Is it a magical mirror, or just a trick?

Look at the hands... the guy is standing in the middle of the wall and there is no mirror but a hole in the wall. He`s using his left hand for the mirror effect and the right hand for the real world effect. That`s how he make everything look so symetrical.

The banana disapear because someone else pulled a string that was attached to it or something like that.

UUUH, look at his "real" thumb (not the mirror) when he`s covering up the banana. He`s thumb kinda LAGS!!!!! The video is edited even though they say it isn`t!

the head reflection was completely intentional, no one is gonna bend their head so far forward to place an object, it looked really fake/unnatural, the way he did it.
although I`m amazed he found 2 so identical bananas, unless they were fake bananas made of plastic or something.

Hmmmm. I think it can`t be a hole in the wall.
His head is reflected early on. Missed that?
Well it still could be a tv screen, but I think there`s a flap on the book that`s colored so it looks as if the banana dissappeared. it`s still there, and the mirror can "see" it if you will. (and it`s colored on the other side so the mirror image works out too) That`d be cool.

That part WAS a mirror. It was AFTER that moment when they said "from HERE on, this is going to be only one take."
Pay attention, ffs!

My guess is that it`s not just a hole, but there is glass as well. That way, he can tap and it makes a sound. Both hands are his, he is in the position where he can outstretch his hands and do whatever he wants with the objects, as long as he is moving his hands at the same time.
Notice how when he covers the banana with his right hand, his arm covers where the banana could have gone to go off the table.

it`s quite obviously just the mans 2 hands, with the wall going inbetween his legs. he`s totally out of sync in parts.

I think it`s photoshopped. I mean, its just a little bit of shadow added on the banana in the mirror, and keeping the banana their could be a cinch. I think it`s not though judging by the first couple of coments. wish i knew how though. It would really impress me if they put a light right next to it so you could see the shadow.

There is no conclusive proof of this "Mirror" theory so it must of been god that made that Banana disappear.

What he should do if he REALLY wants to prove it`s magic is break the fu*king mirror after he`s finished the trick.

"If he got someone else to be his reflection for that section, it`s very precise."

Thats because at that point of the clip, it IS a mirror. I believe it was very intentional.

I cannot see any out of synch -_-. I really don`t care about that. But how do you make a banana disappear like that. Slight of hand? Right. Oh I get it. I`ll just make MY banana disappear with "Slight of Hands" Gotcha...What the hell is slight of hands.

For those of you who haven`t got it yet: At the start it`s a real mirror. After they cut away, it`s a different scene. He tried (notice "tried") to sync up the hands in the video and probably added the tapping mirror sound afterwards. Also, and I`m not saying that it`s how he does it, but just because someone says they didn`t edit a video, doesn`t mean they actually didn`t.

If that isn`t a mirror, how did he get the reflection of his left hand and part of his face in the beginning of the trick? If he got someone else to be his reflection for that section, it`s very precise.

How would americans pronounce it?

Banaynah or something?

We`re just as weird as eachother...

Anyway, nice trick. You can tell it`s just a hole in the wall, but still has a nice idea behind it.

nice trick with the banana. but its easy to see the trick behind this when he picks up the pen. he should`ve practiced more.

All he does is tap the banana so its behind the book and we cant see it. The "mirror" is just a window

Video editing... they didn`t have to make it so obvious as to post a "there was no editing in what you are about to see".

I don`t know what`s more entertaining:

British and their amazing tricks of wonder,
Canadians and their sports and gaming,
Japanese and their humorous contestant shows, or
Americans and our teenage beauty contestants!

Sander it was clearly videoshopped then wasn`t it :P. i gotta say i find it funny with these vids how many different and usually rather plaussible explinations are put forward, i find it funnier that people still post stuff after about it being photoshopped or its a video screen blah blah blah at least 3 ideas too late. dammit people its not a soddin mirror and they are both his hands its not that hard to see.

I wonder why some people always say "Photoshop" when strange videos are discussed. Photoshop is for pictures; not videos.

what, `how can he tap the mirror with a pen if there is nothing there?`, he can`t mate its a trick, he taps pen A against pen B and person C taps pen F against an actual mirror we shall call mirror z alpha x for simplicity. slight of hand with the bannanna not too hard just cupped it.

"simple. its not a mirror. but a tv screen with a video playing"

^What are you talking about!?

It`s not a wall but a piece of cardboard. BOTH hands are his. There is NO photoshop involved.

Not sure how he made the banana disapear though.

Hole in the wall, two hands. With a little practice it`s not all too hard, the slight of hand with the banana is very impressive seeing as how he only had one hand to do it... No comment

Yeah its a whole, hence it being a bit out of sync, and the mug not lining up, the Exit sign seems a bit deliberate too, plus the fact that YOU CAN`T SEE THE CAMERAMAN IN THE MIRROR!!

Not sure how he made the banana vanish though.
