Japanese Man Contorts Face to Make the Alphabet

Kouki Watanabe isn't your typical Japanese college student. He has a special skill: He can make the alphabet with his face.

On a recent episode of Osaka television show Detective! Knight Scoop, the 21 year-old Watanabe showed off his "kamen arufabetto" (顔面アルファベット), or "face alphabet." The show specified that this was the English alphabet (英語のアルファベット), with each letter called out in English for Watanabe to perform.

While in high school, he discovered he could contort his face into the letter J. And from there, he attempted to complete the rest of the alphabet. However, he's still unable to do N and Z.
