  • Description

    Titles read: "A Writing phenomenon!"

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of 18-year-old John Bowd writing on a blackboard. He writes the word 'Pathe' backwards with both hands simultaneously, then writes it backwards with the left hand and forward with the right. Then forward with the left and backwards with the right.

    On a clean board he writes 'Pathe' upside-down with the left hand and right side up with the right. Turning the blackboard around he writes 'ambidextrous' vertically. He lastly writes a quote from Shakespeare's 'Merchant of Venice', writing different sections with both hands simultaneously. How does he do it?!
