It might all be in the glasses.

He's probably legit, I've seen people make bubbles out of their eyes, even airstreams to the point where you could feel the airflow, so it follows that this is the next "logical" step. If such a word as "logic" be used for such a feat...

Old Carney guys will tell you that this is an old, albeit not frequently seen, bit. It is pretty legit. Air from the tear ducts is a pretty common phenomenon. Training yourself to maximize the phenomena is the real work.

Walt Hudson writes of knowing one such lady whose trick was to blow smoke from her tear ducts.

And if you are unfortunate enough to perforate an eardrum you can blow smoke from your ear.
Life is too important to take seriously.

yep...there's a Guinness world record holder squirting about 10 feet

I'm thinking the glasses may be gaffed, too...because they'd have to be perfectly sealed around the head and I'm not sure if there's enough pressure thru the tear duct to inflate a balloon...

Until we see a real picture of this guy inflating a balloon with his eyes, we'll just have to guess, I guess.

Regardless, it says he's the only one to do it in China...

Browsing through old posts when this caught my eye (see what I did there?)

Original link doesn't seem to work anymore, but found this:
