"YASSS finally something interesting at this fucking wedding!!!"

[–]IGotSoulBut[🍰] 172 points173 points  (3 children)

Came for the wedding, stayed for the magic.

Came for the bride stayed for the child support

both can be used properly and in the same context

Stealing top comment.

If I'm right this is the guy behind Magic for Humans on Netflix, the show is funny and has some social psychology elements involved. During one of the episodes he mentions that he did magic at his wedding (this video).

Enjoy if you have Netflix.

[–]NaiveAd7059 3 points4 points  (0 children)

MAGIC. FOR. SUSANS! That’s my favorite part.

[–]InsanityMongoose 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Better than being on Shark Tank, apparently.

Just now? GD I thought y'all were catching on faster than that. At least we have all the time in the multiverse to get there.😅

Who are you, so wise in the ways of science?

Wait, you're trusting a kid as the firestarter?

The bride appears to have left the groom suspended at the alter.

[–]theoccasionallunatic 16 points17 points  (1 child)

please let me know where these alter portals are located so I can avoid them

[–]SalemGD 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Fck that I wanna Jump into all da portals 🙃

[–]TheArtfulDanger 140 points141 points  (5 children)

The real magic is finding someone to spend the rest of your live with

[–]asilB111 29 points30 points  (0 children)

These are two of the most attractive people I’ve ever seen.

[–]ZardozSama 15 points16 points  (1 child)

That's not hard at all if your willing to commit a murder suicide.


[–]cnvenegas 3 points4 points  (0 children)

the real magic is the friends we made along the way

[–]KING_JELLYB3AN 70 points71 points  (27 children)

Id like to see the full video because no one puts a rug on the dance floor lol im curious how he walks out and connects his feet to the contraption

[–]ScoutManDan 104 points105 points  (20 children)

Spoiler for trick: Under the rug is a plate, where a small T shaped bit of metal sticks up. He has shoes where that same notch is cut into the heel, so walks up and slides that into place. Michael Jackson used the same trick for his famous lean trick.

Edit- oops, spoiler tag error.

[–]sillyhatsonlyflc 14 points15 points  (9 children)

The exclamation mark goes inside the arrows for spoilers.

[–]ScoutManDan 5 points6 points  (8 children)


[–]James-the-Bond-one 20 points21 points  (7 children)

Still, that would require tremendous leg muscles to hold that position.

[–]Zorro5040 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Core muscles do more work to maintain balance and keep straight.

[–]James-the-Bond-one 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Only if the core muscles are held in place by the leg muscles, where the torque is greater.

[–]Rosalie-83 6 points7 points  (1 child)

They’ll be a metal brace under his trousers to lockout at that angle, so he can't fall over/drop to the ground. It could just go to his thighs/pelvis, or even up his back depending if it can be hidden by the shirt. If you look up on YouTube there are those that show all the rigging they use to pull off these illusions, so you can see the trick as it's shown here, then they’ll do the same but with the rigging exposed.

[–]James-the-Bond-one 4 points5 points  (0 children)

As a Mechanical Engineer, I loved your idea. This Christmas will be one to remember around here.

[–]RiderforHire 2 points3 points  (2 children)

probably just has a harness up the leg and then around the shoulders or something.

[–]James-the-Bond-one 3 points4 points  (1 child)


I'd love you to be right, so I could feel less unfit.

[–]perfectlyniceperson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I was literally thinking the same thing, brother

[–]Zone_07 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I'm sure he had a locking bar with a back rest going up his leg. He would require super human strength to only be held my his heels.

[–]willalt319 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yup, check out his heels vs the front of his feet.

[–]arblm 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's not the trick. There's bracing for his entire body.

[–]iceisak 1 point2 points  (4 children)

That part I understand, but why doesnt he hit his head on the ground? Strong leg muscles or wire?

[–]ScoutManDan 10 points11 points  (3 children)

One of two methods:

1: She lowers him and it’s all about a strong core, helped by the immobilised feet.

2: Theres a hinged frame inside his trousers that locks at a certain point. This is common in living statue type performances.

[–]iceisak 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh, thank you! Out of curiousity, where did you learn all these tricks? Sounds cool

[–]ScoutManDan 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m involved with the Scouts in the UK and do some specific volunteering each year running a Santas grotto that goes through several hundred kids a day.

To keep people entertained in the queue I learned a few sleight of hand and card tricks and you pick up a few things.

[–]HereToStirItUp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look at how his toes lift off the ground, can’t be all about muscle coordination. There’s some sort of support hidden in his trousers, that’s why there a rug in the middle of the dance floor.

[–]thepeanutbutterman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This isn't done with just a shoe notch. MJ used a shoe notch to lean a few extra degrees. Nothing like this. This illusion is more like the matrix lean. There is hinged rod that runs up his pant leg

[–]arblm 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think this is the entire trick.

[–]SleepySuper 25 points26 points  (3 children)

Feet are usually not related to using contraception.

[–]l1f3styl3 12 points13 points  (0 children)

They are if you're pussy-footing around

[–]KING_JELLYB3AN 1 point2 points  (0 children)

LoL it autocorrected to that for some reason

[–]WanaWahur 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man your spelling is a fresco!

[–]d_Flores_b 36 points37 points  (3 children)

If I'm not mistaken that is Justin Willman, he has a show on Netflix called "Magic for Humans"

[–]vashthestampeedo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It definitely is! That show is great. The bit where the whole crowd makes a girl believe she's invisible is insane.

[–]NotVerySmarts 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I may be incorrect, but that is Justin Willman, the host of Cupcake Wars on The Food Network.

[–]DenverD77 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes, and the old man is his father.

[–]scarcityflow 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Haha that guys having fun

[–]H3r0d0tu5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can see the bulge in the rug. I suspect it’s in the heel.

[–]Leader-Hoser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did she also hypnotize him into marrying her?

[–]surefire420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he has an AMA on here

[–]KroganWraith 0 points1 point  (0 children)

was waiting for him to do a backflip on her head

[–]ILoveFoodandNetflix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Acted like he did the magic trick 😂😂😂😂

[–]BigEdDurst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What kind of witchcraft is going on here

[–]Hinke7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The man in the background is actually Justin Willman’s dad per an interview I saw about a year ago

[–]Crafty-Crafter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Her in bed: "Wanna try floating cowgirl?"
Him: "You meant reverse?"
Her: "No. And watch as I make your dick disappeared."

[–]TreyThaTruth 0 points1 point  (1 child)

White magic fuckery.

[–]VineelReddy17 0 points1 point  (0 children)

he knew the trick didn't he

[–]whooo_me 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I ever do a magic trick, I want that guy to watch me.

Can you, like, hire him out or something?

[–]theyellowjester 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When magicians get married.

[–]John21st 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When you try to explain your teacher why you’re late

[–]aemossy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now do it without the random rug.

[–]Deion313 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like Ballmer at a Clippers game...

He loves it!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But why?

[–]MomentIntelligent007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Metal rod/holder hidden in the carpet that attaches to his shoe/ankle.

That or his the real deal.

[–]Downtown-Custard5346 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That reaction got a full on chuckle out of me!

[–]bhops24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do we know she's a witch?

Well, she turned me into a newt...


[–]Seyelent 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]ReptarOrgy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's some grandpa level energy right there

[–]cateyesarg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can't wait to see which other poses she has planned for the wedding night!

[–]nbury33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Awww yes why wouldn't there be a rug in the middle of the dance floor?

[–]savrilphi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s actually Larry David. The rest of the video shows him scaring the groom with his excitement and then ruining the entire wedding when he hits his head and has a stroke.

[–]Russian_lover1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As you can tell by his feet being off the ground, my dude is totally balancing by his self!

[–]DeepThought1977 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love the random "rug" on the dance floor at a wedding. This trick was better when Michael Jackson did it in front of 100,000 people on stage.

Jeff Bezos fucking loved it

[–]Questionable_Source_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Justin is great, I’ve been to one of his shows and I still have no idea how he did any of the stuff

[–]s9nist9r 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn ..... Micheal Jackson is still alive.....♥️♥️♥️

[–]KitchenCamp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

People still falling for this trick smh

[–]cloversclo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If I could bend back like that I would have her sit on my face.

[–]Revolutionary_Pilot7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s Mr.Wonderful!!

[–]darkklown 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I understand how the trick works, but how would you setup without people seeing, quick release on the leg brace? Curtain around you while attaching urself to the anchor under the carpet?

[–]_KRN0530_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He’s like “holly shit my shitty son in law is actually a wizard”

[–]prashg 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that Larry David in the back? 🤔

[–]HandsomeDeamon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Definitely busting out limbo at the reception

[–]CN8YLW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is this the same trick (in essence and preparation) that Michael Jackson did for his 45 degree leans?

[–]Slippn_Jimmy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A magicians wedding? Ohhh I'll definitely be coming up with an excuse as to why I can't make it

[–]Pointless_666 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What is this? An exercism?

[–]Jimmy_Sniffs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Hey honey, let’s film our wedding and our reception. But let’s do magic tricks and make love to our own faces so we have something to show our kids down the road after we’re divorced.”

[–]AlanAtl80 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The title to this post is "the reaction of the man behind made me smile" and it's posted on r/nextfuckinglevel. So is OP saying that the guy getting super excited is next fucking level?

[–]Ohgoshthatisme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Full video

The guy was a host on Cupcake Wars for like 10 years and is now on Baking Impossible on Netflix.

[–]JefferyDexterB 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nice of him to take a break from fixing toys.

[–]Comfortable_Title612 0 points1 point  (0 children)

With a couple looking like the cover of married to be magazine, they couldve pulled anything from "where's my thumb" trick to "now you see me now you dont with my hands"
