Jack Ma may have co-founded Alibaba, but is he a true e-commerce expert? 

A skit aired during Saturday night's four-hour-long Tmall Singles' Day Gala attempted to answer that question by featuring the soon-to-be-retired billionaire competing against Alibaba 'masters' in a series of supply chain challenges. 

In the video, Ma tried (and failed) to box up Tmall orders:

This isn't the first time we've seen Ma perform stunts for the Singles' Day Gala. Ma acted alongside Jet Li in a 20-minute kung fu video for last year's e-commerce extravaganza.
