Lars Andersen is about to blow your mind. He claims the way Hollywood depicts archery is extremely inaccurate… does that really come as a surprise to anyone? Lars has studied hundreds of ancient texts, manuscripts, and images to gain a better understanding of the techniques and tactics that archers used in ancient times. He later applied his knowledge and is now capable of firing 3 arrows in just .6 seconds!

According to his press release“For thousands of years, the bow and arrow was used for war. Those days are long gone, and most people today only know of archery through TV and movies. However, as the Danish archer Lars Andersen has proved, Hollywood archery has very little to do with actual war archery.”

His latest video, featured above, debunks several myths Hollywood tries to pass off as truth. Not only does he break down these myths, the video also features impressive tricks like grabbing an arrow in mid-air and firing it back at the enemy. To see his ultimate archery trick however, you’re going to have to watch the full video!
