    this one isnt that good. his hand bending gives off his trick. even though he did a good job being fast i can tell which hand had the coins.

    I watched something the other night, the `junior world magic championship`, or something like that- what little they showed of the tricks done by children was better than this.

    @thebuzzer, yeah i saw it too, it was impressive, but i mean common, its the internet. there are tons of videos of people doing it better. And at least they dont record their videos with a drating toaster.

    First one it was obvious when he put the two coins together. Same with the second one. The key to performing the illusion is to perform the actual trick before you even start it.

    Notice for the trick with the 3 coins together. He`d already placed the coin under the card when he was still screwing around with the 2 coins.

    @tedgp

    I hate people who "explain" tricks, but rather point out the most obvious trickery but fail to explain the crucial sleight of hand. Despite the static camera perspective, I doubt anyone can easily point out the actual moments of false passing and dumping.

    There is absolutely nothing cool or fun about explaining magic tricks, unless you want to do them yourself.

    @Digital You have heard of the pause button and playing the video in slow motion right? Put that together with a basic knowledge of sleight if hand and you would know that almost all tricks such as this are actually done before they are "started"

    I really like the fact that these hands are NOT quicker than the eye; they move smoothly and you can see every move - except the moves that somehow move the coins around, and that`s why he`s so good.

    It`s painfully obvious how he did this. He cast a disillusionment charm on each coin before he moved it, then used the accio spell to move it to the desire area. Duh.

    You can see the outline of the adhesive on the card clearly throughout the demonstration
