Real life Gambit blows things up by throwing playing cards

Growing up, I never wanted Cyclops' optic blast or Wolverine's adamantium claws or Magneto's power over magnetic fields, I wanted to throw cards like Gambit. I don't know if that makes me an unimaginative little kid who only dreamt about realistic powers but I do know I spent many summer days throwing cards at everything. Sadly, I never grew up to be like Gambit. This guy, comedian Javier Jarquin, did though. Watch him throw playing cards with incredible accuracy and enough strength to break glass.


It's all an ad for Pepsi Max so please do your best to ignore the unnecessary slow takes and expertly placed Pepsi Max cans and just imagine being a kid and meeting the real life Gambit. He needs a trench coat, though.

Look ripe for a Mythbusters show, are they real playing cards or are they show biz cards? Hard plastic or wood, perhaps painted metal?
