Video: Shunsuke Nakamura knocks bride and groom figurines off cake with impressive wedding trick shot

Posted by Chris Wright

He may be getting on a bit these days, but former Celtic set-piece specialist Shunsuke Nakamura is still toiling away in the J-League with his hometown club Yokohama F-Marinos at the grand old age of 35.

That said, with one eye on his post-professional career, Nakamura also does a nice little sideline in free kick trick shots on various Japanese gameshows in which he turns up and whips dead balls into various objects, up to and including the open windows of moving buses.

Nakamura's latest challenge saw the former Japanese international tasked with demonstrating his famously pin-point accuracy by knocking the small bride and groom figurines off the top of a large wedding cake from a distance of 20 yards or so without so much as smudging the icing.

Of course, he duly went and did it at the first time of asking...

As wedding entertainment goes, that's probably the most impressive we've ever seen!
