    Looks like this applies to any kind of open-ended hooked object. I’ve been trying to spin my sunglasses on my finger for a long time to no avail, but watching him do it clarified the process and now I’m spinning like a pro!

    Practice this using your flatmate’s toothbrush… so when it lands in the toilet you’ll not have to buy a new one for yourself.

      When you turn it on, part of it spins, though on a different axis.  Less likely to wow your friends, but still spinning.

    I discovered I could do this with my toothbrush as a child back in about 1980.  Longer bristles and smaller diameter fingers make it easier, as do wet bristles for that little extra grip.  Still got it:

    If you sharpen the end on that thing, you might have just invented a cool drinking game.

      hahahah if things don’t go right as a youtuber/juggler/videomaker I’ll try that. I really enjoy cooking, but only as a hobbie.

    “Spinning your toothbrush” just became a new eupheism.

    For what ? Only you can know.

    Back in the early 60’s I had a plastic toy called a Twirl-a-Cane which was the same size as a toothbrush and shaped like a tiny hockey stick.  I think it came out of a cereal box.  It had a weight and shape that made it very easy to twirl on your finger.  I wonder if the inventor got the idea from a spinning toothbrush?

  13. I’m the one who needs to thank you for spreading it!

    As I told you, I’m an independent videomaker that creates videos about juggling, object manipulation and circus arts, mostly.
    It’s not really easy to get your content viewed these days.

    for the ones who don’t really appreciate it, try to check the artistic videos.
    you may enjoy it.


    All the best.
