David B brought my attention to this lovely clip.  It is very short, very simple, but very powerful.


  1. that is very good magic, thank you mr wiseman. she vanished leaving only shoes. out in open with no obvious camera cuts. v. puzzling indeed.

  2. until I read the comments I thought the lady was some kind of fractal genetic mutant, thanks for setting things straight

  3. Loved the illusion, after seeing the answer I re-watched to see the obvious tell. But it still looked OK. Great!

  4. Perfect Girlfriend? Perfect like “not a real person”? I know I’m being sensitive but these days it’s a real struggle for women to be treated with dignity. Just sayin’.

  5. just thought, was the producer thinking that his hands do a better job than a real girlfriend?….tee hee 🙂

  6. Hat dies auf Pfeffermatz rebloggt und kommentierte:
    Letztens habe ich die Seite von Richard Wiseman entdeckt, der sich viel mit Illusion und psychologischen Tricks beschäftigt. Insbesondere sammlet er auf seinem Blog allerlei schöne und spannende Videos anderer Leute. Folgendes sehr kurze Video ist einfach nur nett anzuschauen und doch ein klein bisschen überraschend. Viel Spaß!
