..and Joey Essex goes back to the future.
Is that Michael Jackson?

Welcome to Now You See It.
You've heard of magicians cutting a woman in half,
well, this one's cutting a Pink Lady in half.
Slow way to make a fruit salad.
Apples may keep doctors away, but they're like catnip to magicians.
He's not entirely happy with it, though.
It's gone from red to green -
does that mean he can eat it or it's safe to cross the road?
Though magicians can be very fussy eaters.
This one will only eat the centre of
his nonspecific American brand of biscuit.
And even then, it's touch-and-go whether he'll like it or not.
In it goes.
Oh, spat straight out. Don't offer it to me!
Do you have anything on you, like a bill I could borrow?
Mat Franco here is on the scrounge for money from some students.
-Take that out, if you could.
-Bit of a turnaround.
If you could take a picture of it,
but make sure you get the serial number in the picture.
Perfect. Fold it in half once with the serial number facing out
so you'll be able to recognise it if you see it again.
OK. And, let's see here, you have some stuff over here.
Yeah, I just went grocery shopping inside.
You did some shopping! Do you have any good stuff in there?
Don't be silly, they're students.
I've got some ramen, a Monster, M&Ms.
Ramen, I practically lived off that when I was a student over here.
That's cool. Could you... Actually, just hold that in your hand.
Just like that, perfect. I'm not going to touch it.
All right, watch this. Don't blink, or you'll miss it.
OK? This is your bill.
Watch, one, two, three.
This is the flavour packet.
Those flavour packets are full of salt, you know.
They'd be better off eating the dollar bill.
But where's that gone?
Looks like you're not eating dinner tonight, Kelly!
Could you break apart the noodles carefully?
Are you kidding?!
Phew! Cos if they'd lost that dollar,
those students wouldn't eat for the next three days.
Turn it towards the camera.
Show to the camera. Bring your phone.
Yep, exactly the same note.
Some great magic so far.
But time now for a very special Magic Moment.
OK, there's nothing special about this trick.
Ball into cup, very bog-standard.
The audience is looking pretty nonplussed too,
it's not exactly Dynamo, is it?
But with just a little shake, open the cup, the ball's not there,
No wonder this video went viral.
Can't wait to see him try it on the hyenas.
You crazy guy.
What? One animal clip not enough for you?
Well, let's take a look at another one, with more Animal Magic.
Here's Japanese international cat sensation Maru
showing his fans how tidy he is.
See? He puts himself away after he's finished playing.
But keep watching.
Whoa! A very top drawer bit of magic.
Although, strictly speaking,
that drawer is for knives, forks and dogs.
So this morning...
OK, we're back with the genius that is Michael Carbonero,
today pulling a traditional
first-day-on-the-job prank with this young fellow.
They have a lot of people who just, like, hire guys like us to clean
their boats and polish them and wax them and stuff.
So this morning, I've just been... Like, I did all these boats
over here, the fibreglass ones, I put it on everything.
They say you put a thin coat of this stuff, it reeks,
I've been throwing them away.
And then you activate it with water.
-Just spray the water on it and activate it.
So I'll show you how we do that.
-Here, you want to do that side?
Flip this. And we'll do...
-Get that side.
-Oh, you hit this thing too?
-Yeah, a little bit.
-"This thing," or, "a paddle," as we call it here.
Honestly, the American school system.
Good. And then with the wood stuff, it's not that sunny,
but wood stuff's not supposed to get that much of, like, direct sunlight.
-So I cover the wood stuff up
while that sets,
Is it like...? Oh, my gosh.
-Did you just shrink someone's boat?
-That's not funny.
"Did you just shrink someone's boat?"
That's a great name for Vince Vaughn's next film.
Does it get bigger?
I don't know.
-Do you want to radio in?
-I don't want to radio in, no,
cos I don't want to get in trouble.
Yeah, but, I don't think there's really any way around this.
I can't believe that happened.
-Dude, I'm going to say you did it.
It's like Jaws - "We're going to need a bigger boat."
But how did that stunt go down with our magic fan?
Yeah, pretty well.
Ah, the truly awe-inspiring sight
of a magician at the height of his powers.
This is quite simply astonishing stuff from Daniel Chesterfield.
Who would like to make it clear that any similarity between his name
and that of David Copperfield is entirely deliberate.
Just look at that!
Here he is moving a tram using only the power of a tram.
Daniel Chesterfield, everyone.
Give it up.
Dynamo's in India, placing a lighted candle on the River Ganges
and making it float away.
PEOPLE GASP AND CHEER
The crowd's already impressed, but watch this.
I don't know whose birthday it is, but they're really old.
That is lit.
Plus it provides an exciting assault course
for the handful of people enjoying an evening swim.
From the sublime to the ridiculous now with a very confused Joey Essex
in our Big Finish.
-Do you want to come see the hangar?
-What are we actually doing?
-We're going to a hangar.
What's a hangar?
It's where you hang planes up.
Ben Hanlin is out to prove Abe Lincoln was right
in saying you can fool some of the people all of the time.
Oh, hello, Joey Essex.
If time didn't just move linear, if it moved cyclical,
then you can bend it. If you can bend the light, you can bend time.
See what I mean?
-Do you know what I mean?
Come round here, come into the demo zone.
Stand here, let me show you.
You're going to love this. It's wicked.
It's going to proper freak you out.
All right, mate, stay there.
Wisely, Joey is left in his own containment zone
to keep him safe from himself.
Looking more confused than ever now, Joey.
You see how the light displaced it.
-That, when I said the light displaced,
for you, I was only gone, what, a couple of seconds?
I've changed time.
-I went back to the '80s.
-Is that Michael Jackson?
MUSIC: Smooth Criminal by Michael Jackson
Oh, my God.
Did you see how we went back in time?
-You saw that?
-Yes, I don't know...
I don't know how you get from there to there. I don't get it.
Have you ever seen anything disappear like that before?
-You've ever seen anyone time travel like that before?
-It's good, isn't it?
-Yeah, pretty decent.
Or as Joey says...
Whatever that means.
Now that's your lot, but join us next time for more Now You See It.
Now, if you don't mind, I think at last I've found someone
who will find my jokes funny.
What's white and swings through trees?
Joey Essex and Ben Hanlin go time travelling, Mat Franco uses noodles to shock some students, and the always entertaining Dynamo is in India to show us how to celebrate a birthday in style. Also, Michael Carbonaro has a little trouble with a shrinking boat, and we head to the zoo to meet a very excitable orangutan magic fan.
