In the next video, he first performs the trick and then reveals the exact methods he used.The people watching were most likely stooges, just playing along to make the illusion more convincing. So, presuming those people were stooges, we still have a lot of things to explain.All you need is you, a friend and a victim and it's as simple as that! Brian Brushwood of Revision3's Scam School shows you this bar trick and how to fool your friends into thinking you have magical super hero strength.Some have suggested he might have used some sort of a camera trick.Criss is most likely carried by a crane or something similar.Here we will reveal some of the techniques Criss uses to create the illusion of levitation. In the middle of the day, Criss levitates from one building to another in front of a couple of spectators.Notice he’s wearing nothing but black, thus making the harness impossible to notice.The cables are attached to a specially designed harness hidden somewhere on Criss.He is attached to it with very thin cables which are practically invisible due to the bright sky and the carefully chosen camera angles.Val Valentino, also known as the Masked magician, performed his own version of this illusion using a crane.While there are many ways in which this trick could be done, this seems to be the most logical explanation.Actually it’s probably the first explanation of levitation most people would think of: he was on a wire!
While we could be dead wrong about that, it certainly seems to be the case.He has performed it in various settings and circumstances and did it in many different ways.Explanation: So, how could Criss possibly be floating in mid air without the spectators noticing anything suspicious?Whether he is levitating other people, flying from one building to another or just casually lifting off the ground on the sidewalk, Criss never fails to leave his audience dumbfounded.Without giving it much thought, a painfully obvious explanation comes to mind: they weren’t real spectators.
