Best magic video ever?


So, I put this out on Twitter last week and many folks (including Derren Brown) seemed to enjoy it.  I believe that it might be the greatest magic video ever.  What do you think?

    Why the heck that fat ugly women would dress in tiny suit like that. So ugly!!!

    • Bert says:

      Moreover, what’s with this ridiculous fad of people beginning every single blog post, tweet or even spoken sentence with “So…”?

  2. Brian Eite says:

    Wow! how did he do that. I was completely stumped and enthralled.

  3. Tony says:

    Aaah! The goggles, they do nothing!

  4. The Pick Man says:

    It might have been impressive if he had taken the hoop off at the far end. Otherwise, rubbish!

  5. Stevenz says:

    There is at least one obvious way to explain how it’s done, and probably dozens others.

  6. says:

    Hey Richard, what am I missing? …this seems to be totally below your level.

      I agree with you completely. it is barely mediocre at best, Maybe Richard has been into the rum cookies or tainted Egg Nog. It’s like “Dancing with the Stars.” Has nothing to do with dancing. This has nothing to do with “Magic.” Let’s get serious kids!

    • Kristian says:

      It’s clearly a joke. Atleast I laughed. A bit of a mockery though, if it wasn’t recorded for comedy.

  7. Dylan says:

    it seems like a strange table with only two legs, in fact he didn’t take off the hoop at the other end. maybe something else, perhaps it may work

    No, not the best magic video ever. Not even the best magic video this morning.

  9. Jose says:

    Richard , are you jocking , doesn´t it? Seems more a humor interpretation.

  10. Marcao says:

    Definitely the best magic video ever! Just ignore the toilet on the left, and the fact that the magician is whispering orders to her… Or the fact that he never addresses the audience, or that you cannot actually see the trick.. Other than that, it’s brilliant. (These vids are so much fun)

  11. Franklin says:

    I think the toilet in the background sort of makes it quite special!

  12. Tom Paine says:

    It’s called irony, folks. 😉

  13. Lazy T says:

    Maybe the magic trick was that the lady on the ironing board managed to stay in her costume?

  14. Richard says:

    What!? No one mentioned the fact that when the suspension is complete he lifts the end of the board the lovely assistant is lying upon to rest it on the chair. Apparently, the foot end has sagged a bit. And that the hoop is a hoola hoop wrapped in aluminum foil. I would almost bet this is NOT a professional magician or illusionist – despite the professional looking venue.

  15. Barry Goddard says:

    I am disappointed at the sour gripes emanating from the commenters here, especially at xmas time too. People who have probably never sewn a lady in half making dispersing remarks at a magician who at least is trying to bring a little wander to our lives at this time of season. Shame on you!

  16. Mervulon says:

    Ha! Now THAT’S entertainment!

  17. Frank says:

    I was a bit disappointed. With her mask and “costume,” I was expecting some porn.

  18. Am I missing the British humor of this? Are we the subjects of an experiment? Are you testing whether we will be influenced by the reference to Derren Brown? While the foreshortening effect of the video is slightly interesting, it does not rise to the level of the worst of your own personal magic videos.

  19. Henry says:

    Richard, I hope your tongue got stuck in your cheek for several hours after you posted this one.

  20. The other Matt says:

    I think its a test how we react (on a suggestion ?). There are clips on Youtube with many views, but just only because the title includes an interesting word, eg. “Best…….ever !!!” or “(The name of a singer / band) – COVER”

    Better watch this, its genius:

    • Greg says:

      Agreed. Greatest magic trick ever. I now believe! Elves and fairies, big foot, the Loch Ness monster, Zule….

  21. Lachlan Moss says:

    I can’t think of a superlative that conveys how lame that was.

  22. Terry Hornsby says:

    Wow! The clock in the bathroom changed five times and no one noticed it!

    Just about the best piece of misdirection I’ve ever seen.

  23. Joe Bruin says:

    What so special about that? It’s just a classic suspension trick poorly performances by a Wierd couple.
