Prepare to witness magic underground.

0:00:020:00:03

A man without a pound.

0:00:030:00:05

And football fans left spellbound.

0:00:050:00:08

Welcome to Now You See It.

0:00:080:00:10

It's magic!

0:00:100:00:12

First up, Tumba Ping Pong with a trick that'll put a smile on

0:00:250:00:28

anyone's face. Especially if the banana gets knocked in sideways.

0:00:280:00:31

Oh, don't eat the skin!

0:00:360:00:38

Secondly, we have this gentleman.

0:00:420:00:43

He does like to put a lot of fruit into his kid's lunchbox, doesn't he?

0:00:480:00:53

Finally, for some reason, this chap wants rid of his bananas.

0:00:530:00:56

I think he's just invented a banana-rang.

0:00:570:01:00

Ah, here's the Phantom of the Opera.

0:01:020:01:04

Oh, my mistake. It's Jonathan Pendragon.

0:01:040:01:06

PHONE RINGS

0:01:060:01:09

I've got Simon Cowell on the phone.

0:01:090:01:10

He wants to know why you're wearing his trousers.

0:01:100:01:13

Oh, look, a cat in a box.

0:01:130:01:15

It's like a showbiz trip to the vet's.

0:01:150:01:17

Oh, oh, now it's a big white dog.

0:01:230:01:25

Or is it a tiny polar bear?

0:01:250:01:27

He didn't fight the cat, though. That's a bit magic too.

0:01:270:01:30

Oh, don't lie in there like that.

0:01:370:01:39

You don't know what the cat's done in there.

0:01:390:01:42

What's next? I'm thinking it's got to be a pony.

0:01:420:01:44

Oh, no, it's a woman!

0:01:440:01:46

And for an extra trick, the back half of her top's disappeared.

0:01:460:01:50

Here's something you don't see every day,

0:01:540:01:56

in an item we like to call You Don't See That Everyday.

0:01:560:02:00

While ordinary people would just pop bubble wrap,

0:02:000:02:03

illusionist Eric Buss just has to go one step further.

0:02:030:02:06

Being a magician can be stressful,

0:02:060:02:09

so here's the perfect invention to help them keep calm before a show.

0:02:090:02:12

Right, now, all you've got to do, Eric, is roll it back up again.

0:02:140:02:18

Now, that's real stress for you, Eric, isn't it?

0:02:180:02:20

Yeah!

0:02:210:02:23

Oh, look who it is! Drummond Money-Coutts, aka DMC.

0:02:230:02:26

Very, very simple. This is a very standard casino die

0:02:260:02:29

-and a hat.

-Cool.

0:02:290:02:31

OK. I'm going to set the die to a number.

0:02:310:02:33

I'm going to do this under the hat.

0:02:330:02:35

And I want you to name a random number between one and six.

0:02:350:02:40

-What is your first number?

-Five.

0:02:400:02:41

-Five?

-Wouldn't it be great if she said four and a half?

0:02:410:02:44

Impressive, although for all we know,

0:02:470:02:49

he gets it wrong 5/6 of the time.

0:02:490:02:51

So I'm going to set it to a different number which...

0:02:510:02:54

Set it to that. So again, take a moment.

0:02:540:02:58

Think through. Number between one and six.

0:02:580:03:00

Or Pi. 3.14...

0:03:000:03:02

Four.

0:03:020:03:04

Four?

0:03:040:03:05

No way. How are you doing that?

0:03:080:03:11

I think it's called magic, Rachelle.

0:03:110:03:13

How are you doing that?

0:03:130:03:16

-It's magic.

-That's what I said.

0:03:160:03:18

This is the big one. OK, so, Rachelle.

0:03:180:03:22

Final number.

0:03:230:03:25

Leave that there.

0:03:250:03:27

Any number, one to six.

0:03:270:03:29

-Three.

-You want three?

0:03:300:03:32

The big one.

0:03:360:03:38

How did you? And why is the dice bigger?

0:03:440:03:46

No! It grew, under the hat.

0:03:460:03:48

To be fair, it's the only thing growing under his hat.

0:03:480:03:51

There's nothing in here. There's not even a small dice.

0:03:510:03:53

Where did the small one go?

0:03:530:03:55

And now they're ready for a

0:03:550:03:56

terrifying game of giant snakes and ladders.

0:03:560:03:59

Hello.

0:03:590:04:01

Meanwhile, in a German TV shop,

0:04:010:04:03

a woman is asked to draw a picture on a blank card.

0:04:030:04:06

Nothing unusual about that.

0:04:060:04:07

HE SPEAKS GERMAN

0:04:070:04:10

And just two hours later, she's finished it.

0:04:170:04:19

It's not exactly Van Gogh, but it'll do.

0:04:210:04:23

HE SPEAKS GERMAN

0:04:230:04:26

Now, what's the world's weirdest TV

0:04:290:04:31

sales assistant going to do with that pile of cards?

0:04:310:04:34

Careful. You break it, you buy it, my friend.

0:04:400:04:43

Incredible.

0:04:490:04:51

The television was part of the trick!

0:04:510:04:53

Which reminds me. Chris in Doncaster,

0:04:530:04:55

the number you're thinking of is four.

0:04:550:04:57

Now, here's the very famous Derren Brown

0:04:570:05:00

actually talking to somebody on public transport.

0:05:000:05:02

No-one does that, surely.

0:05:020:05:04

Can I ask you what stop you're getting off at?

0:05:040:05:06

-Warren Street.

-Warren Street. Excellent.

0:05:060:05:09

What stop are you getting off at?

0:05:090:05:11

-Houston.

-Houston, excellent.

0:05:110:05:13

Yeah, the documentary is sort of

0:05:130:05:14

about how easily trains of thought can become confused.

0:05:140:05:17

-And you can...

-Darren's using his

0:05:170:05:19

magic powers to make commuters forget their stop.

0:05:190:05:22

Sorry, what was the stop you were getting off at?

0:05:240:05:26

Look at me. What was the stop you were getting off at?

0:05:280:05:30

Is that it, up there?

0:05:330:05:35

What was it?

0:05:370:05:39

What stop, thinking about it now, what was it?

0:05:390:05:42

I can't remember.

0:05:440:05:46

-It's just gone.

-What is it?

0:05:460:05:47

What was the stop?

0:05:480:05:50

He hasn't felt that confused on London underground since there were

0:05:510:05:55

planned engineering works at Cockfosters.

0:05:550:05:58

-Trevor, why are you going there?

-To visit friends.

0:05:580:06:01

To visit a friend. And where is it?

0:06:010:06:03

What stop?

0:06:030:06:04

Don't know. Erm...

0:06:060:06:08

Just trying to find it at the moment.

0:06:090:06:13

I can't remember.

0:06:130:06:15

-Is that weird?

-Yeah.

0:06:150:06:17

-There it is, what is it?

-Houston.

0:06:170:06:19

-You got it, what is it?

-Warren Street.

0:06:190:06:21

Warren Street. There you go.

0:06:210:06:23

-Archway.

-Archway?

0:06:230:06:25

Oh, this is Archway now. You better get.

0:06:250:06:27

Oh, that would be a tough excuse to use.

0:06:270:06:29

"Sorry I'm late. Darren Brown hypnotized me."

0:06:290:06:32

Sorry, you missed that one.

0:06:320:06:34

Danny Cole now with the purse that holds the budget for this very show.

0:06:350:06:38

This is a coin purse with an invisible bag.

0:06:390:06:43

And anything I drop inside of it will turn invisible also.

0:06:430:06:47

There's an object in there now. Of course, you can't see it.

0:06:470:06:51

And even if you look down in there, you shouldn't be able to see it.

0:06:510:06:55

It's not until I pour it out

0:06:550:06:58

that it becomes visible.

0:06:580:07:00

Now, when I

0:07:000:07:02

drop objects inside the purse, as long as I'm holding onto it,

0:07:020:07:06

you're going to be able to see it, OK?

0:07:060:07:08

But as soon as I let go...

0:07:080:07:10

Yeah, one of my friends has this problem.

0:07:100:07:12

Whenever we go out for lunch, her purse becomes invisible too.

0:07:120:07:16

Now brace yourselves, football fans, for a very sporting big finish.

0:07:160:07:20

I didn't want to do a trick of an actual football.

0:07:210:07:23

That'd be too obvious.

0:07:230:07:24

-Rude.

-Got a football sticker album from the shop.

0:07:240:07:27

Not all filled up yet, as if we just bought it.

0:07:270:07:29

OK, can you hold out your hand for me?

0:07:290:07:31

Put your hand on top, just like that.

0:07:310:07:33

Now come back to that in a second.

0:07:330:07:35

So I've not stuck the stickers in yet. I've got them right here.

0:07:350:07:38

You've seen that they are completely legit. Now, Ben, say stop.

0:07:380:07:41

-Stop.

-There. Cool.

0:07:410:07:43

Take the sticker. Have a look at it.

0:07:430:07:45

Oh, that'll be former Scotland and Kilmarnock player Barry Nicholson.

0:07:450:07:49

And can you just push it somewhere in the middle?

0:07:490:07:51

Yeah, Barry Nicholson always goes midfield.

0:07:510:07:54

Can you hold out both your hands for me?

0:07:540:07:56

Perfect. OK, now we need to start sticking these in.

0:07:560:08:00

If we do this one at a time, we're going to be here all day.

0:08:000:08:03

OK? So I'm going to take the book.

0:08:030:08:05

So, it is empty, yeah?

0:08:050:08:07

-Empty.

-Ben, what we're going to just try and do is just watch.

0:08:070:08:10

If I do it like this. And just start filling the sticker book up.

0:08:100:08:13

-OK.

-Just like that.

0:08:130:08:15

Hey, wow.

0:08:150:08:17

Which means in your hands, the backs have gone completely blank.

0:08:170:08:21

Check them out.

0:08:210:08:22

Agreed.

0:08:250:08:27

-They're all gone.

-And that is

0:08:270:08:29

the sticker book completely filled up.

0:08:290:08:32

Oh, wait, I've missed one.

0:08:320:08:34

-That's Barry Nicholson.

-Oh, it's Barry Nicholson.

0:08:350:08:39

Just check that again to make sure...

0:08:390:08:41

Oh, wait. Was this the player you picked?

0:08:410:08:43

-Definitely was.

-Show it to the camera.

0:08:430:08:46

-Barry Nicholson.

-You can put the sticker in your pocket.

0:08:460:08:48

-That's yours to keep.

-Alongside your 27 other Barry Nicholson spares.

0:08:480:08:52

Bring it up just like this. Bring it up in front of your face.

0:08:520:08:54

And concentrate on Barry Nicholson.

0:08:540:08:56

-OK.

-Say the name Barry Nicholson out loud,

0:08:560:08:59

keep saying it until you hear me say the word stop.

0:08:590:09:01

-OK?

-OK. Barry Nicholson.

0:09:010:09:04

-Barry Nicholson.

-This reminds me of that horror film,

0:09:040:09:07

but with Barry Nicholson.

0:09:070:09:08

-Barry Nicholson. Barry Nicholson.

-Stop.

0:09:080:09:11

Oh, my word, it's the real Barry Nicholson.

0:09:110:09:15

The best football magic trick since Wayne Rooney's hair re-appeared.

0:09:150:09:19

Thanks, Damien. And thanks, Barry Nicholson.

0:09:190:09:21

Join us soon for more Now You See It.

0:09:230:09:25

I'm off for a kick about with Barry Nicholson.

0:09:250:09:27

Although, I think our goalie's stuck somewhere on the Northern line. Ha!

0:09:270:09:31

Derren Brown causes confusion on the London Underground, DMC plays a guessing game with a very surprised young lady and we bring you a fabulous big finish with an international footballer. All that, plus animal magic with Jonathan Pendragon, some banana-based bizarreness, and a TV trick from Germany's Farid that will have you checking your warranty!
