  1. It's a magic
    But it's actually a psychological phenomenon where he is letting everyone do what he wants in the pile of cards
    And that all happens when all are putting the torn cards in the middle of other two cards

  2. The card force used for the second trick is probably one of the easiest yet effective out there. Watch closesly how it works…tip: The wierd angle is key to the move.

  3. I went to a pen and teller show at the Apollo Hammersmith last year and they did a similar trick with the crowd…. It worked with everyone legit don't get how it works 😂😂😂

  4. I actually improvised papers hahahhaah. I effortly draw 4 symbols and numbers on the paper and it actually worked. Im all shookt

  5. see when he was taking out the cards after eight he took out the card from beneath if he was taking the cards out from the top, it was already torn because if u look at it ,it doesn't show the full card

  6. Youtube and its playback option has really challenged magicians. Every trick that we see now would be confusing as hell if we only get to see it once, and that too in a normal speed. This guy's just forcing the cards, however, I don't know how he did the video trick. (There might be something in his wallet that emits infra-red rays or any sorta rays which is only visible to camera phones–just my opinion)

  7. I did follow the tricks and rip my incomplete useless deck of cards and I got the same results oh my goodness I'll definitely will try this at my family

  8. Anyone else saying …seriously??
    That is common sense…
    The last card and the 4th card are the same…then u somehow remove the top 3 cards so u have the 4th card on the top and its other half on the bottom. You put that card aside and just keep on shuffling the cards except for the last one…then u slowly bring the bottom card up till its the last card left.
    Finally both match.

  9. Everyone is ripping cards and others not ripping cards. While here I am with no cards to rip or not !!!

  10. I didn't even notice priyanka until closer to the 3min mark!

    Btw, I lost focus during the final trick…

  11. I used the jokers, the instructions for poker card and a cover card…Pretty impressed I was able to used those additional cards in some way.

  12. First trick: the card was already torn. He asked one of the interns to sneak the piece in Corden's jacket.
    Second trick: It's a trick wallet. Because we can't see the whole deck of cards, we don't know if they are really random cards.
    Third trick: mathematics

  13. Ppl can’t be this dumb. I refuse to believe not a single person doesn’t realize that all that shuffling and cutting she did was absolutely pointless. The first card she put down never moved and will always be the card that comes up when you cut the deck at a “weird angle”.

  14. the video he recorded wasn't the same as shown, in the recorded video he asked james to look at the wallet and the video they showed it ended right where it showed the card.

  15. Super easy trick. He preselected the Q. He tore its corner and slipped the piece into James’ pocket when he greeted him. What ever number was chosen he drew the Q from the bottom of the deck. Then when he put the card by her ear so she could hear the tearing, he switched out to the Q that was already torn. That’s why we never see the piece being torn off before it disappears, because that was the pre-torn Q. Now all he needs to do is have James bring out the torn piece. Hardly even a manic trick!

  16. The card video trick is pure tech. He needs to get a special program that identifies a rectangle installed on James’ phone through blue tooth. That’s the reason for the woman dealing cards down so slowly. To give him time for the app to download. Once that is done, just create the video and apply the filter that inserts a card with probably a code like 3H for 3 of hearts. Then the app inserts the 3 of hearts in the rectangle. Very easy trick.

  17. The last trick was easy, the 4th card and bottom card are the same.

    You move the top three card. Now the top and bottom card are the same.

    You put away the top card. You shuffle the other cards however you want but never in the bottom. So the bottom card and the one you put away will always be the same.

  18. Me: Gets my deck of card and is really excited to do the magic trick
    Justin: So you rip the cards
    Me: Ok imma just put this away and i'll just watch you do it….

  19. The phone trick is so obvious. Its a specially made wallet and the illusion of a card appears only when taken taken on a phone camera. Then he forces the card that will appear. No magic at all.
