Annabella Almeida had 30 seconds of fame in 1994 on The Late Show with David Letterman. At that moment, the popular programme had a little segment called “stupid human tricks”. She participated with one pretty incredible.
She managed to spit a gum out of her mouth and then suck it back. It sounds silly, but when you see it is jaw-dropping. That was Letterman’s reaction, who couldn’t stop saying “how do you do that?”.
She was then a high school student at New Jersey. After the show, she never came back to TV. Until now.
In a homemade video recorded some weeks ago, a much older Annabella showed that she could still do the same trick. “I can still do this after 20 years. I have great lungs”, she said. It wasn’t a lie.
