Many people claim Halloween as their favorite time of the year. Around the end of October pranks and scares become as common as fools in April. The best pranks are the ones with just enough complexity to keep the watches guessing.
Here a magician, prankster and mentalist Rich Ferguson tests out his head drop prank on the unsuspecting residents of San Luis Obispo, California. The results range from laughter to fear, and even watching the trick is top notch. Can you guess how he does it? via YouTube
Not to hard to figure out, if you look closely.
But he’s pretty good, I gotta admit.
I like the trick. It’s always been one of my favorites. But it’s been around forever. Can’t believe Discovery is putting it up like it’s something brand new.
If viewed from the side it would be clear how it is done.
great illusion! Loved how he scared hell out of the kids ;-)
Very cool. Must have taken a huge amount of practice to fool the onlooker's eyes effectively.
Smashing, simply smashing!
the "where" is SLO, as the article mentioned, but more specifically Gumball Alley for most of the shots, with the rest Downtown SLO, probably Higuera Street.
Funny stuff. He “pulls” it off well.
