Maybe you youngsters can help me figure this out. I left a couple of comments on the YouTube page for Devlin's video. A reply says: "lol @ greg mcmahan and his fake job getting owned by this guy". I know "lol" means "laugh out loud", but what does "fake job" and "getting owned" mean?

I feel so old and un-hip.

I think this is Andy Kaufman style comedy made on purpose to enrage any serious magician that comes across it. The more he can stir the pot, the bigger laugh he gets. He obviously had somebody working the camera. Who could or would film this without telling him how awful it is.

The rock guy must be a parody, the other guy just doesn't know any better.

Getting owned means this guy is better then you, and beats you in pretty much every way. Fake job is exactly that, the person is dissing your career choice.

Your way better Greg. I have you "Kid's Think It's Funny" book and I love it.

It sounds like a huge case of sour grapes to me. The guy who wrote that is obviously inferior, knows he is inferior, and has an inferiority complex to boot. He also has a big nastiness infection.

Devlin has merged professional wrestling and magic, and the result is... Kaufmanesque...

Devlin's clip is a parody.

Marti Brill is 100% serious. He thinks he's good. He used to participate on some of the other forums a decade ago, he was incapable of following advice or suggestions on how to improve. I think there's something wrong with him mentally.

Do you know Devlin personally? Hilarious video even though it may be a farce.
