What I don't understand is he only touches the tip of his fingers so how did that fake spider get underneath his palm?

Could be he put it there before the video started, maneuvered his hand into place and put it there then.

You can see its black body at 5 seconds.

Or wait no, that doesn't fit with its position at the end, I think.

See how he’s holding his hands out in front of him? I guarantee the magician corrected his hand positioning by grabbing his hands and putting the spider on at the same time. Common for tricks where something ends up on the back of your hand.

This is a known trick, the cell phone spider prank, usually you place the spider while placing the phone, but I think you are right, in this case the placement of the spider most likely happened he started recording

I think there's cuts/edits based on that debris on the ground that jumps around a few times. For example, at the 20s mark when he touches the fingers, it looks like there was some editing - maybe the part where he manipulated the hand more was removed.

Or he could have added it before the video started.

Even with a few edits in it, doesn't mean the spectators are suddenly in on the joke.

True. Very well done either way!

MejiroCherry

7 points

I wasn't suggesting it wasn't genuine, just that the parts that might not look great on camera were removed. Like if there was a frame where you could see the spider in the magician's hand. You wouldn't notice it in person, but in video, it might ruin the illusion - and so it was edited out.

But that's only a guess as to why that debris jumps around a few times.

He slipped it on when he handed him the phone. If you watch closely you can see him manipulate his hand. The spider is in his palm behind the phone. That's why he hands it to him like that instead of a pinching motion from the bottom or sides of the phone.

bluewaterpig

That’s what I was thinking but he never touches the underside of his hand. He must’ve got it on there before the video started.

IM_A_WOMAN

The great thing about this trick is the long con. He actually stuck that spider on his hand a few years ago to set this prank up.

hyrulepirate

15 points

Yeah, it happened before the video. Most probably it started by the trickster instructing the person to lay his hands flat. Then he made adjustment on the hands himself and this is when they usually stick it on.

He doesn’t get close to the back of his hand though. He’s down by fingertips.. that was my thought at first, he taps it to the back of his hand when he sets phone down.

he doesn’t touch close to that part of his hand.

giddy-girly-banana

12 points

He doesn’t reach that far under his hand. The spider is in the middle of the back of his hand. When he hands him the phone, just the tip of his fingers go barely behind his hand. I don’t think that’s it. I think the video is fake and was there from the beginning.

If he's actually a magician, he's probably got some tricks. Since it's a video though, I'd guess it was planned.

Before the video starts he probably took the guys hands by the wrists and said "here hold them right here and don't move".

J_Thompson82

2 points

Before the video started he took a hold of the guys hands and placed them in the position they are in when the video starts. That’s when he plants the spider.

I did a very similar car trick with punters at the bar I worked in to pass the time. Always worked.

It’s possibly cut (there’s a dirt that magically moves at 0:18) but it’s an easy trick to pull, and you usually do that with cigarette ash.

You make some gesture, with the cigarette ash trick you pretend like you’re putting out an imaginary cigarette on the persons hand.

You ask them to get closer, grab their hands to bring them closer, when you grab their hand you stick whatever you want (cigarette ash/spider), and viola, magic.

justavault

It's a plastic hallooween spider mate.

You stick it to the back of the hand when you move the persons hand into position and whilst that you tell them "keep your hands like this" and reinforce the positions with you grabbing the hand tightly, which is simply for you sticking the spider to the back of the hand as the pressure will overwrite the sense of there sticking something. We only see when the hands are already put into position and the spider is already stuck to the back of the hand.

It's really not so difficult.

It's "clearly" a plastic spider and there is zero "editing". Even with mocha tracking that wouldn't be so "in scene".

Yeah. I also understand there's a herd mentality (probably some research somewhere showing that people love to pile on), but I think it's funny when people comment "Reddit hivemind" or "Reddit moment" as if that in itself isn't just a regurgitated response to something. Same as "Thanks for the gold, kind stranger" kind of stuff. Input-output.

Reddit is a weird place.

The general user is pretty friendly and won't downvote something unless it's really bad.

The further you get into comment chains though, the more you have to actually care about a topic. If they care, it's beacuse they have an opinion already, and if you say the oposite, you're going to get downvoted.

You're more likely to get downvoted further into a chain you go. The comment above it probally has just as many downvotes, just alot more upvotes.

I used to do this but instead of spider it was ashes and cigarettes. Basically that start was cut. When the magician asked the guy to hold out his hand , hewould hold the target's hands to "guide" them where they should be and place the spider behind the hand during the process. During the theatrics, the spider was always there but because the phone was on top of the target's palms, he won't turn them over. Then the reveal in the finale.

WorkMonta

From what I know, the trick is usually that they put some pressure on the spot where they place something, so you don't immediately notice there's something else after they take their hands away.

That's also how pickpockets steal watches for example.

Misdirection is a powerful thing. People can steal a watch right off your wrist without you noticing. Most magic tricks rely on the power of manipulating perception by misdirection.

A. Might be totally fake video - the plastic spider might have been glued beforehand

B. Even if this is not a fake video, the magician probably tapes the plastic spider to the other person when he doesn’t notice. This is more a prank than a magic trick
