The Roots completely lose it during a backstage visit from magician Dan White.
I thought it said ‘blackstage’
I was like WTF?!
I wonder why Dan White is the only white guy there
Deez nut for president!
It’s funny that the Roots reacted the same way comedians joke about black people reacting to magic.
The best part was watching them freak out :D
The first trick… I picked the same things…
I legit said 37
last time dan white was on, he fucked up his trick. he hesitated for too long! watch it. he’s a bad magician.
Everyone says 37 if asked to pick an odd number between 1-50 with different digita
at 2:16 hands go intentionally out of frame because dan is touching kamal’s left hand “insisting” on it to be flat when it really doesn’t need to if the point is for it to be in the fist position.
i imagine he marked his hand before the act without him knowing.
I want to know why that one guy decided to unlike this video.
No better audience for a magic trick than a black guy.
Fuck that! I thought and said 37 in my head too! What is going on here? :D
THIS IS FAAAAAKE.
The roots are obviously CGI.
I thought 29 and king of hearts
I thought 7 spades in my head before James did! JAMES IS MAGIC!
WHITE DEVIL!! IT’S BLA.. NO IT’S WHITE MAGIC! WHITE DEVIL!!
If you are trying to figure out the first trick, don’t. It’s one of those tricks that a magician does for a small audience where calculated risks can be taken in hopes of high rewards. He obviously had a backup plan but this is one of those rare cases of almost real magic. Second trick is a well known one so I won’t start to explain that one.
The first one is easy, he can just put a 7 of spades in all odd positions with different digits, 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 35, 37, 39…
you see one black group reacting to magic, you’ve seen them all
now allow one of them to shuffle the cards before* and after* they make their picks, then i’ll be impressed ✌(-‿•)✌
Love their reactions each time ??
“AHHH!!! I’m outta here, I’m outta here!” So awesome! ????
It’s so much funnier if you’ve seen Aziz Ansari’s comedy routine
hahahah “i’m OUT”
Someone should make a show “Black Man Reaction”
lmao James walking off
lmao I love the roots
YouTube is mainly about the comments
LOOOOL “I’M OUT I’M OUT”
These were such amazing tricks! I love their “freaked out” reactions the best though lol!!
Aziz Ansari- “when a black man sees a magic trick”
American’s got talent material over here
He’s just redo david Blane’s tricks lol
IM NOT EVEN JOKING MAN I FREAKING PREDICTED THAT HE SAY 37 OMG OMG OMG
quest love be freaking out
obviously those 3 guys were in on it… don’t be simple-minded
That man is the devil
Questlove “Get Out of My Dressing Room!” They talked about this during the live show. Quest love was like “We all screamed” and one Root guy with the hat on that says “that was dope” shakes his head No, cause he was the only one who didn’t run away screaming. Now I believe it. lol
When he put the 37th card down and walked away he reminded of the sad frog from the memes ?
AAAAAAAH! I am as freaked out as them!!!!
For some reason…I am reminded of Tyra Banks when she met up with David Blaine on the street.
Quest love its like fuckd that shiz im out
someone tell me how the first one works lol
ok I’m totally not trying to make a race comment here but he says “7 of spades” out loud and the camera zooms out and I see 7 of the Roots hanging out, the white sax guy not there. Thought that was funny. But that’s all!
7 of spades. There’s 7 black guys in there. Lol.
I wonder how did the magician do that?
The way James just walks away after the trick lol!
I said 37 before the guy in the band did. I think there may be some subliminal “forcing” going on here.
Can we just have a whole segment where magicians play their tricks on the Roots? I would be thoroughly entertained.
What is this witchcraft?
Chosen card @ any # , amazing ! ! !
I think that the guy that said 37 was in on the trick, and he either used some sort of algorithm to stack the deck so he could figure out that he needed to pick 37 easily, or, he remembered the whole deck. or both of them were in on the trick.
I love The Roots. Love em! They gotta get back to Macedonia for another epic concert.
Maybe he shook his hand earlier and he had a small piece of lamentation paper taped to the end of one of his fingers that he previously marked with a black X. Distracted his visuals and introduced himself shook hands left the print and then removed the lamented paper from his hand, then started performing the tricks once he entered the room. That is why he quickly said raise your hands flat and then close your fists, so the underside of his hand was not raised first. Any thoughts? Hahaha it was a pretty rad trick and I think legitimate.
You could say he pulled some… black magic…..yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh
I think Aziz needs to see this
I didn’t know Quest Love was so tall. ?
Wtf i said 37 lol
Seven black guys standing in a row and he chooses seven of spades for no reason. That’s subliminal right there.
black people can not stand in the same place when they are laughing, finding out something incredible or when seeing magic. Fact. And I know cause I’m black. Lol.
Wow. Nicely done.
That awkward moment when the backstage trick is better than the trick performed on the show…
This presentation had much more of a “street” feel too it, with the shaky camera and the small crammed space. All in all it was a much better presentation than the one on TV.
Magic is so fun!
haha, so simple yet so explosive <333
that was dope :)
How to Clear a Room.. Lesson 1: Witchcraft.
I said 7 of hearts. ReallY Close to what he picked.
wow. many real. such legit.
So the card one I think he just relied on statistically probable choices. I personally thought of 37 as well so maybe he just got lucky. The sharpie one I think he somehow marked the other guy’s hand before or during the presentation of the trick.
“Dat was dope, dat was Super Dope!” XD
asiz ansari theory is true!
does he have any relation to dan black
Seven of spades? There are seven black guys in there. lol jk.
penn and teller called. they want their trick back from the 80s brah…
Wow this magician is very luky ! 37 seven of spades … Mnemonica Stack .
3 of Clubs, 33. Damn, didn’t get mine. T_T
X trick was camera assisted
Black people have THE BEST comical freak-outs. Hands down.
Amateur tricks. The first is well known. 9.5 times out 10 people are going to pick the number 37. There are only so many choices 13, 17, 19, 31, 35 , 37, 39. When you say not 11 people tend to go look for a number in the middle, and avoid all numbers with 1 or 9 in it – because most don’t think of 1 or 9, leaving 37 as the most popular choice. Seven of spades is another mental card force, most people will pick number seven and he said guys will pick spades
As for the the “x”, what we don’t see off camera – (when he says “hold your hands out flat”) – is he grabs both his hands as an excuse to pretend to position them properly and then uses a reverse stamp with his middle finger to mark the x on his palm. “Drop one of your hands” is another mental force to get him to drop the right hand because he motions towards it. The rest of the talking about clenching the fist etc., is just to put enough distance between the time that he touched your palm and revealed it, to make you forget that he did actually touch you
I thought I saw Vincent D’onofrio
I did this trick on a friend they said 7 of spades, then for a number between 1 and 50 the said 32 and some how it worked!!!!
the roots are late night’s best kept comedic secret
Why do black people always get so uppity?
Absolutely FAKE Physics does not allow for such things to happen with out the human that the trick is happening too, to have the human Brain knowledge of it happening, in other words this trick was done with ALL or the 3 knowing what and how to do the trick. PERIOD
im OUT! IM OUT! :dd
Bro… That was dope! haha
The first trick have I seen before, can’t remember where! But the second one.. Mind = blown!
I thought of 37 WTF
Damn your into the Black arts of magic!!
