    Theres a seat, sort of like a unicycle seat going under his crotch, up his back, and out his sleeve, probably covered with a skin tone tape to make it less obvious. It hooked on the edge of the bus. The "floating" at the beginning is just camera tricks/rigging.

    In all seriousness, it`s got to be the arm. The shots where he`s lifted and lowered are shot in front of an empty bus, so you know those are composited.

    I agree it is a fake arm attached to the bus, and he is attached to it somehow. His real arm is under the jacket.

    It`s obvious he built a time machine, went into the future and stole an anti-gravity device that requires the horsepower of a bus to energize.

    There`s an awful lot of close-up cutting so that we don`t see him rise AND "attach" to the bus, nor get down, so he`s obviously being lifted by something off camera, and not in front of a crowd.
    The right arm is fake and thru it runs a metal rod, which is attached to the bus and to a rig under his clothes that includes a bike saddle - he`s doubtless strapped on as well so he won`t fall. The baggy vest helps hide his real arm hidden underneath his clothes.

    @ Zismo: I`ll have you know my best Stanford-Binet score was a 72, which is very impressive for a squirrel. AND I`m a member of Squirsa International, the society for intellectually gifted rodents. So watch what you`re talking about there!

    Stumped? How the f can you be stumped by this? It is probably the most obvious trick I`ve ever seen performed by a "magician". Really, really lame.

    These types of camera cuts (that allow for this `magic` to happen) is exactly what I hated about Chris Angel. That guy was such a twat.

    It`s a fake arm attached to a bus. The fake arm then has an attached contraption that he`s sitting on (or in), thus able to dangle his legs.

    His real arm in tucked neatly away in his conveniently baggy hoodie.

    Wouldn`t want to spoil it for you how they get the rabbit out of the hat then, I guess.

    The excess gas from the soda is released via tubes down his trouser legs. Careful and practised control of the relevant rectal/anal muscles ensures a smooth and gentle ride. Olfactory discomfort is avoided by careful selection of a bus travelling into the prevailing wind.

    It`s obvious... Superman was not, in fact, caucasian, but WAS, in fact, a roostery douche.
