    Seriously. I've watched this at least 5 times already and I can't figure this shit out. I'd like to think I usually have a decent enough eye for this stuff, but this one has me stumped. Not a single camera cut either. Any ideas?

    I have no idea. That's a pretty good one.

    I like how the cell phone view conveniently disappeared with 9 seconds left.

    Well he did tell the lady that he'd take care of her phone, so because of that I can only assume he turned it off and pocketed it before he cast his teleportation spell.

    He obviously ducked into the ridiculously over-sized red tool cart that was rolled out to accompany a guy that needed a cordless drill and some screws. It was rolled to the back of the box as he was put into it and lid closed. You can see how heavy it is as the dude rolled it away...

    It's another dude. He's still laying inside the false pallet dangling overhead.

    The box tips forward and he slips out the back remaining on the platform. The people watch as the box falls not paying attention to him lying just out of view on the platform. Before they have a chance to inspect the platform more closely, a look-a-like body double from very very very far away calls to them on a bullhorn giving the illusion that the magician somehow teleported.

    Dude knew a bit too quickly how to start the cam on a phone he just got. Probably prerecorded vid on it.

    Seriously though, he flat out lied. He said it would be no illusion, but an escape. Truth is it was an illusion because he actually died in the crashing crate.

    Also disappointed in those holes. Hands coming through them?!? That's not glorious. That's not glorious at all.

    ok makes sense. @ 1st i wasnt sure if the pallet was big enough to fit another person. after subsequent viewing, i think this is the best explanation

    my initial thoughts were that the hands were fake but then if the box got smashed the hands would still be there

    Are there anymore links you need us to click, TS?

    Incidentally, this trick is how Prince gets onstage during arena concerts. He hides inside a crate and they wheel him beneath it and like JEHOVA HE APPEARETH.
