    THERE IS A FAULT IN REALITY

  • radhinal

    i watched this yesterday, i think the best part is the typo “REALITY” its not made by computer editing, it’s hand-made, that’s the clue for the message “FAULT”

  • Joel

    I love this! I saw it a couple months ago… no idea what it’s for (if anything other than art) but it’s so well done. The editing, the surrealism, the confusion… brilliant.

    Also I totally knew which cup it was in 🙂

    typo? no typo.

  • Christina

    Typo? Also, I work as a magician’s assistant so I totally thought I knew what this video would be but I’m extremely pleasantly surprised. Chop cup is the term of a gaffed cup used in certain tricks.

    • whats it like to be a magician’s assistant?

  • Christina

    Well I’m also a student so it’s only a part time gig but it makes money. We do a lot more than we get credit for.

    • so you know the secrets!!! at what point do they start to trust you with that kind of stuff?

      • Christina

        Assistants probably do more than the actual magician. The magician is just the face of the trick most of the time, especially in stage magic. Close up requires a lot more skill and dexterity.

      • are you on stage in the flashy outfit

  • Christina

    haha I’ve only done that once. We do a lot of magic shows for kids and I TA a magic class as well.

    feel free to email me if you have more questions
