  1. Actors are so awesome, they do the best reactions! How on earth did you name him the world's best magician. The last trick was taught by Penn and Teller on live TV XD Whoever saw it can do it XD I did not see any original trick, just once he appeared in wizard wars… that is literally it. World's best? He cannot hold a candle to Copperfield, Blaine, or even newcomers on a global scale like Shin Lim, Eric Chien… or Wes Barker, Spidey, Chris Ramsay, Adam Wilber, etc. I could name a bunch of magicians who are better, because of the fact they do not do illusions that were actually taught of live TV XD Especially from famous people like Penn and Teller! The wallet trick? Well it is 30 or 50 dollars on the internet to buy the gimmick.

  2. This guy is using amateur tricks … first trick literally so easy and the 3 was dealt down first that’s why afterwards she can shuffle because it’s down first

  3. Sorry, but this was one of the worst magic card tricks from a "pro" on TV. This is grade school stuff…. You don't even need to try to concentrate to figure out the trick, the guy literally is putting the cards in an order at which the first half and second half eventually gets picked from the ripped deck.

  4. Disappointed a little bit, to be honest. I didn't do it at home watching this video but I realised his trick when he started the love me and love me not game. It's not a bad or same old trick. I just expect more when I click to that The World's best title.

  5. Rebel: "What……?!"

    That's such a mood, man.

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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Priyanka Chopra is soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo HOT.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.
