This year at MA States, amid the usual mid-contest raffle-off giveaways and stalling shenanigans, a new event was introduced: Air Yo-Yoing Freestyles.
Hosted by Ooch, the competitors were Evan, Jason, and YoYoNews’ own Ed Haponik, with judges Eric Koloski and Ethan Bein.
Similar to Air Guitar, this awkward freestyle showcase required competitors to do their routines without their yo-yos, and the results were hilarious:
In the end, Evan came out on top and won a YoYofficer Eager. We knew he had it from the moment he checked his imaginary string tension.
But that didn’t stop Ed from trying to sway the judges, busting out the craziest invisible yo-yo trick that shouldn’t be possible (except Shu Takada just did it).
