Illusionist Dan White hides a nail in one of five paper bags and has Jimmy and the Tonight Show audience take turns randomly choosing which he should smash with his hand.
David Blaine did this to Kanye
This trick is pretty stupid..there are too many ways to fool the audience if he turns his back on them.
theres an extra fold in the bag thats how he can tell
Neat Zork! Hello There, record questionable What’s your opinion about thiw
I always say you aren’t a good magician unless you pretend you got spiked…
i’m sorry but after seeing david blaine do this trick nobody else can really compare
I know this trick. There is a pin in every pack but they are not attached to the block, he just kept it there along with the blocks. When he attached on pin to the block and was shuffling it without anybody looking, he took off the pin from the block and just placed it alongside the block in the packet. So none of the packets hurt him. In the end when he was taking out the block, he put the pin inside the block when they were still in the packet and took them out as if they were attached together.
when the audience called out no.3, he re-number the remaining bags.
David Blaine did it with no blocks
Previous trick (the one with metal detector) was a lot better. Though, still obvious, but way better than this one.
what an amateur trick.
Pretty floored magic…
All the bags have spikes in them! Am I the only one who noticed the way he removes each bag after hitting them? You must have noticed that too, right? 🙂 Nice adaptation of the trick!
The first guy who caught the ball looked like Lloyd Ahlquist.
mehh. this tricks way overdone. I thought there’d be some twist. shit choice
I’m Impresseh! Sup yo! oceanic afterthought ! !!!
I’m sure he takes the nail out when he turned around but what I don’t get is how he put it back in at the end. When he goes to open the final bag it’s obvious the nail wasn’t there already so it had to be up his sleeve but he had no time to take it out of his sleeve. Even if it was resting up his sleeve and there’s a really strong magnet in the wood, he still grabbed the nail by the tip when he took it out so that can’t be possible. The nail had to be there already. He did this some other way.
The bag with the nail had a little fold at the bottom, am guessing that’s how the audience knew from their side or nah!?
if you want to see this trick go wrong look for “Center TV Zauberer mit nem Nagel Trick” on youtube. some one did it on live german television and it didnt work out.
Jimmy needs to watch Pain Olympics if he thinks this is cringe worthy.
Remember we never saw the other side of the bags it could’ve been marked
Nailed it! (Magicians will know)
he felt the bag and used nlp
a few vids out there were this tricks goes wrong.. ouch.
4:08 He pulls back Jimmys hand to choose the target..
David Blaine did this trick first
Isn’t this basically that Derren Brown trick from a few years back?
As a magician myself I do quite enjoy all the speculation going on in the comments about how this trick is done. I have read the comment section for almost 10 minutes and I have yet to find anyone who has got it right. Everyone seems to believe that he pulls out the spike and puts it in his sleeve. Alltough I won’t explain this trick to anyone because of the magicians code, I will tell you that he does not put it in his sleeve at any point during the trick.
CONGRATULATIOPS. HOW DO YOU DS? LETTERS CATTLE ” !!
I don’t think this is done using the normal method of spikes at the bottom of all bags and sleight of hand taking the nail out. First, the final bag IS the exact bag he put the spike in, you can tell by a slight crease on the bottom edge that other bags don’t have. Second, Jimmy checks the bag before it’s closed and he doesn’t put his hand in it before closing it. Watching at .25 speed, that bag is out of sight for half a second, but Jimmy would see if he tilted the bag. His hand also doesn’t go deep enough into the bag to replace the nail.
I really think this is mentalism rather than sleight of hand. He knows which bag has the nail and he words his questions carefully so it always gives him an out. He doesn’t ask the first two audience members which bag the nail is in, he asks them to pick a bag by number. The final two bags, he has Jimmy pick one, and if Jimmy picks the unsafe one, he smashes his own hand on the other one.
Why did he switch the same bags
His trick is literally up his sleeve
bag was marked! Jimmy was in on it. .lol
Luckily neither Christian Bale or Hugh Jackman were in the audience.
This is an awful tricks. Its not even a magic. At first, the magician already stack the bag and shuffle the bag on his own so, he must already know the bag that contain the nail. Then, to trick the audience, he ask the audience to choose the bag without the nail. But, he is already know where the nail is.. Urgghhh such a shame..
I could tell which one it was since the beginning, the bag with the spike had an extra crease on the bottom, it also had a dot on the top left side (viewer left). Boring.
I love how everyone is saying it’s an old trick and over done but I’m sitting here extremely entertained because I’ve never ever seen it done before ???
So the only way to do this reliably is to remove the spike in the beginning and then put it back in at the end, right?
At 1:12 you can notice he knows where is the bag with the nail and later on he puts it towards the end of the table…
The bags are clearly marked. When he does his little spin he marks the bag with the nail. Oldest trick in the book.
Was he on Americas got Talent?
More faker than my girlfriends tits
I own and perform this version of the spike trick and none of your guesses are correct LOL. It’s fun to see what kind of imagination you guys and girls have though :)
Does Magician mean being lucky these days?
He placed a sticker on the bag with the spike as he was switching them or just remembered what that bag looked like
The bottom of the bag has a small crease in it (bottom right hand corner) with the nail in it. All the bags look the same but that one. Then Jimmy directs the last few choices…that is a very weak trick :(
Even though I know he knows what he’s doing and that there’s no way for him to get impaled, this is still a super intense video.
sadly you could see the move at the end
GLAD TO SEE IX HOW DO YOU DO? CARRY STORMY
This trick has been around for decades.
When he puts his hand into the bag, he slides the nail up his sleeve.
When he puts his hand back into the bag to show the nail is there, in reality he is sliding the nail back down his sleeve onto the board.
So many people here are dumb af. The nail was never in any of the bags. He slides it up his sleeve when he puts his hand in the bag and slides it out of his sleeve on the last bag. Doesn’t matter what bag was picked or if the bags were marked or whatever dumbass idea you guys think of. The nail was never in any of them.
ive had a 5 inch nail pierced through my left feet before, and i don’t know if its because i was in shocked but i only felt a little pain, but when it got swollen later on, that was a different story
Sleeves and scripting. Hurrah for ‘magic’
The Fifth bag is rigged as hell… as you can see on the buttom right of the bag it is kinda folded.. i knew he woudnt touch it no matter what the audience said…
“Dur, I dunno how he do it?!!!” SLEIGHT OF HAND!!!!
Random person my a**?
the key to this trick is to play the words of the audience selection. he can just spin whatever number they choose into being safe or having the spike. if someone had picked 3, he would have turned that selection into the one with the nail
another way to do this trick is to have the pin pop up with a switch. so when he reaches in to get it out he flips the switch
for a sec i thought fallon was jimmy kimmel
I really hate this trick. Honestly.
I mean COMON…28 seconds in the block he pulled out had a nail in it…the last one he knew didnt…if he didnt put the apple on the nail straight on it would have collapsed like the rest of them PATHETIC…
first guy was in on it he picked 2 making the nail 2. the other guy was actually random and he wouldnt pick 2 again
You’re one purpose in life is to fake like what you’re doing is real. What a career!
Heyc. Breathtaking0 like devilish What do you think, guys/..
It looks likh. You’ve Outdone Yourself0 smoke shade What’s your opinion about that !
This trick has been seen 800 times by now in all got talent shows in the past 2 years, There is nothing fun about this anyways… seeing someone risk hurting himself in a stupid way… Was wondering why i watch more Conan lately and now i really don’t..it’s obvious Jimmy go back to your late night roots… you are getting way too much mainstream and exposing yourself has a fake Barbie doll for your camera’s acting has if you are now hosting sesame street… Your show only is 2 hours earlier… then before its not 8 am.. Why does this feel like i am watching the meteo channel now…
On that note though it is a bit sad if you look at jimmy’s left hand how crooked his finger is. Hand injuries just never heal right do they. But it is nice to finally see him be able to use both hands, But less Kid crap Jimmy!
David Blane is the one who has been doing this.. He did it on his special… Dude needs to be more original
I reckon he put a sticker on the one with the spike when he had his back turned and they acted like they didn’t see it
I’ve seen this trick several times and i still cringe when he/she hits his/her hand on the bag
at 1:09 after he put the nail in the bag watch he put his finger exclusively he knows where its :,) he didnt really mix it at 1:36 he check it to make sure at the third bag . and jimmy didn’t mix the bag with the nail. but he knows watch it.
I knew what bag it was in since the beginning. He didn’t fold it good enough from opening it so it was alittle different than the others
Someone’s seen Mr. Blaine
I love to eat cheetos puff
you wanna see a german magician fails at this trick on live tv ? type in youtube “zauberer mit nem nagel-trick” translated : magician with a nail-trick .. but search with the german sentence.
You’re A Naturdl. Hey there. changeable pale What’s your opinion about that,%guys
Why didnt he show the whole block in the beginning?!?!?!?!?!? I havent watched the whole vid yet… just my 1st observation….
His shaking hand makes it more real even if we all know it is a trick and ends ok.
Oh wow. Is this a new trick? I’ve not seen this one before. Nope. Never.
Well what did you expect dummies! real magic? or real tricks! lolololol
I’m pausing this so I can make this comment: ok so obviously what’s gonna happen is he’s gonna go through all of them and none of them are going to have a nail. I mean if it did have a nail it wouldn’t be much of magic
Would’ve been mindblowing if the nail disappeared instead.
Is the nail in the block with magnets? And he places it on the block when he reaches in to grab it?
there is a mark on the back of the bag
Penn and Teller’s deconstructed version of this is infinitely better.
Did you guys see the german magician where the trick went terribly wrong and he actually accidentally slammed the nail through his hand.
Definitely didn’t copy Darren Brown >.>
lol too funny
not that amazing every bag got nail inside when he push down the bag he do it from the side not from the top.
there is a video of this effect on youtube performed with steak knives…the magician used a woman volunteer and it went wrong…knife thru her hand. no kidding, its horrible. felt so bad for her and the magician.
I don’t know how this trick was done, but the magician does touch the bags quite a bit throughout the trick, for no apparent reason at all but to probably test by weight or movement of what’s inside where the nail is. As for the audience’s participation, I’m stumped on that one and how they chose the empty bags every time.
same trick like everyone else who done this shitty trick…
Did you expect that ?
they’re finally airing the real reason why his hand was in a cast
