David Copperfield is today's most popular illusionist, and some may argue that he is best one that ever existed. Well, those that say that probably haven't heard of Houdini, the guy who practically invented magic we know today. Some of Houdini's tricks are unexplained even today, more than 100 years after his death (more or less). Probably all of us saw this video where David seems to fly, and calls it "levitation brought to next level". As amazing as it seems, I found another video that explains how he does it. You have to jump inside this post to see it (click on the "continue reading this article" if you are on homepage).

    He made a copyright claim on the second video because it revealed his secret

    I've seen this trick "live" 3 times and still believe it is an amazing illusion! I've watched it on TV as well. TV doesn't give it justice because people assume that it is just TV Magic. See it live and you'll be amazed!!!

    If you look at the rings, they clearly miss him, it rotates under him and avoids the top of him, where the wire is, Duh... Stupid
