For Street Magician David Blaine Even the Simplest Magic Trick is ‘Cool’
Street magician David Blaine has been performing jaw-dropping acts of magic and illusion for years. That's all well and good, but I've never been as entertained by anything Blaine has done as much as when I watched this short clip of Blaine showing a kid a magic trick in a trailer park.
Watch and see if you enjoy this as much as I did.
I have to confess, it's not the trick that is so awesome about the video. I think the magician may have accomplished a certain degree of hypnosis on his subject.The kid stares blankly, mesmerized with his mouth open by the fact that the quarter is gone from sight, and can muster up no response more than "Cool". He is also apparently unable to move his hand from the position it was in when the quarter left.
Blaine waving his hands in the kids face a couple extra times for good measure is an added bonus. I'm not sure exactly what he was trying to accomplish there, but it makes me laugh.
If you think this video is dumb, it will only took 52 seconds out of your life. And David Blaine may well be able to make it magically reappear!
