I don't know about the trick, but the chicks at hot.

Translation: The hot chicks are the distraction, got it, sty?

BTW DingTaiFung is really good stuff.

Just wait. Start counting the days until he will show up on David Letterman.

He is like those guys who became famous doing street magic. David Blaine was the last one, although after he ran out of ideas he started doing some idiotic stuff, like standing on a 50' poll for 24 hours and then jumping down into a pile of empty boxes. Or diving into a water tank on Oprah and holding his breath for 7 minutes (he failed).

The one before him was that goth dude, creepy psycho, I forget his name.

I'll be surprised if this guy, Yif, is not going to be the next big thing. Someone just needs to show his videos to TV producers, or to Letterman and he will become an immediate sensation.

Here's another one. Here, he is making fruit salad.

He is something for sure. Quite popular these days. I believe he is a local gay guy that studied French and English. For some reason I think I have seen him at my shop too. Very friendly and nice guy if my memory serves me correctly.

It wouldn't look amazing and magical if we knew how the tricks work... let's leave it like that and be amazed!

Awesome work.

Aside from the magic itself, the way that he presents and leads into, during, and after the magic is an art by itself. He is doing it SO good. Then the magic is so much on a level what we have not seen before because he lets his audience took very very closely into his hands so that they don't miss a thing. He doesn't "hide" anything.

He is so good that it looks like - and he is playing to that aura - he is doing real magic. Magic as in super natural abilities vs. illusions.

I am a fan!
