Get ready for some uplifting tricks.
As quick as a flash things can change!
So don't be sheepish
as we plunge right in.
How is that even possible?
Welcome to Now You See It.
Let's start off, as I never do, with a workout at the gym.
And a ball that magically gets bigger.
I think someone's going to notice
when he puts that back on the snooker table!
Does that count as eating your greens?
Is that Cristiano Ronaldo?
Ooh, it's illusionist Darcey Oake on the Megabus.
Cut out the horseplay - you'll distract the driver.
He's bunked off.
-What do you mean, he's gone?
Yes, I know he's gone, but where's he gone?!
Ah, great trick, mate.
Oh, but the lights have turned green. See you later!
Now, here's a sight that's all too familiar in homes across Britain.
You ask some friends round to help assemble that Ikea book shelf,
and then get in a bit of a muddle over the instructions.
And even more annoyingly for this lot...
..there's the doorbell!
That'll be the pizza.
Hey, I wonder if that works with just one person in a chair.
Here goes. Take it away.
No, no, it...it doesn't.
This is one traffic warden you don't want to mess with.
Got to move the car.
There's a sign right there that says "No standing." You can't be here.
Why should I move now? You just gave me a ticket.
Well, just doing my job, so how about you move that car, huh?
-I'm not moving.
-I'm going to give you some help, all right?
Oh, that's impressive.
Normally it's the cab that picks up the person!
They've never seen a New York taxi go this long
without beeping its horn.
-How about this, huh?
And it was at this point that she remembered she needed a cab home.
Good luck with that!
Not all magic requires a show of brute force.
Here's Moritz Mueller showing its gentler side.
Great fun, unless you're stuck behind him
in the queue at the vending machine.
And I'm loving those fairy lights!
A trip to the aquarium now,
and a heavily disguised Cyril Takayama is up to something fishy.
-Do you like that one?
-The black one?
-Yeah, the black one right there.
-I think it's beautiful.
-Let me try this...
Put that right there like this.
And just push through...
They're thinking, "She's got a very hairy hand for an old lady."
-How did you do that?
-You just grab the ring right here...
Just pull that out right here like this...
That terrified the goldfish, but on the plus side,
two seconds later it had forgotten all about it.
Oh, look at that!
-Do you like this one?
-I love it.
Then this one's going to be the gift for my granddaughter. I love it.
I think you've got to pay for that.
Yeah, cos her walking off without paying would be the weirdest thing to happen here!
You know what I haven't seen enough of?
Magic tricks with cups of coffee, so let's put that right
with a section I call Magic Tricks With Cups Of Coffee.
Justin Flom's in Alaska, enjoying an instant coffee.
So-called because it vanishes in an instant.
Turn round, Justin! That view's amazing!
-I'm Dynamo. What's your name?
Sorry, what was that?
Nicassio, Kareem and...
-Brian, yeah, OK. Carry on. Sorry, Dynamo.
-Can I try something with you, Kareem?
-Just think of someone kind of close to you.
-Is it Brian?
Just visualise them in your mind right now. Look at me.
This might sound really weird, but...
I'm kind of getting the name Nicole. I'm getting someone called Nicole.
-Can I take one of these coffees?
-Yeah, go for it.
Can I just take the lid off, actually?
-Take a sip? Oh, take the lid off.
-Take the lid.
Pretty clever, and slightly more personal
than just writing your name on the side of the cup.
I'll drink to my sister.
Only in the world of magic would you end up drinking your sister's face.
Back to Justin now for some animal magic.
Specifically, animals joining in with the magic.
He's picked a card, he's eaten the card.
Don't worry, Justin - you'll get that back in 24 hours.
A finale I really don't want to see.
Right, so doing magic with camels is a disaster.
Let's be a bit more sensible...
and get some sheep to join in instead.
And the sheep's picked the three of spa-a-ades.
What about this sheep?
Yeah, three of spades again.
Is it just me or are farmers not as busy as they make out?
Oh, don't try this at home.
It's not dangerous - you just wouldn't believe the mess
they can make on your living room carpet.
Here's the best pet shop salesman ever. Bird in a cage, sir?
Bird in a party popper, madam? Couple of cages?
Plain dove. Go on - take a dove. Bird in a cage?
Plain dove. Roast dove.
Bog off. Just...just buy something.
This show needs a grand finale.
So we're off to join magician Mat Franco for our big finish.
He's in Boston,
where he'll be dumbfounding top American footballer Rob Gronkowski.
-How're you doing?
-This is my trainer, Dana.
-What's up, Dana?
Yeah - sorry to keep interrupting, but can I just hear that name again?
This is my trainer, Dana.
He's got a trainer called Dana! Brilliant! Right, back to the trick.
You play football, I do a little bit of magic,
but both, you know, precision and accuracy is important for both.
-Let's try something.
-Is that cool?
You see that cone behind you?
-I want you to throw the ball
and just try to get it as close to that cone as you can.
-That was good on the first bounce, though.
-Face me. Can I borrow that towel?
-And do you have your phone on you?
Let me steal that from you for a second if I can.
I'll take it.
Now, if I were to throw the phone and try to get it as close
to the cone as possible, would you feel OK with me doing that or not?
-I'm OK with you throwing his phone.
-You're OK with me doing it?
Trainer Dana's happy for Rob's phone to be thrown at a cone.
Let's see how close I can get it.
Where did my phone go?
-Hold on - stop for a second. Can you call him?
-I'm calling it.
-Do you hear anything?
Come this way a little bit.
This trick doesn't work quite so well when the phone's on silent.
-I don't see anything.
Anyone... Someone have, like, something sharp like a knife?
Something sharp like a knife, or better still, a knife!
-Can I shake it?
-Come down here with me.
-Do what - through the ball?
Look inside there.
-You see something in there?
-Seriously, no way!
-Hold out your hand, actually - just...
Can you grab it?
-Reach in there.
You got it? Check that out.
Seriously, no way!
And I got a missed call from you.
-Who called you?
Dana the trainer phoned you.
Dude, that was, like, impossible!
-Let me see this football.
-Check it out.
How'd the phone get from there to here?
For real! How'd you do that?
Now, saddle up the, er, camel. I'm out of here. Could be a bumpy ride.
Join us next time on Now You See It.
