    My heart stopped. But when they didn't cut the tape, I figured it was cool.

    WOW indeed - that is one heck of an illusion - I am totally at a loss right now to see how it is achieved.

    My only guess is that it is not a real chipper, the whole box should have disapeared, and, when have you seen a chipper with a hopper that big. The big question, is how did he get from the fake chipper, to the truck. didn't look like a lot inbetween.

    A great trick any way you look at it.

    Good illusion but a sick sense of humor. Been through to many bad things in life to appreciate doing that to people!

    Chriss Angel is pretty good... But I don't like a lot of the camera angles he uses, so there I think there is some obvious trickery going on. But THAT was really well done.

    Good trick. Must have fallen below the chipper and had a connection to the back of the truck. No other way to accomplish that (assuming it was a real chipper).

    Actually there are mirrors under the conveyor look real close they reflect the grass, just before the box enters the chipper he drops out and crawls into the hidden side of the truck.
