No, jackass, his fingers are not sliding over the wire. Watch the little white spots on the wires.

Do you all really not get it? It looks like he`s holding the coils tightly and pulling them apart. His hands get further away from each other, and it looks like the coils are separating, but they don`t separate at all. It looks neat.

It looks like they`re coming apart but the overlapped region stays the same length... it looks neat if you try to count the overlapped crests/troughs

Did they cut out something like boobs or a cool explosion because this was nothing remarkable.

He is simply holding the two corkscrews with two pinched fingers at each end and then he just pulls his hands in each direction the wire slides through his fingers causing them to spin but never separate.

Am I missing something? All they are doing is rotating them around and around, right?
