Jose de Sousa scored an incredible 120 checkout with all double 20s, to win the opening leg of his match with Nathan Aspinall, and put commentator Wayne Mardle out of action.
De Sousa faced Aspinall on Thursday night in the final group stage round of the Premier League of Darts on Thursday night.
Both men were already secured of their places in the semi-finals on Friday and were going to meet each other once again, but it didn't stop 'the Special One' producing a special moment.
In the first leg of their match, the Portuguese star required a 120 checkout, with Aspinall waiting on 56 to finish, and instead of going for Shanghai, triple 20, single 20, double tops, the enigmatic De Sousa hit three double 20s.

Incredibly, commentator Wayne Mardle, who must have seen most things in darts considering his long career, was so impressed he lost his voice.
'Hawaii 501,' who famously lost all three of his major finals to Phil Taylor, took to Twitter to reveal he'll have to enjoy finals night from home because of it, instead of being in the commentary booth.
Unfortunately, due to Jose De Sousa being a complete madman I've lost my voice. ( hurrah I hear you say ). Hitting 3 double tops made me over do it! It's all his fault! I'm now only able to watch from home rather than be involved in Finals night. Enjoy the show! #STOPIT- Wayne Mardle (@Wayne501Mardle) May 28, 2021
De Sousa, playing in his debut season in the Premier League, went on to win the match 8-3, taking out 149 in the final leg.
The 2020 Grand Slam winner joins Aspinall, Johnny Clayton and five time Premier League winner Michael van Gerwen in the final four on Friday night.
MvG is the only previous winner left in the semi finals, whilst Aspinall is looking to go one better than last year, having lost in the final in his debut season.
