Worst. Magician. Ever.

Have you guys seen this Marco Tempest idiot on YouTube?

Marco and the Magic Umbrella

Marco and the Magic Pencil

Marco and the Magic Belt

Basically, his whole act consists of people handing him things just off camera. I mean, WTF? How "amazing" are some of these "tricks"?

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Not as funny as the one guy who over-dramatically makes elevators go up and down and what-not. That would be the worst magician ever.

At least it's not as creepy as the naked chick with the red hankerchief.

Where's the switch in the belt one? Or, at least, the switch when he goes from her shirt to his? That was done fairly seamlessly.

There are two "tricks" in this one:

First, when she goes in to kiss, the camera pulls back and its the guy. The switch there is obvious in the close-up. Stupid.

The second trick is that it zooms in on her belt and after some talking it zooms up her shirt and its the guy again. I can't figure out where the switch is there, but it's still stupid...

So I guess I agree with the O.P.

I think it has to do with the horizontal stripes of his and her shirt. Notice when the camera pulls back he doesn't have the "Actor" belt on. The camera is panning up but once it's past the belt, it moves to the right. As long as their stripe line up with each other, it looks seamless.

Other than that, I got nothing...

The elevator guy makes me laugh a little. Probably because I occasionally do the same thing to automatic doors, just to get a giggle out of the girlfriend.
