I found THIS funny clip online of some "impromptu street magic" in Japan.

Thought I would pass it along.

Thank you Dan for sharing this wonderful movie with us all!

I had a large laugh, in fact, more than one.

I don't know. Dean Dill showed it at his shoppe. It was likely the same method as the hamburger stunt but on a horizontal glass coffee table. Think Blaine's jewelery store window.

Here is yet another online video of Cyril in Japan using his shadows to manipulate objects. This guy does some very good magic.

Se the *removing the head* illusion, that Cyril ALSO did perform, here performed -IF I am not mistaken - preceeding Cyrils performance, by a japanese girl at a contest :

Unfortunately I lost the original URL where I downloaded it from, so I uploaded it to the above, my appologise to the site I did *borrow* it from....

the falling head illusion in your link is not performed by Cyril but buy a little Jap girl in a school contest!
I believe the originator of this illusion is Peter Marvey.

Sorry my wording could got misunderstood.

I didn't write Cyril did perform it on that clip I forwarded, but it could be read that way.

I've altered my wordings so it should now be more clear.

What I ment was that on that clip that girl did perform that illsuion, that ALSO was performed by Cyril! :)and that she did perform it originally before Cyril did so.

*American language, difficult language, me not american, can't speak or read american, just pidgeon english*, :) looks to me it could easily got misunderstood what one means, if one doesn't cut everything out plain and clear in paperdolls :)

I understood as well. I also think it's not very nice of Mop to say "little Jap girl."

True but he is in Malta so it may not be intentional but an attempt to abreviate.
