Man’s ingenious mango-cutting technique will positively blow your mind

The first 70 percent of the video below is, to be frank, rather boring.

It’s just a dude using what looks to be a machete peeling a mango, and although his precision and ability to not hack off his own fingers are impressive, that’s not why this YouTube video is titled “Great mango cutting style.”

What’s really impressive and surprising is what occurs in the final 25 seconds of the video. No matter how you feel about the first 46 seconds, stick it out until the end—because that’s when the video really blossoms. 

Cool trick, dude.
