    You see, I can`t be arsed with magic tricks or illusions any more. It just seems to me they are all camera tricks and that`s it. Take David Copperfield or Derren Brown or whatever. I just reckon, meh camera trick, meh person in the audience is in on the trick.

    The Prestige makes all magic tricks seem lame now.

    But having said that... cool camera tricks, bro.

    That was incredibly strange. Strange in a good way, though, but at the end I was almost expecting it to be a commercial.

    I really don`t get what I`m supposed to be impressed by. So he does the trick and then they switch to a shot with the middle cup as a big sticker for the last bit. What? Am I missing something thats actually awesome? Can`t see why this isnt pointless. 1/4

    My reaction:
    "Hm, okay, this looks like a pretty ordinary trick... what`s he doing with the ball? Okay, we get it, stop showing off and do the real trick already... okay, I see what you did there. You positioned your hand to hide the ball to make it look like you slipped it underneath but you still have it with you... well, I`ll still entertain myself by following the cup you pretended to put it under... nah, forget it... okay, you`re done mixing... not under cup 1... not under cup 3... oh, let me guess, not under cup 2 either, huh? What aHOLY SH*T WHAT!? WHAT!? WHAT!?... HOW THE!?... WHAT!? HOLY F*CK! WHAT!?"

    It wasn`t an actual cup, or background, I don`t get why people are confused/impressed by this. >_<; It`s all computer based. The cups were animated. The man was moving the cups in the same way that you can shake hands with an animated character in a movie.
    It`s been done since "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" came out.

    Actually, he was moving real cups, just when he moved his hands away, they cut and replaced the center cup with a sticker.

    A lot simpler and MUCH easier than the_windy`s explanation. Btw, who framed roger rabbit was far from the first movie to be filmed in such a way

    I have to agree with some other people. That was good just because it was unexpected. I`m not going to even bother trying to figure out what happened.

    "o_O I`m very scared right now."

    Creeped me out too... I think it was mostly the music and the robotic voice telling us that reality has a fault. o.o
