Damn if I know how he does it. Mind boggling.

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Ha! Very funny.
If the street audience wasn't there we would just assume it's a trick poster.
And that is the trick IMO.
 
For thou art with me; thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of Juan Valdez
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of coffee forever.

That's so cool. How did he do that?

Um...it's a trick poster.
The audience is planted.
Forget the audience. Put it out of your mind and you'll see the illusion is not difficult to achieve.
It just looks difficult because we're all thinking "OMG the audience can see the poster and they obviously don't notice anything moving around behind his hands!!".

I guess there's a lot more of these 'tricks' being performed lately. (Chris Freak etc etc) It's still cool to watch though.

Yup. Sorry for being a spoilsport!

I could be dead wrong.

He may just have magic burger hands!!!    :)

Interesting!
So with that trick it's all about controlling the angle from which the crowd can watch you.
If he had people in a circle around him he would be foiled!

I'm baffled.  Even taking the poster out of the picture, how does one explain a burger filling up his obviously empty hands.

  I love magic.

There is someone in the wall behind the poster.

The picture of the burger is a well-concealed cut out which can be pulled back into the wall, then a burger is stuffed through the hole and the guy grabs it.

When his hands are in the magic burger making mode you will notice that the camera can't see the burger picture anymore. Once the real burger is in his hands, a different burger picutre (the blank one) is shoved into place.

  If the poster wasn't attached to a building the trick would be much more impressive.

  But again, the trick is in controlling the angle of sight. You are never allowed to see the space between the guy's burger hands and the wall while the magic is happening.

Interesting link about Chris Freak there, kingy. Thanks. I always wonder how he managed to pull that trick.

  Burger explaination. That makes sense, tenkani. The best part of the burger trick? He manages to eat the stuff without puking.

Yeah, I would have to insist that the burger stuffer wear disinfected rubber gloves.

I don't want some random grubby-handed person manhandling my meat.

I wonder why he would do that expose of how he does his levitation trick.  Doesn't that pretty much wipe it out of his (or anyones elses) repertoire?
