There will be times that you want to just disappear from the scene and become invisible. This lucky man got to experience what it would be like to be invisible for a few moments thanks to a prank by a magician and a few accomplices.
Magician Justin Willman reveals he sent out an ad on Craiglist to enlist people for his new Netflix show ‘Magic For Humans’. He selects a few characters from crowd to convince a person into believing invisibility is real.
Jonathan, who was called in to volunteer for one of the tricks became a victim. Though, he had doubts, he was convinced when Willman makes another volunteer disappear. He used a soda can to prove he made another man visible.
The crowd starts to cheer when Jonathan becomes ‘invisible’, but things get interesting when Willman steps away from the scene. A spectator asks to have her picture taken with the invisible Jonathan.
The resulting image with an invisible man, which was actually taken earlier with an empty chair.
Jonathan couldn’t believe the proof and almost falls off his chair. He even walks around and tries to interact with the crowd, who completely ignore him.
Later, it was the turn of Brandon to become a victim of the prank.
Willman explained how he got this idea:
“When I was a kid I put a tooth under my pillow, went to sleep, and in the morning there was money there. That tangible evidence was more than enough proof to make me believe in the tooth fairy. To find out how far I could take that premise, I set up a large flash-mob style social experiment all to convince one guy he had turned invisible.”
