July 19 (UPI) -- A professional magician showed off his card-throwing skills by performing a series of difficult trick shots.
Smith forcefully tossed playing cards to slice a variety of food items, such as a banana, a carrot, a stick of celery and an olive.
He also managed to use the cards to pop balloons from various distances, including a trick he named the "upper decker party popper," in which threw a card at a balloon on a deck from the floor below and caused it to release confetti upon popping.
Smith showed off his precision by cutting off the wick of a lit candle to extinguish its flame and tossing cards into a styrofoam board along the outline of a man's body.
For his finale, Smith launched a card at a light bulb with enough force to cause it to burst in to pieces.
