fingers really wide, and try and keep near the tips. Never had an accident but I wouldn't do it now.

Not a wise thing to do if you value your future in the piano.

If you were thinking you'd have thought:

If I don't stick my hand in the way, but put targets (such as a small dot on a piece of paper) in similar places to the gaps between the fingers, I could achieve the same level of control through practice without risking hand destruction.

That video presents possibly the dumbest ideas I've ever seen.. ever..  everrrrr...

Infact, you know what else would work?

Using one hand to do fast switches between chords on the piano that are a reasonable distance apart. Plus that way you'd be more aware of all the problems you're creating with a potentially locked up wrist/arm.

You really do need to get out more.



Or the original version with guns. Though the video for that is a little more disturbing.

Obviously I know there are dumber ideas.

In any case, "egg" russian roulette will not cause physical harm...

Is there actually any legitimate footage of a real game of russian roulette publicly available?

It will humiliate you and in Russia losing your swag/mojo/ponpadour/poise is just as good as a death sentence.

With all the videos and the amount of people out there there must be.  And someone, lots of someones, have probably done that knife trick and failed.
