Can't imagine how that was done.

What's even more magical and god-proving is that the door on the right had inexplicably opened between the start of the video and the end! HALLELUJAH!

They even appear to want to show you that by waving the camera around.

I was really, really hoping this was going to be a comedy act involving a pastor falling on his face after trying to step from the stairs with misguided faith. I'm big on magic shows.

I don't know how he does it, but it is all trickery - er, I think. :think:

I didn't notice that, but I heard it! Do you think the camera crew wasn't as all the way 'in' on it as they let the preacher believe?

The video camera aspect blows a lot of the perceived magic. Notice you don't see the mount or dismount, no lengthy shots without cuts, etc.

Actually, looking again, you can see a shadow of a person pulling away from him as he steps down.

But they left enough in so you can see how the fake arm is mounted on top of the bus.

I didn't see that, I saw they didn't let you see that. There was never a continuous shot from real to fake arm, it was clear on the dismount that he was on a lift of some kind. It's in the parts cut out where the only difficult 'magic' needed doing. That's why I think videoed magic like this is usually not very interesting.

Imagine the money Chris Angel could make if he moved to Zim.

Not in Zim dollars, of course.

I reckon if only I could eat a sufficient quantity of chilli beans, I could float on a cushion of warm air. :dopey:
But a pastie full of religious bullshit AND chilli beans? You have escape velocity folks. :thumbup:
