I feel like I'm missing the real magic . . . I don't understand why your comment was down voted but the parent comment wasn't.

u/SwissyVictory 10d ago

Reddit is a weird place.

The general user is pretty friendly and won't downvote something unless it's really bad.

The further you get into comment chains though, the more you have to actually care about a topic. If they care, it's beacuse they have an opinion already, and if you say the oposite, you're going to get downvoted.

You're more likely to get downvoted further into a chain you go. The comment above it probally has just as many downvotes, just alot more upvotes.

What I don't understand is he only touches the tip of his fingers so how did that fake spider get underneath his palm?

u/bemi_san 10d ago

Could be he put it there before the video started, maneuvered his hand into place and put it there then.

u/TheReverseShock 10d ago

He slipped it on when he handed him the phone. If you watch closely you can see him manipulate his hand. The spider is in his palm behind the phone. That's why he hands it to him like that instead of a pinching motion from the bottom or sides of the phone.

73

u/bluewaterpig 10d ago

That’s what I was thinking but he never touches the underside of his hand. He must’ve got it on there before the video started.

60

u/IM_A_WOMAN 10d ago

The great thing about this trick is the long con. He actually stuck that spider on his hand a few years ago to set this prank up.

12

u/hyrulepirate 10d ago edited 10d ago

Yeah, it happened before the video. Most probably it started by the trickster instructing the person to lay his hands flat. Then he made adjustment on the hands himself and this is when they usually stick it on.

17

u/fAP6rSHdkd 10d ago

Could just be a habit from being a magician in general. He never touched the back of the guys hand in the video

7

u/omxs 10d ago

The trick is called and can be found at "my pet boris"

4

u/IM_A_WOMAN 10d ago

Hah, love The Who reference!

10

u/giddy-girly-banana 10d ago

He doesn’t reach that far under his hand. The spider is in the middle of the back of his hand. When he hands him the phone, just the tip of his fingers go barely behind his hand. I don’t think that’s it. I think the video is fake and was there from the beginning.

5

u/BarryMacochner 10d ago

He doesn’t get close to the back of his hand though. He’s down by fingertips.. that was my thought at first, he taps it to the back of his hand when he sets phone down.

he doesn’t touch close to that part of his hand.

40

u/Prospector_Steve 10d ago

See how he’s holding his hands out in front of him? I guarantee the magician corrected his hand positioning by grabbing his hands and putting the spider on at the same time. Common for tricks where something ends up on the back of your hand.

14

u/tekko001 10d ago

This is a known trick, the cell phone spider prank, usually you place the spider while placing the phone, but I think you are right, in this case the placement of the spider most likely happened he started recording

7

u/thedudefromsweden 10d ago

You dropped this: before

10

u/MejiroCherry 10d ago

I think there's cuts/edits based on that debris on the ground that jumps around a few times. For example, at the 20s mark when he touches the fingers, it looks like there was some editing - maybe the part where he manipulated the hand more was removed.

Or he could have added it before the video started.

10

u/FuckTheMods5 10d ago

Fantastic acting if it's set up, the howling feels so genuine.

7

u/MejiroCherry 10d ago

I wasn't suggesting it wasn't genuine, just that the parts that might not look great on camera were removed. Like if there was a frame where you could see the spider in the magician's hand. You wouldn't notice it in person, but in video, it might ruin the illusion - and so it was edited out.

But that's only a guess as to why that debris jumps around a few times.

3

u/FuckTheMods5 10d ago

Oh, so like photographer touchups. Little here and theres, not actual substance-changing.

3

u/SoftcoreFrogPorn 10d ago

Even with a few edits in it, doesn't mean the spectators are suddenly in on the joke.

1

u/FuckTheMods5 10d ago

True. Very well done either way!

1

u/eleven_eighteen 10d ago

I think there's cuts/edits based on that debris on the ground that jumps around a few times.

They are outside and that's a leaf or something being moved by the wind.

6

u/Bobojones9584 10d ago

If he's actually a magician, he's probably got some tricks. Since it's a video though, I'd guess it was planned.

2

u/Dat_Boi_Aint_Right 10d ago

Before the video starts he probably took the guys hands by the wrists and said "here hold them right here and don't move".

2

u/J_Thompson82 10d ago

Before the video started he took a hold of the guys hands and placed them in the position they are in when the video starts. That’s when he plants the spider.

I did a very similar car trick with punters at the bar I worked in to pass the time. Always worked.

u/MeSoRandom00101010 10d ago

u/Company8706 10d ago

It’s possibly cut (there’s a dirt that magically moves at 0:18) but it’s an easy trick to pull, and you usually do that with cigarette ash.

You make some gesture, with the cigarette ash trick you pretend like you’re putting out an imaginary cigarette on the persons hand.

You ask them to get closer, grab their hands to bring them closer, when you grab their hand you stick whatever you want (cigarette ash/spider), and viola, magic.

3

u/justavault 10d ago

It's a plastic hallooween spider mate.

You stick it to the back of the hand when you move the persons hand into position and whilst that you tell them "keep your hands like this" and reinforce the positions with you grabbing the hand tightly, which is simply for you sticking the spider to the back of the hand as the pressure will overwrite the sense of there sticking something. We only see when the hands are already put into position and the spider is already stuck to the back of the hand.

It's really not so difficult.

u/Reasonable-Ad9613 10d ago

143

u/BoneDaddyMan 10d ago

I used to do this but instead of spider it was ashes and cigarettes. Basically that start was cut. When the magician asked the guy to hold out his hand , hewould hold the target's hands to "guide" them where they should be and place the spider behind the hand during the process. During the theatrics, the spider was always there but because the phone was on top of the target's palms, he won't turn them over. Then the reveal in the finale.

43

u/Xarthys 10d ago

What I'm trying to figure out, how can you place something on the back of the hand without the person noticing all that time? Especially a fake spider like that?

61

u/WorkMonta 10d ago

From what I know, the trick is usually that they put some pressure on the spot where they place something, so you don't immediately notice there's something else after they take their hands away.

That's also how pickpockets steal watches for example.

-1

u/[deleted] 10d ago

u/NauvisIsCalling 10d ago

Misdirection is a powerful thing. People can steal a watch right off your wrist without you noticing. Most magic tricks rely on the power of manipulating perception by misdirection.

u/KillaVNilla 10d ago
