    Link: Where`d The Hell That Referee Come From? - Seriously, at about the :06 second mark, a ref appears out of thin air. I`ve watched this 20 time and I`m still confused

    See that guy who comes into the frame at the .02 mark? That`d be the referee! The shot then switches to the camera positioned behind, which means the referee that comes on at .02 is now on the right hand side.

    It`s simple. The first ref is Multiple Man from X-Men. He just whipped out a second ref to break up the action.

    That`s not the magic ref. The one in the corner has orange arm bands. The magic ref is the second one that shows up, has no armbands and the number 86 on his back.

    I`m still looking at this... None of the aerial shots show a referee in that area, then it zooms in and while everyone is skating by right before the magic referee shows up, there is a couple of players behind them but no refs. Then, all of the sudden, BAM, REFEREE. Comes out of drating thing air.

    Now you`re thinking with portals.

    I`ve been looking at it frame by frame and you can`t see him at any other time. This is a great IRL illusion.

    If you freeze at 5 secs you see him in the right (behind 93). He is the ref without the orange bands on his arm. Then there is enough time so that when the other ref goes to the right he quickly goes to the left blending in with the ref in the foreground. Our eye is forced to the right due to relative motion of the players and camera. Then, at the critical moment Will Smith shops the frame so that we all forget how crappy the Wild Wild West was

    Wow, ok, not a lot of hockey fans here. He`s not a ref, he`s a linesman, so his place is at the blue line. He just skated up pretty fast from the blue line when he saw the scuffle. Not all that special.

    That is a bloody quick linesman, you can see him in the background, skating slowly toward the players before he suddenly "appears." Not the amazing Houdini, but a quick-footed ref nonetheless.

    Definitely not a glitch. Nothing else in the shot is jumping. It`s just some incredibly unintentional slide of hand. The position and movement of the players/ref in the shot and camera angle were perfect.

    Related (and much easier to figure out but still funny)

    0:03 he can be seen behind a player, left side with a distance of about 10m to the goal
    0:05 Refs helmet flashes behind the left player (behind the players right shoulder) in the scene.

    @Oldfrt I know it was the second ref that was the `magic ref` as stated in my second comment but then couldn`t delete the first comment as the second tied into the first. Seems like Davidildo123 did the exact same thing less than an hour later as well. So rather than deleting one and making another clean concise and coherent comment I think i`ll just write those two and then this statement explaining the others.
    Because, you know... that`s easier

    I see him in the back but just the speed and accuracy he comes at him to the angle of the camera makes him seem almost ghost like in appearence behind the ppl. It seems he is comming straight into the guys back but I think her turned at the exact moment behind when he started moving back.
