There's no such trick on the market. That had to be a photoshopped video.

It looks like an adaptation of Andrew Mayne's "Bi-Section"

Jim it is available. I don't know if it is original. It's called head drop. Cyril does it. Don't know if he is originator

Did you watch the above video, that is not "Head Drop" by Cyril, the above is camera trickery.

Here is Cyril doing Head Drop:

His torso did not disappear as in the above referenced camera trick as in the original posting.

Head drop is available from some magic dealers on the Web.

Andrew Mayne, as I have sated above, does a similar illusion, except his drape never goes to the knees or below. So, the basis for this is Mayne's illusion.

Whether this guy uses camera trickery to achieve the full reveal or not, I don't know. If not...I'd sure like to get my hands on it!

By the way...I include Bi-Section in my show...but I do Mayne's version.

Here is a video of someone doing Bi-Section on YouTube. See the similarities?

That looks like a very young Cyril in the video. I still say the original post request is video editing.

The person may have started with Andrew Mayne's effect, but then did some real editing for the removal of the coat and the walking. Just my opinion. As if it was really happening those people in the distance would come running.

If you want the Andrew Mayne version, it is available for download here:

If you want the Unlimited version on DVD here:

I agree with video editing, I also think Cyrils looks better.
