The first few dozen times you watch the 14-year-old from Pakistan do his head turning trick it’s unnerving.
Actually, it’s kind of freaky, to be honest.
Muhammad Sameer, the ‘human owl’ uses both hands to help rotate his head way back over his shoulders. And as I’m watching him in the video repeatedly doing this I keep thinking to myself he’s gonna break his neck. OMG.
Muhammad is from the southern Pakistani City of Karachi, and he’s hoping this unique talent lands him in a Hollywood movie.
The teenager said: “I would have been six or seven when I saw an actor in a Hollywood horror movie turning his head to look behind him.”
“It fascinated me. I started practicing for it, and within few months, I was able to it.”
“My mother slapped me when she saw me doing this and told me never to do it again as I might end up hurting my neck but with time she realized that I’m God gifted.”
“My dream is to work like that actor in Hollywood horror movies.”
Muhammad also performs in a dance group across Karachi, he’s the sole family breadwinner since his father fell ill.
“I work so that I can support my family. I don’t want that due to lack of resources my four sisters do not have to quit studies,” says Muhammad.
He added: “I am working on my dance skills, gymnastic stunts, and acting skills as well in order to find better work opportunities to support my family and fulfill my dream. I hope to show my talent in big screens someday.”
