A reader (thanks, Jim) recently alerted me to a magician who goes by "Yif" who has a series of well-watched YouTube videos. In his videos, Yif is performing magic David Blaine style out in the streets and for apparently random spectators.
There's some great material here and the segments are well shot and edited and feature lots of mood and style. There are segments that I find noteworthy:
In his video called "French Breakfast," which you can watch here, Yif works with bread dough (3:12). Stay with the segment for the astounding finale - watch and you'll understand exactly what I mean (4:33).
In another amazing sequence called "Eagle Coin Penetration," Yif performs a coin into glass like none other that I have ever seen (4:13). You can watch it here.
One more segment echos the production in the "French Breakfast" but with a rose, and the bill changes are insane (5:27). You can watch it here.
Comments? I'd love to hear them. I know that I have my thoughts.
