The best thing about Stranger Things was that the 80’s throwback theme was so good it finally got magicians to stop stealing Hans Zimmer’s songs for their social media posts.
Jokes aside, this is a neat variation on the camera drop trick that’s been haunting Facebook as of late performed by killer close-up magician, Rodney Reyes. We’ve featured him on the site before when he collaborated with the incredibly talented Patrick Kun. Reyes’ technical skill and slick presentation are a must-see if you ever get the opportunity.
He’s also responsible for my favorite trick reaction video:
Patrick Kun and Rodney Reyes are great magicians on their own, but when they team up, something special happens. They’ve collaborated on a bunch of Instagram short videos together, and Kun recently uploaded a longer edit featuring a handful of those compilations to YouTube. Kun and Reyes share shots conjured from thin air, mess with poker chips, and even share some smoke with fellow close-up magician Shin Lim in a cheeky spin on Lim’s routine. Check out more of what they’re working on by following Kun on Instagram here and Reyes on Instagram here.
