    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 :)

  • mike

    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

If you grew up in the 80s you’re really gonna like this Instagram account. Steelberg takes current films and makes fantastic retro VHS covers for them.
