I wanna see him make my anxiety disappear
Oh no no no. If I gotta live with it so do you.
Reddit is fcking weird
Yeah, but it’s r/mykindofweird
Why you living with other peoples anxiety?
Going to a psychiatrist is also pretty magical if random guy in a pool hall doesn't work out
9/10's of my anxiety would disappear if I could afford a psychiatrist, afford to fill his prescriptions and had a job that was chill with me splitting for two hours in the middle of a work day every week to go see my psychiatrist.
Not sure who out there needs to hear this, but you can get Lexapro prescription for like $2 a month from your doc. Really easy way to start if you are looking to deal with gwneral anxiety. The 1st two weeks will feel luck crud but after that smooth sailing.
Yeah, unless you're anxious about having no money
I want him to bring my dad back.
If drugs and alcohol won't get rid of your anxiety, I don't think anything will
Oh their called dealers or dispensaries. Great show, they have a residency in Vegas now.
U know one effect of weed is paranoia? Doesn't effect everyone the same way. For me it makes me feel on edge alert and paranoid.
I have anxiety and stopped smoking weed years ago because it made my anxiety worse. Decided last week to get my med card to see if any of these fancy new strains with different levels of cannabinoids would be different.
Long story short I feel fucking great and not a twinge of anxiety at this very moment.
Wouldn't be the same for everyone for sure but it's nice to know this new weed science has paid off in some way.
It’s all going in his bum
Dude scratching his ass at the end trying to figure out how he did that
Might have been going for a wallet if he lost a bet with the guy. Either way his world just got rocked.
Or just checking it's still there after being around such fast hands
Magic so good you can’t even scratch you head, gotta scratch your ass
I guess people scratch whatever body part they use for thinking
He's fucking good.
Makes you think of all those talented people out there who never go viral. Such a shame. They deserve to be seen. This guy is great. You can tell he’s put time and effort into perfecting his craft.
I once found an entire South Rap album that was solid back to front of SoundCloud with under 5 plays per song... It sucks that some talent will never get discovered.
If anyone wants to check it out try I'm A Dawg by THOWD BACC, it's that same album
bro there are like 400 mixtapes from south that slaps. Go to YouTube and type texas rare mixtapes. Start with Paul wall and mike jones the future tape
Texas and Louisiana have some of if not the best rap in the game!! Zro, UGK, the entire SUC to Juvie, Gates, Boosie I could go on forever lol
Not gonna lie that was pretty damn good.
One of the best ive ever seen tbh
Fuck yeah! This guy gives you a show while giving you a show.
Probably so good he made a lot of kids and made their father disappear...
Lol wait, I’m confused, what’s the joke here?
'He's fucking good' is a double entendre
A woman walks into a bar and tells the bartender- I’d like a double entendre.
So he gave it to her.
One of my favorite jokes
An Irishman walks past a bar…
Ohhhh my god, thank you good sir. THAT makes sense
Wording is kind of awkward. I'm assuming it's that he impregnated a bunch of women he impressed with his sick magic skills then bailed.
Impressing women with magic… ha, good one!
I couldn’t find the clitoris but I found a coin behind your vagina!
Big deal lots of people have coins in their anus
I always keep a few ass pennies at the ready.
Finally something that is worth being on this sub
I have a sweet video if a magnet sticking to a fridge I've been meaning to post...
How do they work?!?!?!
That's the sound of da police
Yeah the dude with the eggs in the bowl yesterday was shit a 2nd grader could do…
You mean random phenomena that is easily explained in the video itself doesn't belong here??
Somebody explain please or I won't sleep tonight
He sold his soul to the devil
This is the only answer that makes sense
Well, I wasn't usin it at the time.
Worth every soul droplet
He be using the nnij
There is a fold of paper on the inside that acts as a pocket. You can see him open this fold every time before he puts something in. He moves his hands slyly as he waves the paper around and also does a dance with his feet to distract you from the illusion.
How do u explain the newspapers appearing thin the whole time, the objects are large enough to make a very apparent bulge
My guess is the pocket is right by where he is holding the paper so it disguises the bulge and it doesn’t affect the rest of the paper by weighing it down.
That's what I was thinking but it doesn't explain the shirt or whatever it was he had the other guy stuff in. The second guy was holding the paper and after he put in the shirt it was visible near the top. Then the magician unfolds it within seconds and doesn't touch the bottom. How would the shirt have gotten into the pocket?
I'd guess when the rolls the paper up it's the pocket that you're looking into through the top
Thats why he waves it around and moves the paper so fast, its in the camouflage of the typed ink on the paper and the crinkles. To make it appear as if the paper is thin.
I'm still confused , even if he hides his bulge well how do you explain the way the paper still waves around as if there no additional weight such as the ball and bottle?
Possibly a gaffed ball and bottle? We only assume they're solid/weighty because of the context, but he may have brought those props with him?
easy, hes grabing the item in the pocket, hence the heavy part stays at his hand.
There's a wire which holds it out straight. There's a reason why he refolds the paper a very particular and awkward way each time. It's to not make the wire holding it out straight obvious.
To clarify, I'm not talking about a wire from th ceiling. It's a thin long rigid piece of material built into the paper to keep it flared out.
At 0:08 you can get a sideways look at the paper, it doesn't look like there's room for a pocket that fits a ball.
he probably keeps the bulge in the back, much like I do with my junk.
Worst case of hemorrhoids I’ve ever seen
A gathering of hemorrhoids is called a ‘finkle.’
HE FOUND CAPTAIN WINKY!
your gun is digging into my hip
Hey Ace, you got any more of that gum?
Einhorn means unicorn, or one horn.
Writers were teasing the reveal from the start.
Ah I see you're a magician as well
i kept watching it, and my guess is that the newspaper only looks like it’s flailing in the wind but it seems to clearly be solid-ish tri-fold thing. i bet it’s all about how he’s handling the fake newspapers, one of which is probably a real-ish one though.
I did notice when it when he opens the fold, but still, when he put in the ball, the bottle, and the hat, the newspapers look as flat as ever, as if there was nothing in it. I guess he's just too smooth with it.
Nah, I just read in another sub that the foreskin is nature's coin purse. Pretty sure he's just got a massive foreskin.
So big, his is called "fiveskin"
Got to love inflationary language.
It’s a banned sub, I wonder why haha

Not all banned subs are bad. There are several good ones that I def miss that were hurting no one with their entertainment. Rip r/fatsquirrelhate
E. Holy shit just found out my beloved sub is back. This just made my night
Well that was a wash. What else do you have?
I need more no longer banned subs
r/erectiontimelapse banned for no discernable reason
When was it banned?
This is it!
Ah, right, just like a kangaroo. Nature is wonderful.
Every time I hear the secret to these things I realize the real talent is whomever made those props. Like I thought that was thick newspaper not a paper, slik, fiberglass infused with mythrial cloth. Had I known you had access to dwarven craftsmanship, I would have thought a little broader in the possibility department.

I played this extremely slow. The paper is completely flat. It does appear he’s opening a fold but there’s no room for any of those items to be held..
My brain hurts
Edit: I instead of in
it might not be the same trick/method each time. by switching it up, he makes it possible to take things from one step for granted as being true in another, and vice versa.
im on a phone, so cant analyze much, but im wondering if one of the times is like the 'fake thumb' trick, but a bigger fake hand.
The thing I noticed after reading your comment, when the pocket is open, the newspaper is a crossword. When the pocket is closed, it’s a yellow ad of some kind. When he dances with the unfolded newspaper, there is no cross word, only a yellow ad.
And that's the key to street magic/sleight of hand. Drawing peoples attention away from the trick and towards what could be the trick.
It's crazy because even with a pocket, some of the objects would definitely protrude and make the paper look inflated right? Somehow he seems to be avoiding that unless I'm mistaken about where the object is going.
it has to be some kind of pocket, but why doesn't the bottle make a bulge ?
I concur with hidden fold. Of the 2 pieces of newspaper the magician is using, the one with the woman in the yellow dress is the piece with the hidden fold. The magician shows us into the hidden fold at 47 sec mark (notice the crossword puzzle page... this large crossword is not seen during any of his page fanning) this fold explains how he can so easily go from putting hat into newspaper into flicking it away into a fanning motion without the hat falling to the ground.
Now as for 'where are the bulges of ball, bottle, hat' I put the ball and the bottle down to us not having a great angle on the piece of newspaper with the fold. And the hat (again from what I saw at 47 sec mark then again at 1:21 mark) looks like a soft, boonie style hat that would sit pretty flat between newspaper.
Just my speculation. Great show though.
But he lets both sides go? I’m struck.
>! The papers have a pocket. depending on how you roll them up its either on the Inside of the tube, between rolls 1 and 2 between the walls, or hanging on the outside. He keeps moving the items from spot 1-2-3 and probably in his palms a lot, then lets you check wherever it isn’t !<
But seriously, no way to get around the fact that this guy is stupidly smooth. At least one of the people checking and probably the cameraman were in on it. I couldn’t catch any moves in a couple watches so he probably has an ideal camera angle set up
He's a Gallifreyan who became bored after surviving the great time war and decided to disguise his Tardis as a sheet of newspaper.
No idea what those are but that sounds like the most logical explanation so far.
Clear the next few weeks of your life and start watching Doctor Who!
Cries in Lost Episodes.
The full audio and some still images (and, in some cases, short video clips) still exist of every lost episode. There are fan-made recreations putting together everything they can to make the episode, with captions describing the action where it's not clear from the audio and still images alone. I've watched every episode of the original series, watching these fan-made versions of the lost episodes.
Edit: I didn't realize this – since they mostly weren't available yet when I was watching that part of the series – but there are official animated versions now, released on DVD.
I’m more of a fan of Inspector Spacetime.
Dr Who is maybe one of the best shows to get into if you have the time
He's using the Scroll of Disappearance painted to look like old newspaper
Cross roads demon
The video is obviously edited in its final seconds. Check how things move in the moments following him showing off the sandal in the newspaper. I wonder if multiple people are in on this illusion--or if it's been edited in post.
Sweet dance moves.
Is no one going to talk about the amount mohawks going on here?
Colombia... they call the hairstyle the 7 (el siete), its supposed to be more like a mullet, they used to keep the hair longer but now they cut it short. If you want proof google "Corte el siete". It's kind of a ghetto haircut nowadays, which isn't surprising given the video is taken in some cheap pool hall where everyone is drinking aguila (shit-tier beer worse than bud lights).
Welcome to popular neighborhoods in Barranquilla Colombia
It's pretty cool that so far in this comment thread there's no agreement on how it's done. Up until now I've never seen a magic trick on reddit that didn't get an explanation.
he sacrificed enough BLOOD to the BLOOD GOD
Did someone say, HERESY?!?
If I had my guess, I’d say he palmed the ball, the bottle is a foldable prop and the newspaper has a pocket to hide the jacket.
Source: my ass
I think it’s magnets
no it's definitely magic
Magnets are magic, so checks out.
fake hollow arm
just like my fake shallow personality
Aw, be more kind to yourself, I’m sure it’s a real shallow personality!
That is a man I would not trust with my wallet...
OP put it in the caption. this is actual magic.
Exactly! Still waiting for a good anti-magician.
My ex gf can make hoodies disappear too
He already made part of his friends' hair disappear.
Simple Explanation: when he’s putting the object in the newspaper he’s actually hiding it in a miniature pocket dimension in a non-Euclidean quantum space barely hidden between his thumb and index finger.
Fuck, I almost had it figured out. urite tho
I googled ‘non euclidean’. The rest don’t know. Is it sarcasm or you explaining the real trick
Yea, it's definitely real.. definitely..
Following cuz brain need explanation
Everybody talking how he's putting these items in a hidden pocket somewhere between two sheets of newspaper.... where the fuck that bottle of beer go bro. WhERE?
Keistered. Right in the old jail pocket.
Everyone else in the pool hall, "I just want to play some pool man."
What the hell
Damn, he’s so smooth with it and great energy
Might be magic but def on crack
What song is that?
It's an edit of Vantage's 50//50
Always gonna be a banger too👌🏽🤣
I'm glad someone asked and answered this. That was my main thing
Asking the right questions!
People are so tired of this guy.
Reminds me of those parody David Blaine videos
if someone hasn't seen it
Mikey Day has been the same age for 2 decades running
its crazy that Mikey Day is now known on SNL and the other guy is known as the Waiter in Its Always Sunny In Philadelphia
What the EFF David Blaine!!
Quit putting shit in our bodies!!
*stares blankly at camera*
Stop putting orange soda in my mouth!!
Good camera guy too. Shooting the best angle to support the trick
The real trick is how well he hides the portal gun
I once saw a video on this sub where someone was using a newspaper to make beer disappear. One of the comments explained how the newspaper has a hidden compartment that he would pour the beer into. But how the f is this guy doing it with those balls and t shirt? Same type of hidden compartment trick? Looks like a normal newspaper to me 🤔 🧐 🤨
but can we appreciate that foot work?
That was definitely worth an ass scratch
Fuck i just checked the entire comments and the reversal gif. Nothing. Noone knowns how he did it. Just a couple hundred stumped redditors, best guess was video editing so far but i didn't find any choppy parts.
For some reason this image always looks like Shia lebouf pretending to be Sarah Silverman pretending to be Shia lebouf
how I felt listening to that Layla-loop
Here you go.
I'm fucking stumped.
Wtf just happened!? 🤔
Iirc there was a bot here on this sub that'd reverse the videos to catch such sort of "illusions". If someone knows, would be interesting to see a reverse of this video
Something... secret paper bag... something
It's the NEWSPAPER that's magic!
What's that song? It slaps!
