This is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Stage illusionists have been performing this trick for a very long time and most people have not been able to figure out how it’s done.
Today, we’re going to learn the secrets and how you can do it too. However, there’s a catch at the end. This is one of the coolest tricks I’ve ever seen. I love tricks where they teach you how the classic version of the trick is done, then leave you scratching your head by adding a twist at the end.
When you see how it’s actually done, it’s going to be disappointing. It’s kind of a bummer to learn that the secret behind a great illusion is actually very plain and boring. But, make sure you watch until the end. You’ll learn how one trick is done, but it doesn’t end there. Get ready to have your mind blown.
Care to venture a guess on how the second part is done? There are many hypothesis by people who watch the trick. For people who guess that he merely hides in the dark, behind the stage, and switches places with the woman at the last second, watch the video again. You can clearly see that she enters the compartment before the man is revealed.
Note that all sides of the compartment are opened at the end so she clearly can’t be hiding on one of the sides.
This one is a real mind tickler.
