Easy Magic Trick: How to Bend a Spoon - Version 1

Here's an easy magic trick that every smart aleck needs to know. You grab any spoon, press down on it with your hands and appear to bend the spoon. As your stunned spectators register what you just did (the gall of you!), you lift up the spoon and show that it is unbent, just as you found it.

While it looks as if you bent the spoon with your bare hands, you actually haven’t harmed the spoon in any way.

You can watch a video of the spoon bend along with the explanation here.
