Yeah, guys. This is surely something to argue about. Magic REALLY exists! Just like Santa and Jesus! C`mon, grow up! We all know it`s a trick! The point is that he does it really well and it`s freaking awesome!

yeah...at like the 3:14 or 3:15 mark...if you rapidly tap the play/pause button...i was able to pause it when he had upturned his hand with a coin on it...while the three coins were still on the table...and you can see at 3:17 that one coin is twice as thick as the other....but it sure LOOKED cool...=D

Okay the last trick with the hand through the table is done like this, when bringing his left to his right he is simply moving a hole in the plastic table into position, notice how the table is circular so it would be easy two have a two layered table, one layer would be for the cups and jugs and stuff to sit on and the other would be just open to the quarter that the magicians working on,difficult to see how he moves the hole back, but it can be done.

I can easily explain the reason for the American half-dollar too.

It looks better than Chinese currency?



Okay maybe not...

More spoilers?

Lookout below!

For the trick where he drops one of the 3 coins in the guy`s hand "through" the mousepad and into the bowl, the reason for the mousepad is so you don`t notice him putting the coin into the bowl with his other hand.

He never actually grabbed a coin out of the other guy`s hand, he simply closed the trick coin, as is pretty obvious.

Where is the spoiler option?? Oh well, SPOILER BELOW:

Last one:

That section of the table is rotatable. Notice when they pan in that the wood separating his panel from the one beside is slightly elevated above his section of glass, but the section on the other side is flush with the wood. The glass panel continues under the other one. At 4:42 when the camera pans in on the coins in the man`s hand, the hole in the glass is slid from under the other pane and his hand remains over it the whole time until 5:22 when he slides it toward the other hand to continue the trick. At 6:16 when his hand is pulled out completely, notice his inability to remain completely still as another member of the group slides the pane back into place while his hands rub against the moving glass.

Well played camera angle and involved group :D

LazyMe nailed the last one. At 5:22 when he`s sliding his hand, you can tell he`s obviously spinning the glass. This leads me to believe the other people at the tables are actors, cooperating to help the effect.

Special coins used for magic tricks. Ask Yourself, Why is a Chinese guy using American coins for a magic trick ? He`s also carefully `Palming` the coins under the table. The coins are made to fold inside themselves along the edge, Sort of like a pocket knife.

If that ruined the tricks for you, Sorry.

the ring may be magnatic, but that doesn`t have anything to do with the coin tricks. I know many coin tricks and none involve magnets. I guess they could be out there, but I`ve never seen them.

the trick done at the 3 minute mark... as someone else said, he is palming one coin (can clearly be seen before his hand hits the table). As far as the coin that is no longer ON the table. The 2 coins on the right are actually connected. Watch as he positions them. He moves the top and the middle moves with it, perfectly. The top coin is a shell that the bottom "popped" into.

3:15 - The coin is clearly in his hand before he hits the underside of table. The other coins look like they attach to each other maybe?

Can`t explain that last one though :S

You can notice that as he pulls his hand out of the glass, his left arm is fighting against the glass rotating.

Spoiler: Look at the glass next to the chick in green`s hand and notice all the finger smudges. When he starts to put his hand through the glass watch as one finger slips under the table as if she is activating a switch and rotating the glass. When his hand is through the hole, there are no smudges in that spot any more. Then as his hand comes out, she puts her finger under the table again and the smudges come back...The front section of glass must rotate around and under the left or right sections of glass. He uses the random box of crackers and the tea cups to create the illusion the glass isn`t moving.

Also, Chris Angel is garbage.

Everything he does is camera trickery and fake.

The first few tricks were pretty good, but mostly sleight of hand. Even the "hand through the table" was a magician staple (although I don`t know how he did it, especially when he stopped covering up his arm with his other hand)

The trick where he asked the girl to pick the coin and popped it through the table was just unbelievable though. I`m pretty certain it was a combination of him picking up a coin when he thumpped the table and tossing one up against the table that was hidden in his other hand. but I watched it so many times and I can`t for the life of me catch any movement besides the thump.

Love magic and this guy is really good at it.

Mmm, his ring is magnetic for the first few coin ones.

David Blaine does a trick similar to the last one but on shop windows to get peoples jewellery that he magiced in there

This was from the chinese newyears special this year, and the reason he cleaned that dude`s hand was he made a joke in the beginning
