Neurotic sleight of hand

Some lovely magic to end the day, from the International Magic Convention in Beijing.  The YouTube caption says this:

FISM award winner and French magic champion Yann Frisch is one of magic’s freshest talents. Yann has been creating a sensation wherever he goes with his unique take on classic magic, an absurdist take on the cups and balls. Cool, clever, stylish and oh so artful. We are proud to have one of France’s top performers at EMC.

Be sure to watch to the end; it’s only 4.5 minutes.

    So that is how the universe began: four balls and a cup from nothing.

    Very, very good.

    2K years ago he would have been the founder of a very powerful and enduring religion.

    That’s the first time I’ve found myself applauding a video. Echoing others–brilliant!

    It takes a lot of balls to be successful in a career like that.
