Magician's Attempt to Impress Woman Shattered by Assistant Who Exposes His Secret

An assistant of a Chinese magician interrupted his boss’s attempt to impress a woman by revealing the secret behind a magic trick in Shenzhen, in Guangdong province.

The magician in the video, who goes by the apt stage name Pokerface Man, filmed himself performing a magic trick for a woman.

The Pokerface Man starts the routine by asking the woman to block the top and bottom of a glass with her hands. Then, he grabs a red ball from the glass and makes the ball reappear in the glass.

The woman is impressed by the trick, and the Pokerface Man tries to kiss the woman. But his male assistant interrupts and reveals the secret of the trick.

Pokerface Man, whose real name is Hao Yakun, told Storyful that he developed the idea behind this video and asked two of his assistants to act it out with him.
