Prepare to be blown away.
Not only have we got the best magic,
we've got amazing stunts and other baffling clips.
Well, who would put themselves through this?
The bottle off my head.
Welcome to Now You See It.
That's how the builder did my extension.
And that's how to make some quick money in Leicester Square
I think this is the low-budget Latvian remake of Up.
Danny Cole is flouting the laws of physics.
Now, please don't try that, or you will be arrested by Stephen Hawking.
You know, I'm not sure those balloons will get him to Peru.
Either way, I think he's got further than Britain's space programme.
Time now to look at a genius in action
as we see the magic of Justin Willman.
Now, if that's a Banksy, it's worth a million quid.
Don't smudge it, you fool!
This act is off the wall.
It's literally off the wall.
Now the balloon has gone, it looks like he's got
a really long loose thread sticking out of his T-shirt.
Goodness me, how did he tie that knot so quickly?
Tying a balloon is like wrestling a slippery tympole.
Art coming to life.
Just don't hand him a comic with the Incredible Hulk in it. Carnage!
But now a word of warning to you all.
Never trust your phone to a magician.
Even if, or perhaps especially if,
that magician is the brilliant Andrew Maine.
-Go on, take out your phone.
-I'll give a complete stranger my phone.
It's all right. Don't worry.
It's going to be the safest it's ever been.
Swipe. Isn't it cool?
-It's like so secure...
-Amazing already. Cantaloupes for 99 cents?!
And you know what? Just for extra protection, I'll use one of these.
-OK. Protection from what?
OK. What are you going to do to my phone?
I'm regretting this decision.
You look really, really insecure right now.
I just don't know what you're going to do to my phone.
-I'm a little nervous.
-We are protecting your phone.
-Where's my phone?!
-You know what's better than just plastic and paper?
What?! No way! No...
No way! How did you...?
Can I get some help on...
whatever aisle this is?
She's not suspicious about the giant pyramid of dill pickles,
you know like you don't get in supermarkets?
-They weren't going to sell all those dill pickles anyway.
-'I told you that would be safe!'
-Where are you?!
It's like the weirdest opening to a romantic movie ever.
Are you hungry? This one's not touching the floor.
How about I feed you?
-I like the way you just dove right into that.
Well, these chaps are smart with their money.
Yes, coin bouncing.
A skill that's as difficult to master as it is utterly useless.
Unless you find it a real effort to get up to use your piggy bank.
Many boys get into magic to impress beautiful girls.
What card are you thinking about?
But typically, once he's actually spoken to one,
this guy has to run and hide in a dark hole.
I hope he hasn't annoyed any of his co-conspirators
who are shutting him in there.
This is a trick, obvs, that works better when the tide is going out.
So, your friend has a boomerang which he plans to use
-to knock a bottle off your head.
-A bottle on my head.
What could possibly go wrong?
Oh, and please don't throw boomerangs at your friends' heads.
Get the bottle off my head. Ow.
Well, in a roundabout way he was right.
Right in the back of the head!
Let's look at that again.
Thankfully further away. Listen out for the noise.
It's all right, they're neighbours.
They're always going to be good friends.
Well, we've said it before, but it can't be emphasised enough,
never trust your phone to a magician.
Even in Germany, it seems people freely hand over their mobile phones
to total strangers
Could be worse, could be in a jar of dill pickles.
Well, bending it has made the reception very poor,
not least from the owner.
Yeah, I think he wants you to wait.
Of course, in the next couple of days,
that phone will be out of date.
Technology changes so quickly now.
Let's wrap the show with our Big Finish,
and we travel all the way to Vegas,
often known as the Vegas of America.
Steve Wyrick is going to do an incredible illusion
with a car, and it's really not one you should try yourself.
Steve is a full-time magician.
Plus, crucially, he has a driving licence.
It's a real race against time as Steve has to escape
from being in the route of a speeding Ford Mustang,
driven by a world champion driver.
Oh, and he's manacled to the spot.
That's not easy.
Well, it sounds like he's taking a big gamble,
and if there's one thing they frown on in Las Vegas, it's gambling.
That's a lot of smoke!
Is Steve doing a magic trick,
or getting ready to audition for Simon Cowell?
The way he's hammering that clutch, my guess is that it's a hire car.
Oh, crikey, where's he gone?
Er, less of the doughnuts.
You've just obliterated a world-class magician.
Shouldn't somebody alert the emergency services,
or at least alert Tom Jones to a vacancy at Caesar's Palace?
Thank heavens! Steve is now the driver.
Sadly after his test,
Steve discovered he failed on three majors and six minors.
A shame, as his parallel parking was spot on. Oh, well, Steve, next time.
That's it. Join us again for more magic, mystery, and pranks...
..on Now You See It.
Right in the back of the head!
