What an astounding levitation. All angles covered and all. I want to do this! Anyone know where I can learn it?

Look at the comments under the video you linked to. I liked his presentation. He didn't claim much, just let the judges and audience make their own assumptions and interpretations about what he was doing. I will be interested to see what he does next. Whether he goes more for the endurance and pain angle, or tries to demonstrate more of the magical type stunts.

This is HIS version of an older illusion.
The best is to contact him to ask if it is for sale but since he makes his living performing this piece I doubt it.

And remember the illusion is only part of what made this a masterpiece, special head has the look and talent to make this believable.

Why not create your own suspension or levitation?

Thanks. Guess I should've read the comments first. I didn't like the whole "booing" thing either although I did find the "underdog" situation amusing. All I know is I'm doing this in my subsequent act. It must just kill if executed correctly. He nearly gave the audience and judges a heart attack.

Great idea. I think I'll get my cognitive faculties percolating on this one. I've been in the mood for building lately anyways.

Brilliant version of a very old street illusion, done to perfection

I didn't thought about the using the smoke maker in this illusion.
and maybe we have to admit he just made innovation to this illusion, also.

Let's just see if how he can continue to survive in AGT.

I was impressed with Special Head's ability to transform an ages-old static illusion into a dynamic presentation.

If you go to Covent Garden you'll see four or five guys all doing this in about a two block area from the tube station to "magic corner." Getting in and out "exposes" the stunt.... Sergio Barros has a video on his Facebook page showing a guy getting in while folks watch.

Pete, you have got to give kudos on the tibetan singing bowl and flash pot to help with the ins and the outs. I am an instant fan. This guy had the judges going from goof to blow mind in 30 seconds flat. I loved it. Imagine the presentation in a non aggressive and yet raw setting. The outfit, shaved head and ability to reproduce the tomes, perfect. add the rest of fakir material with this guys sense of the odd and wonderful and you got a star.

Pete, so what if others attempt to do it. All those passersby are only a handful in the world. This guy did not expose anything getting in and out, he did it perfectly, and you can't take that away from him. That is what is so good about this presentation.

Your statement sounds very much like a guy saying I have a 4 Ace Trick already, why do I need another one. Or - I already seen a comedy magician, why bother to watch another one - they are just all the same.

As always, it ain't the trick, it's the performance. As Jonathan says, he has routined this such that he covers the business beautifully and blows minds. LOVED IT! (And I don't think Pete was saying anything against Special Head's performance . . . I think he was saying the Covent Garden street performers expose, unless I misunderstood.)

Has he performed in the second "round" yet? I don't watch TV hardly at all, but I'm interested to hear about what happens next!

Y'all read me wrong... I think this guy on TV was AWESOME.... but the Covent Garden scene is crazy with 4 or 5 guys doing the same stunt on the same street with NO PRESENTATION.
