A man’s bizarre ability to recite the entire alphabet song backwards has impressed online and has gone viral with over 4 million views.
The video, shared by Tanner Harvey, shows what he calls the “best party trick I’ve ever seen” as friend Geoff Jensen proudly recites the alphabet backwards into his phone.
Recorded in the back of a driving tour bus, the group of men is the band for the musician Denm, who currently plays all over the country – hence the tired mood for them all.
Jensen lay relaxed and managed to recite the entire alphabet backwards, but it only became clear what he had done after. Instead, it looked as if Jensen was speaking a mix between Volapük and Russian, as many viewers noticed.
He even changed the rhythm of that backwards song, in an attempt to recreate the authentic melody of the alphabet song. Jensen then proudly played the recording high upside down for his friends, revealing the full alphabet recitation in a tone that many said still sounds Russian, despite being American.
Jensen even managed to put the finishing touches on adding “Now I know my ABCs, next time you will not sing with me,” to the end.

The crazy skill has impressed online and gained over 800,000 likes in just four days. “I win,” he shouted at the end of the video.
Harvey joked in a comment that his friend was actually “an alien”, making it the only plausible explanation for many.
“I love that the guy next to him woke up just to laugh,” commented one user, noting that his friend suddenly got up after playing the alphabet recording.
“How many times is too many times to see this,” wrote another viewer.
“It’s simply amazing and a quality I now want to look for in men. Thank you very much,” joked a TikTok user.
“I love that he sounds Russian back and forth,” one user added.
“This is the biggest I’ve ever seen,” claimed another impressed viewer.

Phillips jumped over five London cabins in England and broke the previous world record of four. The moment was uploaded to Guinness World Records (GWR) Instagram, where it, like Harvey’s video, went viral.
“Standing at almost 2m [6.5 feet] high and 1.6m [5.2 feet] wide, the five electric London cabs made for challenging obstacles, “GWR said on its website.
