I have a fascination with magic and illusion. No, I don’t know any tricks — I just love watching a good performance.
One of the more charming personalities on YouTube is Mad V, an amateur magician who posted up several short videos of his magic illusions which started building a cult-following. Enough of a cult-following to embolden him to retire his YouTube career and pursue a professional career in magic. Several others have tried to imitate his shtick, but none have captured the deftness of his body language and the smart pairing of music to his silent routines.
This post provides a bit more background and includes an embedded video that was Mad V’s farewell to his YouTube fans — a compilation of several tricks. You can see also see all of Mad V’s videos here.
