It was Arthur C. Clarke who said, “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” This clever clip almost demonstrates his point. Almost.
German magician and comedian Simon Pierro is well known in his homeland for combining a unique brand of ‘Hocus Pocus’ with multimedia projects. After scoring his big break on Germany’s ‘Candid Camera’, which was still delighting German audiences in the late nineties, he took his talents to the rest of the world, even winning the 2004 Siegfried & Roy Award for magic in Las Vegas. (Unglaublich!)
Today, you can find him on YouTube. In this video, already viewed by almost 2.5 million viewers, Pierro combines those two things that us loud and proud geeks from Anthill Manor hold dear: Parlour tricks and Apple products.
Behold mere mortals! (And cue Europe’s Final Countdown.)
You are about to witness some ma-gic!
