On today's show, cats that magically arise...
and incredible office supplies.
Wow! We've got great magic, amazing stunts,
and earth-shatteringly weird stuff.
Welcome to Now You See It.
Tinted sunglasses are magic.
They can turn the grimmest of settings into something
beautiful and exotic.
These glasses are even more impressive.
This guy's amazed.
Imagine how excited he'll be
when he hears about contact lenses.
Stop making a spectacle of yourself!
Normally, it's catch it, bin it, kill it.
But magicians tend to go with a more showbiz catch it, bounce it,
make an elaborate origami swan from it.
Back to this guy, who can do so much more than magic up sunglasses.
He can do tricks with tissue paper, too.
Though the end results seems to be sunglasses again.
You could call these optical illusions.
Now, who should a wife turn to when her hubby's hobby's driving her mad?
Marriage guidance counsellor, a close friend or relative?
No, magician Andrew Mayne, of course!
Here to stop one husband from spending all his time fishing.
-Not yet, no.
I could fix that for you...
..by bringing the fish to you.
-How did you do that?
-I don't think that's enough.
He's turned the petrol tank into a fish tank.
-I'm bringing the ocean to you
so you don't have to go fishing any more.
Now I'm getting scared of what's going on!
Here's the point, Jurgen.
Your wife feels like she's drowning.
Seriously, what is going on to my car right now?
This chap doesn't know whether to call the AA or the coastguard.
You have enough fish for a lifetime!
-This is what she wanted!
No, this is not what I wanted.
Let me air it out for you!
-And it was at this point that the fishing fan told Andrew that
that was actually a hire car.
Over to France where the kids attend school on a Saturday.
Presumably, that's where they learn advanced creepy telekinesis skills.
Very continental and thankfully not on the curriculum over here.
Ah, the joyous sound of nervous laughter from petrified adults.
HE SPEAKS IN FRENCH
Everyone's impressed, except the waiter,
whose tip she's messing with.
Oh, there he is.
Oh, hang on!
Stop looking at me like that!
Kids plus magic equals trouble.
But what about animals?
Let's take a look in today's Animal Magic.
And he knows how to sit, roll over...
We're at home with Criss Angel and his kin.
Criss has come up with a novel way of removing unwanted animal hair
from the furniture.
Look at the cat!
The cat's thinking, "9 lives and I had to spend one of them with him?"
Rick Lax is determined to prove cats love magic almost as much as
they love dogs, baths and loud noises.
Not interested in magic, but love a ball of wool.
Strange creatures, cats.
Yeah, pull a rabbit out of that hat,
then I'll be interested.
So, what's the verdict?
They hate it.
Well, cats may be sceptical about magic,
but what about man's best friend?
Here's a budding magician with his assistant, Doggy McGee.
Actually, the name's Fudge and he's pretty nonplussed.
"That collar's far too big for me!"
Fudge vanishes! Did somebody rattle the biscuit box in the kitchen?
And Fudge is back!
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
Well, the owner seems to think he's in charge,
but who's really pulling the strings?
Fudge is now the master!
Now, you'll love this.
Watch and learn.
This paperclip is made from a top-secret metal alloy
with very special powers.
When you bend it into a totally different shape,
like this representation of Brands Hatch Race Circuit,
and drop it into hot water, voila!
It's a paper-clip again!
Top-secret bendy metal alloys!
You really do learn something new everyday.
There are lots of things you can do with paperclips.
But when it comes to stationery products,
nothing can compete with the versatility of the rubber band.
Sounds like a BBC Four series.
Have you ever noticed even the smallest of tricks can seem
a lot bigger with suitably dramatic music?
Actually, that's pretty good.
Let's see if I can copy it.
You cross the bands on this finger...
Right, OK. Yep.
Finger under there.
Oh, hang on. Where's my thumb?
Oh, it's tight. I'm losing circulation! Yep.
All I wanted was my own stab of dramatic music!
Rubber band ball to just rubber bands.
Like a rubber band ball, takes four days before he can do it again.
Philip Blue here became so obsessed with rubber band tricks,
his wife made him leave the house and do them in the car.
Yeah, that was worth it.
As it goes, rubber bands are pretty simple.
For more advanced office magic,
come and join us walking in a printer wonderland.
HE SPEAKS IN HIS LANGUAGE
Is this the opposite of 3-D printing?
When you don't have a printer...
Oh, you don't need one!
Interesting place for a button.
You don't want to know where the batteries are.
Now, here's Richard Osmond getting his head down after recording
another 400 episodes of Pointless.
I've heard of beauty sleep, but this is ridiculous!
I don't normally say no to a doughnut, but on this occasion...
Now, it's time for our big finish.
Ladies and gentlemen, Ed Sheeran!
Actually, it's an amazing escapology stunt
from the Safronov Brothers in Russia.
I'm going to say it. Even if you have a van, ropes and volunteers,
DON'T do this one at home.
They're tied to that post and must escape
before the red van drops on them.
Simple set up, although utterly insane.
THEY COUNTDOWN IN RUSSIAN
Come on, Ed-a-like!
Oh, dear. Well, I'm really glad this is a trick,
or now I'd be very worried.
After all, the suspension on that van is totally done in.
THEY SPEAK IN RUSSIAN
Wait, it's Ed!
He's done it!
To celebrate, he's going to sing us something!
Yeah, it's no Galway Girl.
That's all for now.
But we'll be back in a flash for more spellbinding magic
and extraordinary feats on Now You See It!
Big tricks involving cars full of fish and trucks that drop from the sky have to be seen to be believed. There is also a chance to see how cats react when they are shown some astounding magic. Clue - cats love magic as much as they love dogs and loud noises. Also with an introduction to the magical world of office supplies. No, really.
