    Is it just me, or did the hands seem a little out of sync at some points?

    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.

    ^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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
