You can find magic all over the world.

0:00:020:00:03

In Japan... New Orleans...

0:00:030:00:05

Blackpool...

0:00:050:00:07

We've got illusions on sand, and a kitten in hand.

0:00:070:00:11

Welcome to Now You See It.

0:00:110:00:14

Here's one way to get rid of traffic jams.

0:00:250:00:27

Get out of the road!

0:00:270:00:30

HE GROANS

0:00:300:00:31

OK, just need to put the wipers on.

0:00:340:00:36

There's a magician stuck to the windscreen.

0:00:360:00:38

Ooh, that fresh 4 of diamonds smell is my favourite!

0:00:390:00:42

Keeping with the car theme,

0:00:440:00:45

it's time now to showcase a highly unusual skill as I exclaim,

0:00:450:00:49

"Crikey, you don't see that every day!"

0:00:490:00:51

One minute, it's a man in a weird costume...

0:00:540:00:57

the next, he's transformed himself into a truck!

0:00:570:00:59

When he's ill, I wonder, does he call an ambulance, or the AA?

0:01:000:01:03

This is one trick where you don't want a prankster

0:01:050:01:07

stuffing a potato in the exhaust pipe.

0:01:070:01:09

Let's be honest, you don't see that every day.

0:01:090:01:12

Cats, dogs, hamsters, gather round,

0:01:120:01:14

as it's now the part of the show we like to call Animal Magic!

0:01:140:01:17

And here's top American illusionist, Rick Thomas!

0:01:180:01:21

Pop the woman in the cage, nothing weird about that.

0:01:240:01:26

And a lovely straddle there.

0:01:350:01:36

Is this part of the trick, or is she asking for help in sign language?

0:01:400:01:44

Super scarf action.

0:01:460:01:48

Ooh, that's nearly a moonwalk!

0:01:540:01:56

They're absolutely loving this trick at the National Accountancy Awards.

0:02:030:02:07

I must say, Rick has some incredible dance moves in his back pocket.

0:02:120:02:15

I'm just wishing he'd bring them out and use them.

0:02:150:02:18

Not bad!

0:02:230:02:24

But I'm not sure he'd make it into the second week of Strictly.

0:02:250:02:28

Wow, I did not see that coming!

0:02:310:02:34

Tragically, neither did she.

0:02:340:02:36

Let's enjoy an even more impressive version of that trick.

0:02:390:02:42

It looks cute, but bear in mind that it's a savage beast

0:02:490:02:52

dragged from the ninth dimension.

0:02:520:02:54

And finally, a giant, genuine egg.

0:02:580:03:01

Although it was laid by the great 'Hen-dini'.

0:03:010:03:05

But what's going to be inside it?

0:03:050:03:08

This is the moment of truth, to see how many yolks is inside this egg.

0:03:080:03:11

Are you watching?

0:03:130:03:14

I really hope it's not a kitten.

0:03:160:03:17

Oh, my God!

0:03:210:03:24

Shut up!

0:03:260:03:28

No, you shut up!

0:03:280:03:30

You are having a laugh!

0:03:300:03:32

Naughty word!

0:03:320:03:34

That's an egg!

0:03:340:03:35

There's an egg inside the egg.

0:03:350:03:38

Which leads to the age-old question, which came first -

0:03:380:03:41

the chicken, or the egg? Or the egg inside the egg?

0:03:410:03:44

Right, hang on... This is unbelievable.

0:03:460:03:49

Oh, disappointing.

0:03:520:03:53

That's just two yolks, an egg inside an egg.

0:03:530:03:55

I was hoping it was going to be like one of those Russian dolls.

0:03:550:03:57

I can't believe that.

0:03:570:03:59

I cannot believe it.

0:03:590:04:00

I think it's fair to say he can't believe it.

0:04:000:04:02

You saw it here first!

0:04:020:04:04

More food-based magic now, from the brilliant Andrew Mayne.

0:04:040:04:08

Can you take one off?

0:04:080:04:09

But first, he needs some personal artefacts.

0:04:090:04:11

Yeah, see? You want to be very careful with this, OK?

0:04:110:04:14

-OK.

-You want to be very, very, very careful. All right?

0:04:140:04:17

-OK.

-Because the thing is, is out here, shiny objects...

0:04:170:04:20

Here, grab my wrist. Grab my wrist, hold on to the wrist.

0:04:200:04:22

Yeah. Don't let go, don't let go of the wrist.

0:04:220:04:25

What did you do?

0:04:300:04:31

Now we have a problem, I told you you had to be careful!

0:04:310:04:33

-Maybe it's in the food, let's take a look.

-Oh, my God!

0:04:330:04:36

Open up, open up, open up!

0:04:360:04:37

Come here, let's go over here. Come here.

0:04:370:04:40

-You open this up...

-OK.

0:04:400:04:43

Watch this... Open it up.

0:04:430:04:47

Your salad, here.

0:04:470:04:48

Let's just, you know what, just to be sure...

0:04:480:04:50

That's what I call a tossed salad.

0:04:500:04:52

Are you really serious?

0:04:520:04:54

That's not it. I got it, go ahead, stick your finger in it.

0:04:550:05:00

No, no, no...

0:05:000:05:02

Still no sign of the earring.

0:05:020:05:03

Do you have any other food?

0:05:030:05:05

No, all I have is-is my dressing.

0:05:050:05:07

All right, check that.

0:05:070:05:08

Dump it out.

0:05:120:05:13

This is my earring, covered in ranch...

0:05:180:05:21

-That's your earring?

-Dressing.

0:05:210:05:23

Well, that's one way to persuade her boyfriend to nibble her ear.

0:05:230:05:27

Word of advice, if a stranger asks you to hand over your jewellery,

0:05:270:05:30

they might not always be a magician.

0:05:300:05:32

And now, we arrive at the point in the show where we say,

0:05:340:05:37

It Worked In Rehearsal.

0:05:370:05:38

This Russian street magician will perform for anyone who'll watch.

0:05:400:05:44

He craves the love and approval of strangers.

0:05:440:05:47

He's a lean, mean, leaning machine!

0:05:470:05:50

They're impressed. So far, so good.

0:05:540:05:57

But to win them over completely, he needs to go one step further.

0:05:570:06:00

So having succeeded brilliantly leaning over dry land,

0:06:050:06:08

he now confidently demonstrates his skill at leaning over...

0:06:080:06:11

Oh, dear! Quick, call the emergency services

0:06:140:06:16

for when leaning stunts go wrong.

0:06:160:06:18

Here's the operator waiting to take his call.

0:06:200:06:22

Now, magician Lu Chen is taking some Japanese people

0:06:270:06:30

into a popular high street bakery.

0:06:300:06:33

They can't believe it, two steak bakes for £1.50!

0:06:330:06:36

Now watch that piece of patisserie very carefully.

0:06:360:06:39

Amazing! Its reflection's pink but it stayed yellow.

0:06:430:06:47

Oh, Mary Berry wouldn't like this!

0:06:500:06:52

She likes all the bakes to be uniform.

0:06:520:06:54

I was like that after my first triple espresso.

0:06:590:07:01

Wow!

0:07:030:07:04

What?! It's pink now!

0:07:120:07:14

SHE SCREAMS

0:07:140:07:16

Yeah, you're OK, mate, you finish it.

0:07:190:07:21

Here's a decaffeinated version of the trick.

0:07:230:07:26

Not only did it change colour, it's now gluten-free.

0:07:260:07:29

Time now for The Big Finish.

0:07:320:07:34

With the American master magician Criss Angel,

0:07:350:07:37

who this week is on his holidays.

0:07:370:07:40

Now I'm going to need a couple of people to help me out.

0:07:400:07:42

Hi, how are you? Do me a favour, go get somebody else,

0:07:440:07:47

I need one more person! Whoever you want, anybody at all!

0:07:470:07:50

Somebody right now! There she is!

0:07:500:07:53

Over here, and sign her hand for me.

0:07:540:07:56

Sign it big so everybody can see that.

0:07:560:07:58

Show the camera, Andy.

0:07:590:08:02

OK, good.

0:08:020:08:03

Now you have the camera, take it out of your bathing suit.

0:08:030:08:05

Can you record? To show everybody here, you guys!

0:08:050:08:08

Folks, there's absolutely nothing out on the water,

0:08:090:08:12

except for four jet skis going clockwise, right?

0:08:120:08:16

We have the Duke.

0:08:160:08:19

The Duke is a clipper ship, OK?

0:08:190:08:22

Over here, it's actually a sailboat, over here we have the Prince, right?

0:08:220:08:27

An ocean liner. Then over here, we've got the Caborey.

0:08:270:08:32

Uh, Chris, are you sure that's how you spell CABARET?

0:08:320:08:36

And last but not least, the Gorgeous, luxury yacht.

0:08:360:08:41

All of these ships have been all around the world.

0:08:410:08:44

Now what I want you to do,

0:08:440:08:45

is I want you to imagine yourself

0:08:450:08:49

being on one of these amazing ships, OK?

0:08:490:08:52

Get one ship in your mind, just one.

0:08:520:08:56

Visualise yourself on the ship, OK?

0:08:560:09:00

OK, you have it? On the count of three,

0:09:000:09:01

I want you to yell out what ship it is, OK?

0:09:010:09:04

-OK.

-Everybody help me out, on the count of three,

0:09:040:09:06

you're going to say 1-2-3 with me, all right?

0:09:060:09:08

Here we go, on the count of three!

0:09:080:09:10

One! Two! Three!

0:09:110:09:13

-What is it?

-Caborey!

-Caborey. Now!

0:09:130:09:17

Right there!

0:09:170:09:18

Whoa. That is actually amazing.

0:09:180:09:21

Chris just transported that assistant

0:09:210:09:23

onto a 100 million cruise liner!

0:09:230:09:27

And to think, Lu Chen got the same reactions with a macaroon.

0:09:270:09:30

SCREAMING

0:09:300:09:31

Join us next time for more cracking magic

0:09:330:09:36

that will drive you crazy on Now You See It!

0:09:360:09:39

We've got a human Transformer who needs to be seen to be believed, Lu Chen does magic with macarons, a Russian man's leaning trick goes wrong, we present what is possibly the biggest chicken egg in the world ever, and America's Criss Angel performs an illusion on a massive scale.
