    At 4:46 look at that white box under the ball of yarn, it's kind of shaped like a cell phone then it's gone when they show the chocolate bar.

    Take a look at what the yarn is sitting on. Its white. Notice this objects shape. Then notice what two key things happened next.
    I dont want to give out to many clues but I figured out 3/4 of this trick. Theres just one part that has to many variables and I would never know exactly how its done for sure. I can only guess on that, but the other 3/4 I know.

      +Toria Welsh lol im not guessing its magic. If you want to know, think like a magician. Its not to difficult to figure out if you look hard enough with a different perspective. There's a white box in the shape of what ? Then he removes things without you seeing and then what happens? Use logic and reason to figure out how you could do it with all the steps he took. There are only a few outcomes. Thats why I said im only 3/4 sure on how he did it. One part is completely up to him on how its done so I cant say I know 100 percent because Im not him.

    At 4:50 the chocolate was already inside the small white box underneath the ball of yarn.
    But how on earth he transfer the cell phone to the inside of that ball of yarn?

    • Aha Really
      Aha Really Mês atrás

      The "real" phone was already in the ball of yarn, when questlove initially placed it on the stool. You can see one end of the yarn moving and falling randomly on the top of the ball. When he picks it up again, it's wound-up exactly the same - and since the magic guy never touched it afterwards - you can rule out some fancy technique "transfer". Meaning there's only one explanation: the phone that went into the box isn't the same as the one revealed in the end. The fact that the magician doesn't show the screen to the audience before putting it into the box kind of backs-up this theory.

    I'm still not 100% sure how he does the full trick, but here is what I noticed. Before i explain what he does, notice @ 2:19 that the box has an inner wall that makes the whole box now a bit thicker. Within the outer and inner wall, things can be stored and somehow he pulls down another section. Here is why i think this: if you go back when he puts in the first object, watch his left hand. He puts in the big spoon with his right hand and pulls something with his left thumb. Now, if you carefully watch Jimmy put in his arm, you notice that he doesn't go all the way in. That's because the height was minimized when Dan did whatever he did with his left thumb. So then right before Dan reveals the big spoon, he once again swipes something up with his left thumb. First trick explained. Next he puts in a ball of yarn with a white box under it (with a chocolate inside). After he reveals the yarn, takes it out, and covers the box again, notice he leaves the white box in there and soon after pulls something out and places it in his briefcase, uncovering the chocolate. So now Dan tries to manipulate Jimmy but fails as Jimmy guesses a deck of cards, but Dan goes along. HERE IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING. When Dan puts the phone inside the box NOTICE that he doesn't place it at the bottom of the box, in fact he places it somewhere midway (same section as first trick?) and closes something. NOW WHEN JIMMY PUTS IN HIS HAND TO FEEL WHATS INSIDE HE HAS TO GO WAAAAAY DEEPER THAN THE FIRST TIME, because the height is now the full height. The only thing I have no idea about, is how he put the phone in the yarn, but here are two theories. Magicians have to do a lot of practicing and a lot of studying, so its normal that magicians study people who are on the show and objects they have (like a cellphone), so either somehow Dan got a hold of Questlove's phone before the show and swapped it with an identical phone, with an identical case, with identical cracks on the screen, and the same wallpaper OR swapped the fake phone with his actual phone after the show.

    Guys, can you all please just respect him? Even if he's not David Blaine or Shin Lim, he's still an amazing magician. Comparing magicians doesn't make one better than the other, it just makes it unfair for the amount of practice and work we put in. I just hope we all start praising and reinforcing positively instead of hating as if you could perform it better than he does. He's a great magician, just like Blaine and Shin Lim. Just different styles. Love it or hate it, there's a reason why Jimmy brings him to his Tonight Show.

    One time he did a trick about guessing someone's word then reveals that it was written on his arm but the trick was that it appeared onto his arm but the thing is during the segment you saw it written the whole time, so bad yes I KNOW MAGIC IS NOT REAL, but it left me like really dude, when I see how you pull off the trick its a SHITTY TRICK.

  • Estephan Wilson
    Estephan Wilson 5 meses atrás

    I am not a fan of Dan White his tricks are not spell binding or leave ME at least asking how the fuck did he pull that off. I read many comments and no one mentions that when quest gives Dan the phone, the phone seem to have what looks like 2 playing cards folded up in the back within the phone case. The color of phone also a certain color. The phone from the yarn isn't the same color and doesnt have the cards in the back, yes there is no such thing as magic but a shitty trick is a shitty trick and this was shitty and poorly executed, my shock would have been if the same exact phone with those 2 cards came out, that would have been awesome right and would have left me saying how the fuck he pull that off.

  • Charlene Jones

    That yarn trick was the worst. Even I figured out how that trick worked. He pocked up the yarn by the phone the first time when Quest is trying to figure out what was in the box.

    Questlove never really had his cellphone (he thought he did) but it was a decoy, a fake, a lookalike. Someone must have gave him the fake phone and he just put it in his pocket thinking that it was his real phone. Little did he know, his real phone was in the ball of yarn the whole time.

    First, Quest goes to his pocket *_VERY_* quickly when asked for the phone. Second, what if Quest didn't have his phone on him at the time? Third, Quest's reaction could be authentic if his cell had been switched before the show by someone of confidence - it would have been most likely after Quest had silenced his phone in order to start the show taping. Or, Quest was in on the whole thing (which could tie back into #1). Quest's very quick hand movement to his phone upon the silent request was almost as if he was anticipating the question.

      noL1Fe - Look at the amount of time between when Dan actually makes the cell phone gesture and when Questlove begins to grab for his phone. It is a wee bit too fast for something that should have been that unexpected.

    It's a nice performance by the three of them, and it makes acceptable TV entertainment, with a neat twist. There's absolutely no proof, however, that the whole stunt wasn't pre-arranged by the three of them before the performance. Two phones can be made to look alike, and you never see inside the second box.
    Never trust a performer if they pick assistants, whether they're the hosts, from an audience, or even when in a public place. Stooges are easy to arrange, even if you've seen the performance previously.
