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:
If you spent the weekend binging season two of Stranger Things, you probably have a little hole in your heart where Eleven, played by Millie Bobby Brown, should go. This clip with mentalist Paul Draper is from last year’s Salt Lake Comic Con, but Brown’s charm is utterly timeless. She even shows off her telekinetic prowess by bending a fork on demand.
In case you’ve yet to become obsessed with the Netflix series, it’s about a group of kids in the tiny town of Hawkins who meet Eleven, a girl who’s recently escaped from the mysterious lab she’s spent her entire life in. Elle, as the boys come to call her, has a host of powers that make her a highly-desired asset for the US government, which will do anything to get her back. Stranger Things perfectly captures the look and feel of its 80s time period, and the kids are impossible not to love. Season two released October 27, so if this is all news to you, your Halloween plans are set.
