      Freeze at the 2:00 mark. Look at the “X” right under the guy’s wrist. It is way out of place for the paper pattern. Obviously an extra piece.

    If that’s a single piece of paper to start with, how do the letters “mi” from Premier manage to appear on *both* rings at around 50 seconds in?

  3. The title is right. It’s not possible to get the result by this procedure.

    Is that called a sleight of edit?

  6. I didn’t use CGI. It can be done live (sure, with the proper physical trick I used).

    Is this for real? Or a bloody good trick. My mind tells me it must be a trick but I suppose I’ll just have to try it out myself to make my mind up.
    I’ll let you know.

    Obviously impossible with a single sheet. Im guessing two identical sheets were used, and in preparation one ring was pre-made and pulled through a slit on the full sheet, and then taped to the not-yet-cut-out ring on both sides. I havent fully worked it out, but I think thats the gist of it.

  9. Anders says:

    Yup I think I have it worked out, I think the premade ring is slipped through the full page so that the footballers right underarm/stomach area is (roughly a 4×4 cm bit) is not part of the full sheet in the first shot, but a woven bit of a ring thats mostly underneath the sheet. The brilliant bit here is that the cutting actually cuts the invisible tape that keeps us from seeing the sticking though bit.

      When someone goes to the trouble to made a video, advertising that they know the procedure and offering the right explanation to the public. But when the public follow the instructions and it clearly doesn’t work, this is deceipt; unethical.

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Bless you!|

    So far, I have not heard from anyone who has made the impossible linking paper rings work. Some say two sheets are used. The point is, that one sheet is used and the instructions state one. In other words, this s trick is a sham and advertising something that is not. Mariano Tomatis, knows this full well, pulling our legs and teasing us all.
