A man without a pound.

Welcome to Now You See It.
First up, Tumba Ping Pong with a trick that'll put a smile on
anyone's face. Especially if the banana gets knocked in sideways.
Oh, don't eat the skin!
Secondly, we have this gentleman.
He does like to put a lot of fruit into his kid's lunchbox, doesn't he?
Finally, for some reason, this chap wants rid of his bananas.
I think he's just invented a banana-rang.
Ah, here's the Phantom of the Opera.
Oh, my mistake. It's Jonathan Pendragon.
I've got Simon Cowell on the phone.
He wants to know why you're wearing his trousers.
Oh, look, a cat in a box.
It's like a showbiz trip to the vet's.
Oh, oh, now it's a big white dog.
Or is it a tiny polar bear?
He didn't fight the cat, though. That's a bit magic too.
Oh, don't lie in there like that.
You don't know what the cat's done in there.
What's next? I'm thinking it's got to be a pony.
Oh, no, it's a woman!
And for an extra trick, the back half of her top's disappeared.
Here's something you don't see every day,
in an item we like to call You Don't See That Everyday.
While ordinary people would just pop bubble wrap,
illusionist Eric Buss just has to go one step further.
Being a magician can be stressful,
so here's the perfect invention to help them keep calm before a show.
Right, now, all you've got to do, Eric, is roll it back up again.
Now, that's real stress for you, Eric, isn't it?
Oh, look who it is! Drummond Money-Coutts, aka DMC.
Very, very simple. This is a very standard casino die
-and a hat.
OK. I'm going to set the die to a number.
I'm going to do this under the hat.
And I want you to name a random number between one and six.
-What is your first number?
-Wouldn't it be great if she said four and a half?
Impressive, although for all we know,
he gets it wrong 5/6 of the time.
So I'm going to set it to a different number which...
Set it to that. So again, take a moment.
Think through. Number between one and six.
Or Pi. 3.14...
No way. How are you doing that?
I think it's called magic, Rachelle.
How are you doing that?
-That's what I said.
This is the big one. OK, so, Rachelle.
Leave that there.
Any number, one to six.
-You want three?
The big one.
How did you? And why is the dice bigger?
No! It grew, under the hat.
To be fair, it's the only thing growing under his hat.
There's nothing in here. There's not even a small dice.
Where did the small one go?
And now they're ready for a
terrifying game of giant snakes and ladders.
Meanwhile, in a German TV shop,
a woman is asked to draw a picture on a blank card.
Nothing unusual about that.
HE SPEAKS GERMAN
And just two hours later, she's finished it.
It's not exactly Van Gogh, but it'll do.
HE SPEAKS GERMAN
Now, what's the world's weirdest TV
sales assistant going to do with that pile of cards?
Careful. You break it, you buy it, my friend.
The television was part of the trick!
Which reminds me. Chris in Doncaster,
the number you're thinking of is four.
Now, here's the very famous Derren Brown
actually talking to somebody on public transport.
No-one does that, surely.
Can I ask you what stop you're getting off at?
-Warren Street. Excellent.
What stop are you getting off at?
Yeah, the documentary is sort of
about how easily trains of thought can become confused.
-And you can...
-Darren's using his
magic powers to make commuters forget their stop.
Sorry, what was the stop you were getting off at?
Look at me. What was the stop you were getting off at?
Is that it, up there?
What was it?
What stop, thinking about it now, what was it?
I can't remember.
-It's just gone.
-What is it?
What was the stop?
He hasn't felt that confused on London underground since there were
planned engineering works at Cockfosters.
-Trevor, why are you going there?
-To visit friends.
To visit a friend. And where is it?
Don't know. Erm...
Just trying to find it at the moment.
I can't remember.
-Is that weird?
-There it is, what is it?
-You got it, what is it?
Warren Street. There you go.
Oh, this is Archway now. You better get.
Oh, that would be a tough excuse to use.
"Sorry I'm late. Darren Brown hypnotized me."
Sorry, you missed that one.
Danny Cole now with the purse that holds the budget for this very show.
This is a coin purse with an invisible bag.
And anything I drop inside of it will turn invisible also.
There's an object in there now. Of course, you can't see it.
And even if you look down in there, you shouldn't be able to see it.
It's not until I pour it out
that it becomes visible.
Now, when I
drop objects inside the purse, as long as I'm holding onto it,
you're going to be able to see it, OK?
But as soon as I let go...
Yeah, one of my friends has this problem.
Whenever we go out for lunch, her purse becomes invisible too.
Now brace yourselves, football fans, for a very sporting big finish.
I didn't want to do a trick of an actual football.
That'd be too obvious.
-Got a football sticker album from the shop.
Not all filled up yet, as if we just bought it.
OK, can you hold out your hand for me?
Put your hand on top, just like that.
Now come back to that in a second.
So I've not stuck the stickers in yet. I've got them right here.
You've seen that they are completely legit. Now, Ben, say stop.
Take the sticker. Have a look at it.
Oh, that'll be former Scotland and Kilmarnock player Barry Nicholson.
And can you just push it somewhere in the middle?
Yeah, Barry Nicholson always goes midfield.
Can you hold out both your hands for me?
Perfect. OK, now we need to start sticking these in.
If we do this one at a time, we're going to be here all day.
OK? So I'm going to take the book.
So, it is empty, yeah?
-Ben, what we're going to just try and do is just watch.
If I do it like this. And just start filling the sticker book up.
-Just like that.
Which means in your hands, the backs have gone completely blank.
Check them out.
-They're all gone.
-And that is
the sticker book completely filled up.
Oh, wait, I've missed one.
-That's Barry Nicholson.
-Oh, it's Barry Nicholson.
Just check that again to make sure...
Oh, wait. Was this the player you picked?
-Show it to the camera.
-You can put the sticker in your pocket.
-That's yours to keep.
-Alongside your 27 other Barry Nicholson spares.
Bring it up just like this. Bring it up in front of your face.
And concentrate on Barry Nicholson.
-Say the name Barry Nicholson out loud,
keep saying it until you hear me say the word stop.
-OK. Barry Nicholson.
-This reminds me of that horror film,
but with Barry Nicholson.
-Barry Nicholson. Barry Nicholson.
Oh, my word, it's the real Barry Nicholson.
The best football magic trick since Wayne Rooney's hair re-appeared.
Thanks, Damien. And thanks, Barry Nicholson.
Join us soon for more Now You See It.
I'm off for a kick about with Barry Nicholson.
Although, I think our goalie's stuck somewhere on the Northern line. Ha!
