SPOILER ALERT: In the fifth and final episode of The Magicians we collaborated with actress, television presenter and all round lovely person, Angela Griffin.
In our effort to bring you the most sophisticated, cutting edge, technological trickery possible we created a quasi-historical illusion, “The Red Carpet Illusion.” Using Infra-Red camera technology we used thermal imaging to reveal to you the secret behind this illusion, literally giving you x-ray vision so you could see how the trick worked.
Fortunately for you, dear viewers, if you look especially closely at the thermal feed you might be able to make out our testicles. Surely making us the only presenters not only to expose their trick but also, their balls on prime-time TV.
Anyone who attended our 08/09 show Powered by Demons will have recognised this re-worked version of our Spirit Cabinet sequence, a favourite of ours purely because we love ghosts with wandering hand syndrome, it’s much more interesting when they throw things.
In this episode we also developed a trick utilising YouTube, which you can see on this very blog here.
