Oh boy... here is the transcript:
(...) I'm a bit hesitant to share the secrets behind my illusions because the last thing I want is for people to use them to make more fake
telekinesis videos. But then again, not explaining how I did it could jeopardize the original purpose of urging people to be level-headed,
specifically (and ironically) when it come to being skeptical. After weighing the two concerns, I have come to the conclusion that it's better to
expose this information so that people can be aware of it, as opposed to hiding it so that others would have a harder time replicating videos similar
to my own. But before I get into how I did it, I would like to clarify how I didn't do it.
In no way, shape, or form did I use the following:
-Electronics (of any sort)
-My left hand (lol)
-Or anything else people "knew" I was using...
And because of this, every single one of the hard-headed skeptics who blatantly talked sh** about the video were just as "stupid", "ignorant", and
"gullible" as the believers they labeled as such, and perhaps even more so because at least the believers had a video on their side (a relatively
convincing one at that), where as the skeptics had nothing but this unfounded arrogance in themselves by thinking, without question, that they "just
knew" it was fake AND HOW it was faked. Like I had said many times in the midst of these debates, I was in a unique position to know just how full of
sh** these people really were. They all thought they were so smart lol.
I would now like to take this opportunity to expose the names and locations of the 2 most ignorant skeptics I have run across during this whole
Moving on, the trick was very simple. Both videos made use of the same gimmick, a trick table. That being said, however, still none of those things I
listed above were used in this trick table. In the first video, a pin sized hole was drilled in both the surface of the table as well as the plastic
bowl the set up was sitting on. From there, a person off camera was blowing into a tube that was connected to this hole (under the table) which cause
the wheel to spin. The second video used this same principle, but in a more sophisticated fashion. The surface of the table is hollow, with two
separate air channels going to two different pin holes. Two tubes could "plug in" to each hole on the hollowed legs, which were hidden by thin layer
of laminate that could pop on and off. This is why you can't see the bottoms of the two front legs on the video when the wheel is spinning. And
again, I used an "associate" to plug and unplug the tubes as well as to blow into them for a more convincing illusion.
Kinda sucks now that you know how it's done, huh?
In closing, the initial goal of the video was to urge a healthy sense of skepticism for believers when viewing such videos because they are just
videos. They are suspect by nature; too foul play can be going on off camera. However, after fighting numerous skeptics as part of the role I needed
to play, I was exposed to just how ignorant these skeptics could be. Even knowing that my video was fake, still...these people were so sure of
themselves (sure of things they just couldn't be sure of given what they had seen) that they were borderline delusional. Seriously. I began getting
caught up in the debates because *I knew* they didn't know this video was fake, simply because there is no way to know for sure based on what the
video allowed people to see. And yet, I couldn't expose them for the "frauds" they were because I was too busy being the fraud I was lmao. (Of
course, I have been saying all along that this video isn't proof and shouldn't be seen as proof)
