Our. Minds. Are. MELTING.

Listen… we’re all grown ups here… and we all know that magic isn’t real… mostly. Right? Right.

Right? It’s not real… we’re pretty sure it’s not real.

Almost 100% sure. 99% sure.

But then you watch this, the winning trick at this year’s World Championships Of Magic, and that 99% begins to lower dramatically.

While, yes, the fact that it is filmed might immeditaely make you want to shout “EDITING! CHEATER!” at the screen, you’ll be happy to know that this was the trick performed at the Magic Championships, and you can’t edit real life, folks!

Chien filmed the six-minute act at the The Ace Assembly in Hong Kong, and the trick is overflowing with unique and impossible tricks every few seconds.

He said of the act: “I am really excited to share my Fism Act with everyone, I know you guys have been waiting for a while now.Though winning Fism is a big accomplisment, it is also just the beginning for me.

“I’ve been behind the scenes for most of my magic career and its finally time for me be on stage performing. I have lots of things planned out right now and I cant wait to show you guys what I can do! Thank you everyone for the support and love, and please like and share my act, it will help me greatly!”
