The secret that lies beneath all magic tricks and illusions is that people actually do want to be tricked and to believe in magic. The voice of reason tells us that it is simply impossible to saw a woman in half and then just glue her back together. Nonetheless, we smile joyously as children and give the magician a round of generous applause. We’re sorry to upset you, but this video is going to shatter a myth of the existence of magic as it reveals a few secrets of some world-renowned illusionists. So, these are 5 famous magic tricks revealed.

Thanks, now I'll never look at any magic trick the same because of that thumbnail and this entire video. I liked it better when I could actually ENJOY the magic tricks. But now I can only watch the magic shows and just be like, "now that I know how it works, I'm no longer impressed" you said it yourself at the end of the video, "it's better to let people believe that it's magic" and what do you do? You reveal magic tricks. So ya, THANKS! I'm never gonna be able to enjoy magic shows anymore. I don't care if I get all the dislikes in the world on this comment and I don't care if you block me or you delete this comment because I only speak MY opinion. Congratulations on ruining the fun in magic tricks. You deserve a reward for 'ruining magic tricks' because you earned it!
Sincerely,
Someone who's no longer impressed by magic tricks

One of the best magic tricks in the world isn't considered magic by most of the people witnessing it.

When you think about it, both Democrats and Republicans are working in a very bipartisan manner to bankrupt America with titanic debt while pretending to be two distinct political parties with opposing public policy agendas while pitting Americans against one another in a grand scheme of divide and conquer.

Isn't being fooled by magic fun kids?

Copperfield is a master; great use of props, music, pyro and showmanship. This one isn't hard to figure out though. The helmet is the key. Notice that once he puts it on, he never removes it or lifts the visor. Right before the lift apparatus is revealed, there is a brief moment where he disappears behind the curtain. A switch takes place. Someone with the same helmet, jacket and build as Copperfield is the one elevated, while David is running through the bowels of the arena to the reveal point. When the pyro goes off, something obscures cycle 1 and Not David from view, while David and bike 2 are revealed elsewhere.

>I've always wondered how David Copperfield walked through the Great Wall,

side) of the stairs when they are rolled away by two (!) people. You can
also watch that the helpers are carefully never stepping on the zone

although I am not sure how it is done (could be a film). DC's
"temporarly" reappearance is done by the two people holding the elastic
cloth themselves.
I got an e-mail from a reader of my document, who saw even more. There
is something black on the top stair, which is later inserted. This is
the cover of the stairs !! You can also see a ladder somewhere. Guess
why...DC hides in the stairs. You can watch the weird form (wider on the

the
spotlight above (behind) the box (but not too close). Now draw a line
from
the light to each side of the front of the box (ie: the screen). Note
the
spaces. If DC moves across the line closest to the Great Wall of China
(in
the illusion), he will appear to (on the screen) walk into the wall...

D1 = David
S = David's Shadow

D2 = David when you can't see him - He's "inside the wall"

That one is of course correct when he exits the wall, but not for
entering, since [my theory is that] he's already in the stairs at that
time.
:

- The real rose comes out of the suit pocket, while you are blinded by
the fire (--> optical misdirection);
- When the paper rose is hanging "freely" in the air, I could once see
(on TV, but not from DC) two "visible" thread in V-form. That
magician had IMO made mistake: 1. wearing a black jacket, 2. not
having instructed the camera man.

A magician told me that the trick is really difficult to learn (and I
believe this !), and that there are two variations. One with, one
without standing microphone.

"It's all done with mirrors".

That is the standard meaningless explanation of how effects are
done. Yet, quite a lot CAN be done with mirrors. The key to most mirror
effects is a combination of a basic law of physics, combined with
expectations that defy the laws of physics.

The principle is that the angle of incidence equals the angle of
reflection. This means that if you look at a mirror at a 45 degree
angle, you will see a reflection of what's 45 degrees on the other side
of a line perpendicular to the plane of the mirror. But people expect,
when they look into a mirror, to see their own reflection, regardless of
the angle of the mirror. As a result, if the mirror reflects what the
audience expects to see BEHIND the mirror, they will be unaware that
there is a mirror there.

This goes further; a properly angled mirror with a transparent
but distorting surface in front of it will make it seem to the audience
that they can see through the object, when they are actually seeing a
mirror. One good example of this is putting a mirror in a glass. The
glass should cut with a non-smooth pattern, so that you can't REALLY see
behind it, even without a mirror. Yet the audience will believe that
they are looking at a transparent glass, allowing the magician to hide
all sorts of things behind the mirror.

The key to a mirror trick is for the audience to not suspect
that
there is a mirror there. That is a basic part of ANY trick with a
hidden
gaff. The magician must direct attention away from the gaff; far too
many say, "I have here an ORDINARY glass", actually fixing the
audience's
attention to the glass. Far better is to not even mention the glass,
but
treat it as you would a truly ordinary glass; it is not mentioned
because
it is not worthy of mention. Pull this off, and the audience may not
even remember that a glass was involved.

METAMORPHISIS

(why is it that everyone thinks magic is
either twins or mirrors?) This is a pretty old trick... Ever notice that
there were no inspections at all? probably no back to the trunk with a
plank.. anyway... so they tied the first pendragon and put him in a bag
with a hole in the bottom. They close up. (plenty of time to take off
whatever binds you) then watch the spotlight for standing up of your
partner... jump up when the cloth is partway up then throw it up... grab
the cloth and move it as soon as your partner drops down into the plank
from the trap door. Then take your time and let your partner change
bathing suits. (wish all girls could change that fast :-) then your
partner just puts on the ropes... handcuffs.. whatever in time to stand
up
and take a bow....
DISSAPEARING GIRL
Question: Where did DC hide the two girls in his Disappearing Girl(s)
illusion?

Standard answer: He uses the special thicker-than-they look tables to
hide them in the table.

Well, I know they have to be somwhere (probably in the table), but let
me ask some further questions.

I did some measurements of the thickness of the table plus the thickness
of the bottom of the blue box sitting on the top of the table. I simply
put a ruler on my TV monitor and compared the measurement with DC's
body (to have a scale). The total thickness is about 8-9" but not more.
Since they turned the table by 360 degrees, the table cannot be made
thicker at one end and thinner at the other end, neither can it it be
lense shaped as some may try to argue. So, can you really squeeze two
adults
into such a small space????

If you watch other illusions based on those special tables, such as the
Death Saw or Shrinking (by DC), the thickness roughly corresponds to
what I would expect. But in the Disappearing Girl illusion, my
measurements
simply do not agree with common sense.

I too don't know where the girls come from. I also don't know where the
girl (the one with DC's haircut) is in the Origami box - although that
girl is very anorexic.

BTW, would you agree with me that DC uses a false head (!) for the
"shrink-box" ? DC's head can't be seen for a short time when going up
and down, and the move is kindof "out-of-sequence".

Another mystery is DC's disappearance in the Alcatraz video at the end.
The table does not have a thick top - but he's gone! The only thing I
could suspect is an "angle trick" (which means that he goes away behind
that cardboard, and every real audience member could see it), and that's
about nothing.

A similar case is a disappearance (or was it an appearance ?) in "father
and son" at the end of the 1985 video. No thick table top there eithe

>Everyone has seen the oldest magic trick in the world... where a person
>is put in a small box and the box is cut in half, leaving the head and
>feet visible, in two separate boxes (very small boxes!).

Not the oldest. There was a "thick model" in the thirties, which was
exposed just too often. Some day (anyone knows when / who ?) the "thin"
model was invented.

The "secret" is not in the height of the boxes, but in the width,
although one inch may be "won" by using a "thick bottom". The assistant,
Miss Anorexia Smallhips, has to lay on the left side and fold herself in
the "head" half. The "foot" half contains two dummy feet (they often
move so regularly that it makes me laugh !). Notice that the table has
always to be turned for the feet switch to take place.

BUZZ SAW

>DC is bent at the waist and his legs are stuffed into the table.a thick tabletop is used. (measure it, and you'll have
about 15 - 20 cm !!!). People don't care about the tabletop because it
just "looks bulky and solid". (Hey, those illusions are hand-crafted !).
On the left, DC is in a "frog position". On the right, another person is
lying with feet in the air,

DC CARD TRICKS
Two tricks need that a specific card is picked: DC's card-on-sketchpad,
and DC's gun shoots card.

>From the audience point of view, it goes like this: the magician fans apack of big cards, shows that the cards are different (why should
someone doubt this - I don't know <g>). The audience member has to tip
her/his finger on the back of the card. The magician changes the pack so
that the audience members is now holding his finger on the top card, and
hands him that card.

As I said, in the tricks where I saw this, it is important that a
specific card is chosen. "forcing" would not work with a TV camera.

Here's my guess: card pairs. The bottom cards of the pairs are
different, the top cards are alike. The connecting surfaces are raw or
sticky, so that the pairs don't separated


THE BLADE
The reconnection of the halves is suspicious, but could also be there to
fool the I-know-how-it-is-done people. "Chad Long" said in alt.magic
that he saw the tricks with both halves opened at the same time, and a
reader (not lurker of this group) said that the halves were opened after
another.
