  1. Rebel: "What……?!"

    That's such a mood, man.

    Somebody should compare it with the same minions expression from the first movie

  2. First trick was so obviously fake he never shows the corner of the card and sound effects are just added in when he rips the card. His hand is always covering the corner. Great trick on James and the guests but just put the corner in his jacket earlier. Also the way he deals 10 cards is obvious as fuck he did slight of hand

  3. If I was there definitely I wouldn't be tearing my card to try the magic just to save energy because it's not a magic. Just a maths trick.

  4. Don’t rip your cards, just pick out 4 pairs from a deck and separate into 2 piles of 4 in the same order. Then follow along. This stupid math trick will find the bottom pair. Look up “Josephus problem” if you don’t understand.

  5. first trick, simple card rip with a force , you can see him pull the card out differently which means he is pulling the one he wants out. ripping it a specific way to then match the corner which he had already placed on james, generally the hardest part of this is the place. his slight of hand is just okay, if he placed this on james while wearing the coat thats impressive but more then likely he got access to his coat before the show.
    second trick. is a force again just when h picked up the card he switched it the the card he needed again decent slight of hand. but the phone tricks are kinda blah. the plastic thing in his wallet when exposed to the light the camera will pick up the card we cant see. its a pre set trick.

    now his final trick. actually the most easy to pull of. but what a trick. now its completely just math , but often the easiest tricks are sometimes the most amazing. he presents this trick the best by getting everyone involved thus doing it on a grand scale. indeed an amazing trick.

  6. Priyanka Chopra is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo HOT.

  7. I know how he did all the tricks. The 2nd one was the least impressive, as it was very obviously he knew what card it was since she didn't shuffle the first cards. Then he used his own wallet.

  8. can do some trick without ripped them? i just want to be cool and make it work with my friends. It is hard for me to buy the new one and ripped them every time I want to do the trick. thanks.

  9. This is why I love magic. I got to do a project recently where I had to learn a ton of the key fundamentals of how magic tricks work, and my ability to understand the mechanics behind a trick (NO, an “illusion”… thanks Gob…!) has exploded. I was worried it would spoil everything about magic going forward. But instead, it’s opened up my appreciation of the art form FAR more than ever before. Like, rather than just be amazed, I can now make guesses as to how things were done, and even if I work it out or get close, the cleverness of the trick itself is just as amazing (if not more so) than the amazement of coming into the effect blindly. I have a theory for these, and if I’m right it’s insanely impressive. And if I’m wrong… well then literally the only explanation is that he’s truly magic! Either way, bloody well done!

  10. The other half of the one you hid was always at the bottom. The she loves me she loves me not was just to push that half up until you only have one.

  11. Who else paused the video… found some cards… unpaused… and he said rip the 4 cards in half… and you said fuck it i'm not doing that? That's real magic right there!

  12. Am I right that when he shot the video the card wasnt there so he had to tape 2 videos with them and he is kinda scamming audience? No hate, just do not see other solution.

  13. It's simple math. It's like the trick with the 21 cards, 3 piles/11th card trick and many others. It's simple logic, but always entertaining for sure.

  14. there is no such thing as magic.stereo type comment I know,but the girl with dark hair already started placing cards b4 he even said she should.Routine rehersal is not magic.smh.better luck next time

  15. Worst force ever. 2nd card trick, he doesnt ask her to shuffle until after the first 5 cards. The bottom card will always be his card. He gives her yhe deck with that card on the bottom already. It NEVER MOVES UNTIL SHE CUTS. GOD I WISH SHE MIXED THEM DURING HIS STUPID VIDEO ROUTINE.

  16. I literally had a deck, already open, in my hand, but like, they're nice. "The Ultimate Deck" by Dan & Dave, look it up. No way am I damaging any of these cards.

  17. Oh, I thought that this was a magician claiming to be the worlds best. I'm like ahh, it's a show that has a bunch of them. Very clickbaity if you ask me

  18. The card was already teared apart from the deck.. don't you see it? How weird he is holding the deck..and pops out the already ripped card… Lol
    Works with every phone.. its printed just to see with a lense..this is so amateur level.. and the counting cards.. man ..the 4th (your sitting on) and the bottom card (8th card) are the same.. that is the nature of ripping things apart and stack em … So amateur level..so disappointing.. watch Lior Suchard.. that's amazing

  19. The trick at the end is rubbish. You have two piles of the same card. Put one on top on the other, its twice the same stack: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4. Remove the first three, put 4 in your pocket, then he tells you to do a bunch of random shit which never changes the card at the bottom (the second half of card number 4). Trading the top card with your neighbor doesn't change the bottom card, when you take 1/2/3 cards and put them in the middle, he even tells you not to put it back at the bottom. The loves me/loves me not, we associate that with randomness but in this case it"s just stepping through the deck non-random to get the bottom card. Odd numbered cards are put at the bottom, which the original bottom card (out of 7 = odd) is one of, and that's where everyone ends.

  20. who noticed his trick…look at the deck in the hand as he taking out cards…u will know what he is doing …rigged from the start

  21. In video trick he opens flashlight and check first is it visible on the video then start recording. there is plenty of studio lights why he's opening flaslight? Because the card is already in the wallet and can only seen with a powerful near light source.

  22. I hope you know that he hacked James phone and a friend or employee on the outside photoshopped the card into the photo. We are legit living in watchdogs. The future is gonna be nuts

  23. Hehe bro it was already ripped before the trick….he was hidding ripped place of the card with his fingers …then he rip little bit of that broken card to hear like he is ripping it …. there's a video about how to do this trick its eazy

  24. going back to the audience help. can I buy like 5 deck of cards and shuffle them all up and pass out 4 cards to the audience or is it just certain cards or suits to use?

  25. 1 – TAKE YOUR RIGHT ARM OUT OF YOUR RIGHT SIDED SWEATER SLEEVE
    2 – TAKE YOU LEFT HAND AND GRAB THE RIGHT SIDED EMPTY ARM SLEEVE AT THE TIP OF THE WRIST
    3 – MOVE YOUR LEFT ARM UP AND DOWN CONSTANTLY
    4 – WHILE MOVING YOUR RIGHT ARM DOWN AND UP CONSTANTLY, ALTERNATING IN UNISON
    NOW THAT'S MAGIC!!!!!

  26. Penn and Teller did the torn cards trick when I went to see them at the SSE Hydro. Worked for me but it's it's still a cool effect even though it's just mathematical.

  27. lol the Worlds best magician? Says the guy with the cards, and how many times has he said this? at 0:23 in why does the big blonde stare desperately into the camera of space and time as if she feels no one is looking or paying attention to her??? How sad. She is beautiful, but she doesn't know it yet. Shame on this facade of an industry.

  28. First one easy… That card was coming out of his hand being no. 1 or 2 or 3 or 9. It would always be the same jack. The piece was always in James pocket. That part of the card was never shown throughout the act. The only thing is to trick our minds in to thinking he is actually ripping the card… A lot of practice and good acting!
