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

LOL @ Nickel2`s explanation. Aha! *Now* it all makes sense.

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.

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

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.

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.

@ 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!

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.

It`s like David Blaine and Chris Angel had a baby and raised it in England.

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.

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.

Hmmm. Interesting theories everyone. I`m still convinced Satan was involved.

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.

Clearly the soda gave him the power.

he is supported by a metal frame... the arm holding on the bus is fake, his real one is under his clothing

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.
