Chancellor Mike Wartell shows off his mad ninja yo-yo skillz. He can do "rock the baby" "walk the dog" "man on the flying trapeze" "around the world."

Shooter's Comments: This was a very quick shoot because Chancellor Mike Wartell was on his way to a meeting, but he was still able to show me some of his tricks on the yo-yo.

He performed while I quickly shot a few photos with fill flash. I then shot a quick video. Of course, the yo-yo malfunctioned a few times, since we were short on time.
