with all respects to JO, I find these videos very uncomfortable to watch. he looks like a monkey.

"impersonated some table tennis players"? more like disrespecting those players.

An Impersonation is a humorous exaggeration of a person's unique traits. If you wanted to impersonate Waldner, you wouldn't just do FH loops though that's probably how he won a lot of his points. If you find this disrespectful, I think that you'll find pretty much all (good) impersonations disrespectful.

I got hairy arms and Korean usually have zero hair there, so I have been called a Monkey a LOT over there !!

Also, I have called my National Association... DRUNKEN Monkeys more than once too.

It's OK.

In video 2, I recognize him impersonating Tibor Klampar. His sloped shoulders, straight forearms and awesome top/sidespin are very evident.
