How does one of the greatest magicians out there manage to do all those tricks? Take a look.
1. Is Magic Something Beyond Our Imagination, or Is It All About Deceiving the Eyes of the Observer?
2. Criss Angel Knows the Answer Because He Is One of the Most Respected Magicians Today!
3. He Is Best Known for His "Beach Trick," When He Uses a Huge White Blanket to Make It Look as if Someone Was Underneath It and Then Runs Away, Reappearing Under the Same Blanket a Few Seconds After
4. How Does He Manage to Do It? Honestly, It's Not That Difficult at All!
5. It's All About the Camera Angle
The cameraman brings the camera closer to the ground so the viewers wouldn't be able to notice Criss' assistant sneaking up and crawling under the blanket.
6. What Viewers Also Don't See Is That Another Man Is Standing Behind Criss
He's dressed in the exact same clothing combination as him. When Criss picks up the blanket for the second time, there is enough time for them to switch places. And that's how the magic is born.
7. When You Look up "Criss Angel Levitation" You Will Realize Why This Man Is so Popular!
But, how can this hovering be real? Well, it's not! his whole body is attached to extra thin cables that you are not able to see because of the sun and camera tricks.
8. Remember That Trick When Criss Tied Metal Chains Around His Neck?
He had two men pull both sides of it to make it look as the chains went straight through his neck. Guess what, there are two chains! That's how he does it.
9. Nobody Noticed There Are Two of Them Because of His Hair! Incredible!
10. With His "Jesus" Illusion He Tricked Everyone Into Thinking He Can Walk on Water. What Is Actually Going on There? Well, First He Is Not Walking on Water but on a Special Plexiglass
11. He Usually Does This Trick in Public Places and Swimming Pools, and the Person Who Usually Swims Beneath Him (So He Could Prove That This Is Not Fake) Is Actually Swimming Beneath the Glass
12. His Specialty Is Making Stuff Disappear Before Your Eyes!
His famous spoon trick is what will make you question your own eyesight! But there is nothing special to this trick: he has a helper and that helper just pulls the spoon out!
13. And Remember That Trick When He Disappears While Standing on a Table? He Is Using Mirrors, That's Why You Cannot See Him! And Yes, Those People Who Look Surprised in the Video Are Paid to Be Surprised
14. He Is No Layman When It Comes to Card Tricks Either
His famous card trick is the one in which he asks a random person to cut the deck of cards in half and then asks them to somehow mark it. Another person is asked to take a look at the top card and somehow Criss always knows which card is the top one.
