Prepare to be amazed by what you see over the next few magical minutes.

0:00:010:00:05

You'll believe a man can walk on air.

0:00:060:00:09

Or catch Ping-Pong balls with a fork! Eh? Welcome to Now You See It.

0:00:090:00:14

Well, I've not seen anyone tidy like this since Mary Poppins.

0:00:260:00:29

WHIZZ

0:00:290:00:32

Just think what he could achieve if he put his phone down.

0:00:320:00:34

Take note, kids.

0:00:340:00:35

Is it a ball? Is it a bird?

0:00:390:00:42

Is it a...

0:00:420:00:43

Oh, yeah. It's a bird.

0:00:430:00:45

The world's largest slingshot.

0:00:450:00:47

Now, if you're watching on a small phone, he's right.

0:00:470:00:49

But he's got a normal size basketball.

0:00:490:00:51

THEY CHEER

0:00:540:00:56

Never thought that guy would be a tree-hugger!

0:00:580:01:00

Something tells me they're pretty happy with that.

0:01:020:01:04

No wonder, they've been trying to do it solidly for six weeks.

0:01:040:01:08

Time for a change of clothes, guys, come on.

0:01:090:01:11

Alex Ramon has a novel way of making magic even more exciting.

0:01:140:01:18

Watch the card very carefully.

0:01:180:01:20

It changes from the four, to the six of diamonds.

0:01:200:01:22

Brilliant!

0:01:220:01:24

Plus, he managed to complete the trick before he smashed into a tree.

0:01:240:01:27

OK! To Holland. Well, I think it's Holland.

0:01:280:01:31

Something somewhere is giving it away.

0:01:310:01:33

Ah, look, two Dutch ladies. Double Dutch!

0:01:330:01:36

Oh, those are big holes. Has anyone seen a giant mouse about?

0:01:380:01:41

Importantly, the girls check that this is

0:01:420:01:44

just an ordinary slice of cheese.

0:01:440:01:45

No trapdoors or anything.

0:01:450:01:48

But why? Well, watch this.

0:01:480:01:50

HE SPEAKS OWN LANGUAGE

0:01:520:01:54

Ooh, the holes are vanishing in that Dutch cheese.

0:01:570:02:00

Or, as the Dutch call it, cheese.

0:02:000:02:02

And the last one.

0:02:110:02:12

You know, as cheese tricks go, that was a Gouda one.

0:02:150:02:18

Fancy doing some trickery yourself?

0:02:220:02:24

Well, pay close attention as we open up...

0:02:240:02:26

And, tonight, there's just one simple rule,

0:02:290:02:32

but it's an important one.

0:02:320:02:33

Be very, very careful when choosing your venue.

0:02:330:02:37

Sharp-eyed viewers may just spot a fatal mistake.

0:02:380:02:41

Magic's all smoke and mirrors,

0:02:450:02:47

but this trick needs a lot more smoke, and a bit less mirror.

0:02:470:02:50

Er, we can still see you, I'm afraid.

0:02:510:02:53

Oh, great, more rubbish magic.

0:02:580:03:00

Oh, no, it's Ping-Pong... or maybe bin-pong.

0:03:010:03:04

Well caught. You do realise humans are non-recyclable.

0:03:050:03:09

Now, we challenge everything that you hold dear about magic,

0:03:090:03:12

as we introduce you to today's...

0:03:120:03:13

It's an enormous chicken.

0:03:180:03:20

Oh, the hormones they put in food these days, eh?

0:03:200:03:23

Oh, no, it's actually a Charlie Chaplain lookalike.

0:03:260:03:28

So, let's just see how appealing this fun-filled creature is

0:03:300:03:33

to children.

0:03:330:03:34

Oh, dear.

0:03:340:03:36

More insanity here. Has anyone told Network Rail about this?

0:03:420:03:46

DARTH VADER'S MECHANICAL BREATHING

0:03:460:03:48

"You are unwise to raise those defences." Star Wars line.

0:03:480:03:52

Terrible impression.

0:03:520:03:53

Here's another man in black who's able to use the force.

0:03:550:03:58

If you feel like your life's going round in circles,

0:03:590:04:02

this hobby isn't the one for you.

0:04:020:04:03

Pretty dazzling, although I'm not sure how it's going to help him

0:04:040:04:07

defeat the Rebel Alliance.

0:04:070:04:08

Xavier Mortimer's trying to magic up the perfect

0:04:130:04:15

implement for eating ice cream.

0:04:150:04:17

Hmm... A knife. Well, that's no good.

0:04:170:04:20

Chopsticks? I don't think so.

0:04:300:04:32

Ahh, at last! A spoon!

0:04:380:04:40

But I wouldn't hang about for too much longer, if I were you.

0:04:430:04:46

Too late. Yeah, the ice cream's melted.

0:04:460:04:48

Pick any card you like in the deck, and remember it. Ready?

0:04:490:04:52

Now it's either one or two,

0:04:540:04:55

you either went for the front one, five of spades.

0:04:550:04:58

-Actually, no. Mine was the...

-If not...

-Ooh, three of clubs! Wow!

0:04:580:05:02

Chris Korn's on a date with ex-EastEnder, Samantha Womack, to see

0:05:020:05:05

Agatha Christie's Mouse Trap, while it's on a limited run of 64 years.

0:05:050:05:09

I'm going to show you an interesting way to get two tickets for one.

0:05:110:05:15

Yeah, but it's not 2-4-1 Wednesdays, Chris.

0:05:150:05:17

Time to use your magic.

0:05:170:05:18

There you go. Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:05:180:05:20

Now, I'm going to hold my hand here. Slide your hand against mine.

0:05:200:05:25

Slide it against mine. Now, I need you to stay completely still.

0:05:250:05:30

Stay completely still.

0:05:300:05:31

-Yeah, don't drop the ticket.

-OK.

-Don't drop it.

0:05:320:05:34

-Slowly...

-Ahh!

0:05:390:05:42

-Can you feel it?

-Yeah!

-Feel that?

0:05:470:05:50

Great. Or you could just slide it under the door.

0:05:520:05:54

So I can join you at the theatre.

0:05:560:05:58

Unfortunately, they do have to sit in the same seat,

0:05:580:06:00

on each other's knees.

0:06:000:06:02

Here's Calen Morelli's tip for getting dressed in a hurry.

0:06:030:06:06

I'm going to roll it up and put it into this air cannon.

0:06:060:06:08

That's a pressurised air canister,

0:06:080:06:10

used to fire T-shirts at magician's who've over slept.

0:06:100:06:13

All right, I want you guy's to watch closely.

0:06:130:06:15

All you got to do is watch my chest.

0:06:150:06:17

That's not your chest, Calen. That's your stomach.

0:06:170:06:19

All right, on the count of three. One... Two... Three

0:06:230:06:28

Now, remember, if you're not a magician,

0:06:280:06:30

don't fire any kind of clothing, or anything, at anyone.

0:06:300:06:33

But now, it's time for our big finish.

0:06:360:06:39

Over to DMC, who's risking life and all his limbs in one amazing stunt.

0:06:390:06:44

Using just two trucks pulling in opposite directions,

0:06:470:06:50

this wooden pallet will split in two.

0:06:500:06:52

Ta-da!

0:06:520:06:54

Oh, that's not much of a trick.

0:06:540:06:56

Oh, hang on. There's more.

0:06:560:06:59

-There's no going back.

-How are you feeling right now, Mr DMC?

0:06:590:07:03

Now, the biggest danger I face is my own fear.

0:07:030:07:06

That, and the danger of not looking to your left

0:07:060:07:08

and right, with all these speeding trucks on the road.

0:07:080:07:11

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you very much for coming.

0:07:140:07:17

So posh.

0:07:170:07:18

Please place your fists out, like this. This one goes on here.

0:07:190:07:22

Why is he handcuffing his mum?

0:07:220:07:24

Give them a good wrestle. Play with them.

0:07:250:07:29

Press something, see if anything gives.

0:07:290:07:31

OK, so what I'm going to do, two ways to get out of these.

0:07:310:07:34

One is with this handcuff key...

0:07:350:07:38

which I'm going to leave with you. That is for you.

0:07:380:07:41

Could you hold on to that?

0:07:410:07:42

And the other is this bobby pin, which I will use to pick the lock.

0:07:420:07:48

Apparently you can't take part in this trick if you've got any hair.

0:07:500:07:53

DMC needs to pick the lock on those handcuffs,

0:07:560:07:58

then slip out the ropes before the trucks go past and pull his arms off.

0:07:580:08:02

So, just another Wednesday, really.

0:08:020:08:04

Now, even if you too are well-dressed

0:08:070:08:08

and well-brought up,

0:08:080:08:09

please leave tricks like this to the professionals.

0:08:090:08:12

Now it's just him, his mum, the crowd, the trucks

0:08:140:08:18

and just out of shot, a 30-piece orchestra making that music.

0:08:180:08:21

And...three...two...one... Action!

0:08:260:08:31

HE GRUNTS

0:08:360:08:38

I think that helicopter is so they can look for his arms

0:08:380:08:40

if the trick goes wrong.

0:08:400:08:42

HE YELLS

0:08:470:08:49

You've got to get it off, get it off, get it off!

0:08:490:08:51

Get it off!

0:08:510:08:53

No, no, no!

0:08:540:08:55

Ooh, his glands are up.

0:09:080:09:10

Obviously, it goes without saying, don't try this at home.

0:09:100:09:14

It does work better on a deserted runway.

0:09:140:09:16

No, look out. They're coming back!

0:09:160:09:18

That's all for now, but join me next time for more spellbinding magic

0:09:180:09:22

and extraordinary feats

0:09:220:09:24

on Now You See It.

0:09:240:09:26

We've got the world's largest slingshot, a cheesy magic trick all the way from Holland, and DMC takes on a couple of speeding lorries in a spectacular Big Finish. Oh and Darth Vader makes an appearance. At least I think it's Darth Vader, it's hard to tell with that mask on.
