Prepare to be blown away.

0:00:020:00:03

Not only have we got the best magic,

0:00:030:00:05

we've got amazing stunts and other baffling clips.

0:00:050:00:07

Well, who would put themselves through this?

0:00:070:00:10

The bottle off my head.

0:00:100:00:11

Oh!

0:00:110:00:13

Welcome to Now You See It.

0:00:130:00:14

Magic time.

0:00:270:00:28

That's how the builder did my extension.

0:00:280:00:32

Magic marker.

0:00:320:00:34

And that's how to make some quick money in Leicester Square

0:00:340:00:36

doing portraits.

0:00:360:00:37

Hey!

0:00:370:00:39

I think this is the low-budget Latvian remake of Up.

0:00:430:00:46

Danny Cole is flouting the laws of physics.

0:00:500:00:52

Now, please don't try that, or you will be arrested by Stephen Hawking.

0:00:520:00:56

You know, I'm not sure those balloons will get him to Peru.

0:01:010:01:04

Either way, I think he's got further than Britain's space programme.

0:01:080:01:12

Time now to look at a genius in action

0:01:170:01:19

as we see the magic of Justin Willman.

0:01:190:01:21

Now, if that's a Banksy, it's worth a million quid.

0:01:250:01:27

Don't smudge it, you fool!

0:01:270:01:29

This act is off the wall.

0:01:390:01:41

It's literally off the wall.

0:01:410:01:43

Now the balloon has gone, it looks like he's got

0:02:010:02:03

a really long loose thread sticking out of his T-shirt.

0:02:030:02:06

Goodness me, how did he tie that knot so quickly?

0:02:070:02:11

Tying a balloon is like wrestling a slippery tympole.

0:02:110:02:14

Art coming to life.

0:02:310:02:33

Just don't hand him a comic with the Incredible Hulk in it. Carnage!

0:02:330:02:37

But now a word of warning to you all.

0:02:460:02:48

Never trust your phone to a magician.

0:02:480:02:51

Even if, or perhaps especially if,

0:02:510:02:53

that magician is the brilliant Andrew Maine.

0:02:530:02:56

-Go on, take out your phone.

-I'll give a complete stranger my phone.

0:02:570:03:01

It's all right. Don't worry.

0:03:010:03:03

It's going to be the safest it's ever been.

0:03:030:03:06

Swipe. Isn't it cool?

0:03:060:03:08

-It's like so secure...

-Amazing already. Cantaloupes for 99 cents?!

0:03:090:03:13

And you know what? Just for extra protection, I'll use one of these.

0:03:140:03:18

-OK. Protection from what?

-From everything.

0:03:180:03:22

OK. What are you going to do to my phone?

0:03:230:03:26

I'm regretting this decision.

0:03:270:03:29

You look really, really insecure right now.

0:03:290:03:33

I just don't know what you're going to do to my phone.

0:03:330:03:35

-I'm a little nervous.

-We are protecting your phone.

0:03:350:03:38

-Where's my phone?!

-You know what's better than just plastic and paper?

0:03:410:03:45

Glass.

0:03:450:03:47

What?! No way! No...

0:03:490:03:52

No way! How did you...?

0:03:520:03:54

Can I get some help on...

0:03:560:03:58

whatever aisle this is?

0:03:580:03:59

She's not suspicious about the giant pyramid of dill pickles,

0:03:590:04:03

you know like you don't get in supermarkets?

0:04:030:04:06

-They weren't going to sell all those dill pickles anyway.

-Oh, no!

0:04:060:04:10

PHONE RINGS

0:04:110:04:12

-Hello?

-'I told you that would be safe!'

-Where are you?!

0:04:120:04:17

It's like the weirdest opening to a romantic movie ever.

0:04:170:04:20

Are you hungry? This one's not touching the floor.

0:04:200:04:22

How about I feed you?

0:04:220:04:24

-Oh!

-I like the way you just dove right into that.

-So good.

0:04:250:04:28

Well, these chaps are smart with their money.

0:04:280:04:32

Yes, coin bouncing.

0:04:320:04:34

A skill that's as difficult to master as it is utterly useless.

0:04:340:04:38

Unless you find it a real effort to get up to use your piggy bank.

0:04:380:04:41

Many boys get into magic to impress beautiful girls.

0:04:430:04:47

What card are you thinking about?

0:04:470:04:48

But typically, once he's actually spoken to one,

0:04:520:04:55

this guy has to run and hide in a dark hole.

0:04:550:04:58

I hope he hasn't annoyed any of his co-conspirators

0:05:050:05:08

who are shutting him in there.

0:05:080:05:09

This is a trick, obvs, that works better when the tide is going out.

0:05:160:05:21

So, your friend has a boomerang which he plans to use

0:05:220:05:25

-to knock a bottle off your head.

-A bottle on my head.

0:05:250:05:27

What could possibly go wrong?

0:05:270:05:29

Oh, and please don't throw boomerangs at your friends' heads.

0:05:310:05:34

Get the bottle off my head. Ow.

0:05:340:05:37

Well, in a roundabout way he was right.

0:05:370:05:40

Right in the back of the head!

0:05:420:05:43

Let's look at that again.

0:05:430:05:45

Thankfully further away. Listen out for the noise.

0:05:450:05:47

SMACK! Ow!

0:05:490:05:51

It's all right, they're neighbours.

0:05:510:05:53

They're always going to be good friends.

0:05:530:05:55

Oh-ho!

0:05:560:05:57

Well, we've said it before, but it can't be emphasised enough,

0:06:010:06:04

never trust your phone to a magician.

0:06:040:06:06

Seriously.

0:06:060:06:07

Even in Germany, it seems people freely hand over their mobile phones

0:06:140:06:17

to total strangers

0:06:170:06:18

Could be worse, could be in a jar of dill pickles.

0:06:390:06:42

Well, bending it has made the reception very poor,

0:06:510:06:54

not least from the owner.

0:06:540:06:55

Yeah, I think he wants you to wait.

0:07:060:07:08

Of course, in the next couple of days,

0:07:290:07:32

that phone will be out of date.

0:07:320:07:33

Technology changes so quickly now.

0:07:330:07:35

Let's wrap the show with our Big Finish,

0:07:400:07:43

and we travel all the way to Vegas,

0:07:430:07:44

often known as the Vegas of America.

0:07:440:07:46

Steve Wyrick is going to do an incredible illusion

0:07:460:07:49

with a car, and it's really not one you should try yourself.

0:07:490:07:52

Steve is a full-time magician.

0:07:520:07:54

Plus, crucially, he has a driving licence.

0:07:540:07:57

It's a real race against time as Steve has to escape

0:07:590:08:02

from being in the route of a speeding Ford Mustang,

0:08:020:08:04

driven by a world champion driver.

0:08:040:08:06

Oh, and he's manacled to the spot.

0:08:060:08:09

That's not easy.

0:08:090:08:11

Well, it sounds like he's taking a big gamble,

0:08:110:08:13

and if there's one thing they frown on in Las Vegas, it's gambling.

0:08:130:08:17

That's a lot of smoke!

0:08:230:08:25

Is Steve doing a magic trick,

0:08:250:08:26

or getting ready to audition for Simon Cowell?

0:08:260:08:29

The way he's hammering that clutch, my guess is that it's a hire car.

0:08:320:08:36

Oh, crikey, where's he gone?

0:08:380:08:39

Er, less of the doughnuts.

0:08:410:08:43

You've just obliterated a world-class magician.

0:08:430:08:46

Shouldn't somebody alert the emergency services,

0:08:480:08:50

or at least alert Tom Jones to a vacancy at Caesar's Palace?

0:08:500:08:54

Thank heavens! Steve is now the driver.

0:08:590:09:02

Sadly after his test,

0:09:040:09:05

Steve discovered he failed on three majors and six minors.

0:09:050:09:08

A shame, as his parallel parking was spot on. Oh, well, Steve, next time.

0:09:080:09:12

That's it. Join us again for more magic, mystery, and pranks...

0:09:140:09:20

..on Now You See It.

0:09:240:09:26

Right in the back of the head!

0:09:260:09:28

Just how many tricks, prank and stunts can the Now You See It team squeeze into a ten-minute episode? Rich Ferguson has a scary chair prank to make you jump out of your seat, a German magician bends smart phones, and we've got a boomerang stunt from - you guessed it - Australia. All that and a high-octane car trick in Las Vegas that you won't want to miss!
