Oh Wow: The World Championships of Magic Winning Routine

November 15, 2018

This is a video of magician Eric Chien performing his 'Ribbons' magic routine, which recently won the International Federation of Magic Societies' World Championships of Magic competition that's only held every three years because magic takes time. It's chock-full of up-close sleight of hand color changing card tricks and coins and sorcery. It starts good and only gets better from there. Now I'm not saying magic is real, but I have seen Now You See Me AND Now You See Me 2 and I do love Woody Harrelson's character, especially in Cheers and True Detective.

Keep going for the whole routine.

Thanks to Rob, who agrees the best magic routine of all time has been and always will be the disconnected thumb trick.

    Saw some under deck dealing, 2 slit holes at the front of the table for white frames and the black vest get ripped away.

    Such a classy affair. The female statue presenter was in jean shorts. Welcome to the show, buddy.

    Pfft. All those people acting like they've never seen a wizard before.

    I feel like he should go all in and dress as a cave man, to go along with his shtick of acting completely surprised and amazed at the existence of everyday objects.

    For my next trick.... watch as I make this entire bag of weed disappear into a cloud of smoke

  • GeneralDisorder
