Halloween head drop trick

What makes this Halloween costume special effect even more special is that magician Rich Ferguson performed it in the famous Bubblegum Alley in San Luis Obispo.

Here's a video that shows how to do the head drop illusion.

    Proof positive that when the aliens come we will ignore them…(well until they start killing people at least.)

  2. Really should have a mechanical component concealed in the back, which sprays the onlookers with blood and offal at the moment of truth.

    Pro-tip: no one actually says “Achoo!” when they sneeze.

    Is the “how to” link correct?

    Interesting how we really expect our clothing to closely follow our actions.  must be racial memories of fur or feathers or zoot-suits.  In anycase, this chap performs the illusion very impressively  (i’d end up with a really wry neck)

    Ahh SLO town. That’s Rich Ferguson the magician, really intelligent guy, not your average corn-ball magician. Plus the people you see in the video, including the owner of the local hip spot coffee shop. Classic.

    This was used to great effect by the samba school Unidos da Tijuca in 2011:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TUzHi29OZsY

    I think the ending is the best thing I’ve seen all week.

    Just like that, the internet is reduced to a more or less irrelevant battle for second place.
