iPod Magician – Marco Tempest

iPod Magician – Marco Tempest

Hi there, Marco Tempest here with a brand new
magic trick I have been working on. The kind of magic I like uses technology
to create illusions. and I have prepared these three ipods to show you what I mean. I’m going to use them to tell you a
little bit about my favorite subject… Deception One of my favorite magicians is Karl Germaine. He had a wonderful trick in which a rose bush bloomed right in front of your eyes. But it was his production of a butterfly that was the most beautiful. Ladies and gentlemen, “The creation of life.” When asked about deception he said this: “Magic is the only honest profession. leak honest profession A magician promises to deceive and he does.”” I like to think that I’m an honest magician. I use a lot of tricks. Which means that sometimes I have to lie to you. I feel bad about that. But people lie every day. I’ll be there soon. I’m stuck in traffic. You’ve all done it. “I’ll be ready in a minute, darling” “It’s just what I always wanted.”” “You were great.” Deception is a fundamental part of life. Polls show that men tell twice
as many lies as women. Assuming the women they asked
told the truth. We deceive to gain advantage. And to hide our weaknesses. The Chinese general Sun Tzu said
all war is based on deception. Oscar Wilde said the
same thing of romance. Some people deceive for money.
Now… Let’s play a game. Three cards, three chances. “One five will get you ten, ten will get you twenty.
Now where is the lady, where is the queen?”” This one? Sorry… You lose.
I didn’t deceive you. You deceived yourself. You thought you could win. Self deception. That’s where we convince ourselves
that a lie is a truth. Sometimes it is hard to
tell the two apart. Compulsive gamblers are experts in self-deception.
They believe they can win. They forget the times they lose. The brain is very good at forgetting. Bad experiences are quickly forgotten. Bad experiences quickly disappear. Which is why in this vast lonely cosmos we are wonderfully optimistic. Our self-deception becomes a positive illusion. Why the movies are able to take
you on extraordinary adventures. Why we believe Romeo when
he says he loves Juliet. And why single notes of music
played together becomes a sonata. And conjure up meaning. That’s Clair de Lune. Its composer Claude Debussy said, that art is the greatest deception of all. Art is a deception that creates real emotions. A lie that creates a truth. And when you give yourself over to that deception, it becomes… magic! Thats it! Thanks for watching
I’ll see you around.

  4. Did anyone else spend the whole video trying to figure out how he did this?:P

  5. It's technology. You can do whatever you want with it. It's not magic. It's call programming. That's called me.

  18. Half of the views HAVE to be mine! I found this video an Marco a couple of months back. I have insominia and this video, and the form of magic he does, is relaxing! I'd like to personaly thank Marco for his amazing entertainment and also for breaking my insomnia by putting me into a state of relaxation 🙂 -Colt

  19. WOW!

  20. This was a great video but please don't practice phone magic, coz everyone knows that it's just about timing with the phones. There's nothing amazing happening there. Also when you time it wrong, which I noticed a few times in this video, it breaks the illusion completely for me. I might get a lot of hate for this comment but all I'm saying is that phone magic is worst of all magic.

  21. 100% worthy of the like button
