Hilarious Magician Hires Crowd on Craigslist, Convinces Man He's Been Turned Invisible

Share

When Netflix first began, it almost seemed too good to be true. I can get DVDs delivered to my mailbox? I don’t have to go to Blockbuster? Sign me up!

Now, years later, even DVD deliveries are a thing of the past. Everyone is streaming these days whether it be on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu.

Streaming subscriptions have the corner on the television market, it seems, and these companies have even taken it a step further by producing their own original shows and movies.

Justin Willman’s “Magic for Humans” is a Netflix Original, now streaming straight to your devices. The show takes sleight of hand and illusionism to a whole new level.

The series features Willman taking his act to the streets, blending both humor and illusion to create some seriously hilarious outcomes.

One trick shows Willman approaching a man with a fear of spiders. Watch the man’s reaction at the beginning of this trailer as the image on his phone suddenly comes to life.

Another viral clip from the show featuring a trick dubbed the “Invisible Man Experiment” is inviting a lot of attention.

Do you think you would have fallen for this trick?

“What would I have to show someone to make them believe the impossible?” Willman asks in the clip. Well, you’d have to hire an audience from Craigslist for starters.

According to Willman, that’s exactly what he did.

“I had to convince them that invisibility was real,” he tells the camera.

Two innocent men had no idea what was coming for them. I wouldn’t have believed these seemingly normal guys could be fooled in this way had I not witnessed it with my own two eyes.

Watch what happens when Willman throws a blanket over his victims — I mean, volunteers. Their reactions might just make you roll on the floor laughing.

It’s too much! No, this isn’t filmed live and yes, it’s hard to believe these men aren’t acting. But Willman shared that the reactions are no illusion.

“I’m proud to say that all the illusions in the show were accomplished without any camera tricks,” he told Bustle. “And all of the reactions are 100 percent real.”

Whether the reactions are real or staged, they’re still side-splitting. I’m excited to see what else this man comes up with. If nothing else, he’s extremely clever and a great showman!
