Mind. Blown.
This technique works best with mandarin oranges, but just for good measure I tried it out on a Valencia orange as well. Simply lop off the ends, make a small incision in the side and carefully open to reveal easy-to-eat orange segments. (Or as I prefer to call it, an orange caterpillar.)

Is this what's called a "meme"?

If you're slicing ends with a knife, are you still really "peeling"?

Probably the second or third time I'd ever met my MIL, I opened a pepper like this...

I've cooked every thanksgiving dinner since.
Evidently she'd been scraping out the seeds with a spoon her whole life.

Oh dear. How embarassing. I hope you were graceful and made a laugh of it with her.

Presumably, if you're doing that to a tangerine, you're even less competent than the gif-maker. Tangerines peel themselves with just a small pull on the skin.

And Valencias are juice oranges, not intended for peeling, anyway.
