David Blaine is known for a lot of street magic where he shows card tricks to bystanders. This time, he performs a card trick to the editors at Esquire Magazine. At the end of the trick, he explains how it’s done. It’s pretty brilliant.
This shows that even world class magicians like David Blaine performs easy-to-perform tricks like this one. The only difference is that he is able to communicate and build up the trick in his own unique way to make the effect even more spectacular.
Like most street magic tricks, the art is in the way you communicate the trick to fool their minds rather than the actual trick itself.
