    Looks obviously to me like 2 strings, one attached maybe above the camera and on attached to the back, like his head or shoulder. When he leans forward the cigarette drops, when he leans back it rises. The tunnel he makes with his hands also surrounds the strings as well as the cigarette. My take on it anyway. That thing is obviously dangling.

    I know how to do that and yes, it does involve string(s) and I don`t mean the ones that you can wear. The part where he puts it in a glass and covers the top is possible, the string is going between the glass and the cigarette packet.

    pfft... easy trick, there is just a string threaded thru the ciggy. one end in his mouth, and someone holding the other behind the camera. The glass traps the string under the box he puts on top. His hands never actually go over the top of it, and when he does that loop thing, he just doesnt tangle it up. on the last loop he takes his hands apart before they pull on the sting. Easy

    Duh, the answer to this is so obvious, I`m surprised I`m the first one to notice.

    If you freeze-frame at EXACTLY 1:22, you`ll notice him looking off the camera, what you don`t know is that he`s looking at a 12 year old girl. Thus, he`s obviously using what we call `Pedophile Power`.

    But, seriously. This guy. Looks creepy. I mean, would any of you let him babysit your imaginary children?

    I sure as hell wouldn`t, and my imaginary child is a predator...with the lasers and everything.

    First off... iron your shirt dude!

    Second... the common practice for this type of illusion is a thread attached to the magician behind his ear. That`s right folks... behind his ear. The other end is... wait for it... attached to the cigarette! I know... unbelievable! Anywho, the thread is manipulated using the magicians thumb on his right hand. As someone already pointed out, the magician leaning forward and backward also moves the cigarette.

    Great, I just broke the Magicians Code. I would imagine it`ll be a matter of time before they come looking for me. I guess I may be safe for a little while.... wait, brb... someone`s at the door... AAARRRGGGHHHHHH!!!

    That saw-neck trick forum is filled with (What I hope is) pre-pubescent Magician`s apprentices complaining about the Magician`s code and all of that rubbish.

    How come no one is complaining here?

    No mention of Criss Angel in the title...or...?

    Am I the only one that thinks it could be magnets, I mean if the cigarette is positively charged and the guy had a magnetic plate that was also positively charged, and it could work with the right timing. I`m only saying this because; if he had smoked the cigarette at the end to prove it was real he would have... I don`t know really, just a theory.

    And, LesBerry...I really don`t think that it would work...at least not efficiently.

    I mean, I dunno, but it doesn`t seem right. Magnets are really touchy, you`d have to position them perfectly...Especially to get them to hover like that...

    Have you ever tried to get a third magnet to hover between two others? Nearly impossible unless the one in the middle is tied or secured in some way.
    Good that you thought differently than the rest, though. Kudos.

    i kid i know did this with a card one time. He used 2 hairs (i dont even wanna know where he got 2 really long hairs) and i knew it was a hair and he had it tied to his ear and hand. sso i went and grabbed one and the card fell down and every one laughed and he was like "Don`t tell anyone how i did that!" to my whole science class.
    Ooops i guess i just did. Oh well i hate that kid anyways.

    spartan... let`s just say for a moment that he`s doing this for a live audience. how practical do you think it would be to have the string go to his mouth? HE may be doing it that way, since he`s apparently a dolt, but it should be done with the string attached to the back of the ear.
