This Twist On A Classic Magic Trick Is Hilarious And Brilliant
Jul 25, 2015
The magic act (sorry, illusionists) of Young & Strange decided to use this as a theme for a new video promoting their work. Enlisting the help of Sky News' Ashish Joshi, they perform an incredible variation on a classic illusion, "live" on camera.
It might seem like people doing strange things behind reporters are everywhere these days. Dubbed "video bombing," a play on "photo bombing," it can range from harmless waving to elaborate practical jokes, or in some unfortunate instances, offensive behavior or an expensive disruption to a journalist's work. It's actually far less common than you think, however the Internet has given us a place where five-second celebrities can congregate and even boast about their exploits, so it actually seems more prevalent than it really is.
