I’m not a fan of traditional magic such as card tricks or the over-the-top illusions of people such as David Copperfield. But I do like the non-traditional types such as Penn & Teller and David Blaine.
However, what I like above all else is learning how these tricks and illusions are done. Real magic does not exist in this world, instead there’s an explanation for every single thing done by these illusionists.
One such example is Criss Angel’s walking on water illusion from his Mindfreak television show. It looks mighty impressive on first viewing but take a closer look and have how it’s done explained to you and it loses its whole appeal.
In this video, the Masked Magician reveals that Plexiglas platforms are used just under the surface of the water. Thanks to being nearly invisible when submerged in water, the Plexiglas allows Angel or anyone else to walk on water. Or indeed not.
