Cyril Takayama's cool cigarette trick

I am always impressed with Cyril's tricks. Here's one cool trick he performed up close with cigarettes.

The clip below shows Cyril in action. He shows how a broken cigarette can be pieced back together and even have the marks erased under a lid match stick. And then he shows how an empty cigarette pack turns into a full unopen pack.

Sorry no revelations here. If you know how it was done, please share it via comments below. Thanx and enjoy!

Card through window magic trick revealed

I bet you must have seen the 'card through window' trick before. Believed to have started from John Kennedy, most of the well-known magicians like Chris Angel, David Blaine and Cyril Takayama have performed it.

The trick itself has become complicated and varied. To make the trick more real, magicians have used different ways such as asking the spectator to sign on the card, performing in front of the window and even putting the hand across the window to retrieve the card and etc.

Here's 4 video clips on this trick. Clip 1 shows David Blaine in action. Clip 2 and 3 provides explanation of how its done. And Clip 4 shows what will happen when the trick goes wrong :)

T.H.E.M - Totally Hidden Extreme Magic (Eps. 1)

"What if magic was real? Would you believe your eyes?" - This was the opening statement of a short-lived TV series called T.H.E.M or Totally Hidden Extreme Magic, consisting of a gang of street magicians: Rico, Chris, Justin, Cyril, Lisa, Michael, Jason, Dan, Thomas.

As I have blogged about Cyril Takayama here, here and here before, he actually used to be a member of T.H.E.M. Its actually an interesting program that shows magic as 'real' to those unaware before revealing the truth rather than showing magic in the usual way that magicians do.

There are no tricks revealed here but the natural reactions of those caught unaware are fun to watch. Enjoy!
