An Israeli man has turned serving falafel into a performance art.

Brightening up the internet on what is otherwise a bleak news week, a longtime falafel shop owner is seen in a YouTube video masterfully throwing the ground-chickpea balls in the air so fast, you can barely see them land in the pita bread he’s holding up in his other hand. He shows off a similar trick with the fries, too. And his face shows utter joy.

People are unsurprisingly in awe of his mad skills — since being posted Thursday, the video has amassed nearly 210,000 views.
