Andi Gladwin just appeared on Fool Us, and successfully fooled Penn & Teller with a fun maze-themed trick which you can see here:



Along with the video, he included a lengthy list of credits and thank yous:

"Some thank you's! It started with an idea shared by Mark Elsdon, with some key method elements from a Tenyo trick (invented by So Sato), Karl Fulves’ work, and a packet trick (with lightbulbs of all things!) and then encouragement from Eli Bosnick, Harrison Greenbaum, Josh Jay and Brent M Braun to personalise it more.

Add in some help with the method from Matt Baker plus George, Brian Watson, and Mark Woodsford from the Vanishing Inc. team and Roger Nicot who built the stand and we’ve got a cocktail made from ideas from many encouraging and patient friends.

Thank you to all of them. And as always, thank you to Josh Jay and George Luck who continuously encouraged me to push the trick further along.
"

But the best part is the story about what ACTUALLY happened during the filming. Andi did a 30 minute interview where he talks about the trick and the filming:



At first Penn & Teller told Andi that he hadn"t fooled them. But then more than an hour later, he got a phone call to say that the producers had "lost the footage", and he was called back to do the trick again, only to have something very surprising happen...

The interview is really worth watching, because it gives a lot of great insights into what goes into creating and producing a magic trick, and also how the show works. It also shows that Andi is a very hard working and humble guy, a class act, and a great ambassador for magic.

I'm really impressed they brought Andi back after they "figured out" that they hadn't been fooled.
That really speaks to the integrity of Pen & Teller.
Kudos to the entire production team, especially during Covid.
And add the fact that they fooled Andi into thinking he needed to do the performance again... so cool to see Andi's genuine reaction.
