    IT IS A HOAX!

    if u watch closely he is gona fall over some 5 times but doesnt that proves its a fake.
    I mean fall over thats NOT part of the demonstration of his balancing skills, but he is gona fall over for real.

    I think it is prob a control line hoax where he is supported by thin wires invisible to camera because he oscillates very suspiciously

    Looks like the YouTube video is just very poor quality.
