How? Why? I bet he has the same power like Hiro Nakamura - there is no way he can pull this off without it!

The funny thing about Magic, is that it really doesn't exist.

There's a Nobel Prize waiting for anyone whom can discover otherwise.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but, based on current empirical evidence, which has had thousand of years of trials, there's no such thing as a "power."

And that, my friends, is why he's paid millions of dollars for his show in Vegas.

Dont like it, i hate any magical act involving poor birds shoving them in to his pocket like that great act but could do with out the animals

i liked the music 8-)

#15 If the birds really didn't like it you really think they wouldn't try to fly away? or at least avoid the guy? obviously he/they take good care of them.

Hey buddy I think you are trying to bust someone who isn't really trying to make a point about real "powers". For your information, Hiro Nakamura does have powers, but he doesn't really exist. He comes from the "Heroes" series which are very good by the way. So, it is kinda sad to see you have some sort of "argument" with him, but if you wondered why you had a negative rate, well now you know why. But you should watch heroes, its pretty good.

Very impressive performance! Even after watching closely 3 times I can't figure out where the 3 candles came from at 1:40 :O
#18 Good one! >:) But you should mention when a video is NSFW, not everybody watch vids at home...

ok the first two birds are coming out of his sleeves, watch carefully and you will see it (they are too wide but the black fabric hides it very well). When he tosses the 2nd bird up you can see him toss his gloves behind him in the smoke.
Then the candles. They are hidden in his jacket. He either pulls them out while distracting with the white ribbon thingy or he has some sort of mechanism to launch them (at 1.49min you can see one shoot up into his hand).
The last candle he hides just by letting it fall into his jacket again while creating a distraction.
The last bird comes from his inner jacket's pocket (very hard to see). When he goes and ditches the white ribbon he picks up the new ribbon that he throws up with his left hand while hiding the bird with his right hand.

^^ voila, the kind of magic video can ruin :P (instant replay's)

He hides the bird in his pocket. Thats just... Not right.

Also funny how his hand goes out of the bottom of the picture whenever he is right about to to something.

at 2:10 you can see how how lifts his man in the coat to announce the bird to show off.

Magic is a game of dexterity, inteligence and patience.

Not that hard to figure out how it's done. Still the skill to do these tricks deserves some consideration. If only it hadn't been done a million times before by a million other people.

Very impressive, slick is the word I'd use. One has to assume there is some protection over the use of birds in magic and one also has to assume that he is not contravening that.
