Anything is possible in the world of magic.
You can make yourself disappear.
Cut down on cooking time.
Ping-pong balls for breakfast.
And best of all, baffle a traffic warden.
Welcome to Now You See It.
Max Somerset hasn't just parked illegally,
he also seems to have stolen Doctor Who's jacket.
-What is it this time?
-You haven't paid and displayed, sir.
I haven't paid and displayed?
-But I put money in there, I've got it until 13.05.
I'm sorry, sir, no, no, if you pay and display, then you would have
a ticket. You don't have no ticket. I'm sorry, sir.
-How much is one of these?
-That's £50, sir.
£50? Oh, you're absolutely right.
It is £50.
Thanks very much indeed, I appreciate that.
Thank you, let your Chief Warden know that I am very grateful.
I appreciate that. I suppose I won't be needing this. Thank you so much.
On the downside, he did get a £100 fine for littering.
Would you perform a handstand on top of a wobbly pile of old bits
of plastic? Of course not.
You'd fall off. So would I.
This boy doesn't.
He performs the handstand with no problem whatsoever.
And then he falls off.
On the plus side, he does win the award
for most premature use of the phrase...
Money Fun now, and here's Spider-Man paying his lunch bill.
And who wouldn't want to be able to do this trick?
Finally, here's some people chasing a fiver,
so they can hand it in to the police, I expect(!)
The key here is to chase the money while retaining your dignity.
"Honestly, it just fell out of my purse and blew into your hand."
He really wants that money.
But not as much as this guy.
Time now to enjoy the work of master illusionist Andrew Mayne.
I want to take a picture of you and your car.
This girl loves her car and spends thousands of dollars on it.
It's her pride and joy.
And if anything was to happen to it,
to use her own words, she'd "have a meltdown".
You know what I think we need to do here,
ever heard of wax voodoo therapy?
-Does this look familiar?
-Does it look like your car?
What I want to try to do is I want to take all the negative energy...
-..and put it right into this little car.
-Take your left hand, hold on to the pen.
Hold it out here. All right.
Don't let go. We're going to melt all that negative energy away.
This is going to be the last meltdown about this car.
Good, I'm glad.
Make sure you don't get that on my shoes.
Not sure getting wax on your shoes
is the worst thing that could happen here.
So there you go, the last meltdown.
Well, not the LAST meltdown.
-Oh, my God!
It looks like THAT is the last meltdown.
I can't look at it like this.
You CAN look at it like this, you just can't DRIVE it like this.
Still, it's only a car.
As we all know, three is the magic number
and here's three magical tips for healthy eating.
No need to eat more fruit. Just eat the same fruit over and over again.
Ping-pong balls for breakfast.
Get plenty of protein.
And if you don't enjoy eating healthy food,
just do this to it first.
Interestingly, over the years, my Granny Smith got smaller.
She is 83 and 4ft 6 now.
Here's six-year-old Gagan Satish
who likes nothing more than roller-skating
under very low things.
Don't try what Gagan is doing.
He's a trained Guinness World Record holder
and this was a fully supervised stunt.
That was the traditional very low pole.
Now he's going to attempt to go under a line of 4x4s.
Well, it's one way to check for oil leaks.
Nobody knows what that boy's going to do next.
His career's in limbo(!)
Let's welcome wonderful Copenhagen-based magician Dogzini.
He's a Great Dane! Sorry(!)
Dogzini is a brilliant performer, but a word of warning -
don't get too close to him.
Not because you'll see how the magic's done,
he just has REALLY stinky breath.
His best trick is pulling a rabbit out of his hat
and then chasing it for 20 minutes.
Now, this will be brilliant.
He's going to make that lighthouse disappear.
Hang on, all he's done is swipe his phone to a different photo.
That's not much of a...trick?!
Vanishing a lighthouse is all very well
but here's a more practical use for your magic skills.
Please let that be my street.
Now, I promise, this trick does involve more than just a random bloke chewing gum.
The worst part is, he found that gum stuck under the balcony railings.
This is what I'd call a hat trick.
What's even more impressive
is that there's a rabbit in that hat as well.
-Here's what I want you to do, I want you to pick any card.
Now, I want you to write your name
and the first six digits of your phone number on it.
Magician Stuart Edge is going to some extreme lengths to get
this girl's phone number.
I want you to put that card anywhere you'd like in the deck right there.
If the leather jacket with shirt and tie hasn't put her off yet,
then nothing will.
Where did he go?
Best not to try doing magic tricks in front of oncoming vehicles.
Stuart may have terrible fashion sense, but he is a trained magician.
Is she amazed or is she just looking for a taxi
to get the heck out of there?
Is this your card?
Oh, too late. Guess who's back?
Now, that's what I call a pick-up truck!
Magic really does light up your life sometimes.
Oh, great, my favourite subject - food.
I've seen a lot of magic tricks but he takes the biscuit.
Well, he sort of takes the middle bit of the biscuit. Yeah.
Time now for our big finish.
You can never find a Rubik's Cube when you need one, can you?
Thankfully, magician Yip has the perfect solution for all of your
THEY CONVERSE IN OWN LANGUAGE
What's he doing? This isn't like when the baddie tries
to take out Indiana Jones' heart in the Temple of Doom, is it?
Amazing! It takes real talent to pull something
THAT 1980s out of a T-shirt.
For his next trick,
he's going to pull an Atari out of some legwarmers.
Yeah, that's all well and good but what would actually be much more
impressive is if he could...solve it?
Oh, right, well, yeah. Fair enough.
Remember, always put things back where you found them,
just to freak people out that little bit more.
Join us next time
for more magical snacks,
and floating hats,
on Now You See It.
In this show we finally answer the big question 'If a dog could do magic, what trick would it do?'. We turn traffic wardens into a tizzy, take limbo rollerskating to new heights and twist an eye-popping illusion involving a Rubik's Cube and an ordinary T-shirt. But is that all? Of course not - we've also got spinning hats, a motorcar meltdown and people who really want to get their hands on a floating fiver. And Mel Geidroyc!
