This podgy youth pastor has gone viral with his incredible videos showing off his improvised trick shots including bouncing a CD off a wall and into a gaming console or throwing a sweet into a coke bottle from the top of stairs before sliding down to stop the coke from spraying over the walls.

Brian James Swoager, 40, who has 1.6 million followers on TikTok, told Newsflash: “I’m a student pastor and I downloaded TikTok because my students told me I couldn’t go viral!”

Brian proved his doubtful students wrong after his trick-shot videos started to get shared around social media by Netizens enjoy his incredible throwing ability as much as his over the top reactions.

In several of his clips, Brian throws pens, sweets or ping-pong balls into bottles from the top of a staircase and then flies down the stairs as he celebrates making the seemingly impossible shot.

He said: “I didn’t think they would go viral like they did but it’s been pretty fun.”

Out of all the video, he says: “The stair slide is my favourite though!” in these trick shots he often throws ping-pong balls into cups from the top of a staircase and then slides down the stairs as he celebrates.

He said: “All my trick shots are real, I have no special effects! My celebrations are real too, I get lucky and this is just how I celebrate.”

Netizen ‘Sara Olsen’ reacted to one of his TikToks saying: “Your excitement makes me so happy, its really contagious.”

Other Netizens reacted in disbelief at many of the shots calling him a “sharpshooter” and saying he deserves even more views and subscribers than he already has.

Brian explained that “most challenges don’t take more than 5 minutes but some have, but it’s super fun because my kids like to help me and they try to do them as well.”

He added that the fact his kids love to join and help him only loves making the clips even more.
