The key to knowing it is fake is when he tells you to keep practicing because it is hard. He is messing with us and hoping we make a mess.

This works best with a 30 gallon garbage can over a priceless Persian rug.

No, this actually works.
I got it to work about the 20th try, I put a barricade around the glass with towels, the secret is in the twist.
You have to do it just like you were dropping out a jello mould but faster, and paradoxically, with a smaller motion of the wrist. (smaller amount of turn)

My Mom worked as a waitres many many years ago, and used to get her tip in an upside down glass from time to time.
She could slide the glass off the table and on to her tray spilling a very small amount of water and turn it back over.
Or, she would just pick up the glass spilling water all over the laps of the jokers.
Being a jerk can work both ways.

And no, I didn't really get the water to stand up by itself. Raise your hand if you believed me for just a second.

Hahaha. What I love most about this video (and I'm not being patronizing here) is that even with a fake video all the best magical minds are clicking over into overdrive to try and figure out a way this can be done live. And no doubt someone will come up with something eventually as you guys always do.

It was probably made using magnetic water, like this:

Griffindance, depends on the lighting, the material of the insert and how thin it was maybe?

I agree it's CGI but want to try recreate a similar effect.

One idea I had was a disc with a thin skirt of cling film like plastic, the water tension might keep it steady till you tapped it?

I don't think that would work (worth a try though), but maybe with something kind of like slush powder? It would have to not change the water color, but that is not to outlandish to exist.
Reality is a real killjoy.

slush powder frosts up the water, plus he could not have taped it at the end like he did. It's actually called video editing.

I feel that the verdict of video editing was reached well before the slush powder comment. My slush powder comment was made, slightly tongue in cheek, in reference to the question of how could this actually be done in real life. Apologies if this comes across as pedantic...

They are using magnetized water. It is sooo obvious.
