Johan Lorbeer floats several feet off the ground, leaning casually against a wall.

I say Photoshop. If he was really doing what it appears he is doing, the people standing around there would be FAR more fascinated and in awe, looking up at HIM and not elsewhere. I noted only one person really looking his direction, and there is not the look of awe I would expect. It's more a casual look than anything with high interest.

Either Photoshop, or there is a ledge attached to the window and he is using that to provide support. I lean towards Photoshop based on the way the feet look as if they're on flat ground.

That's my take.

It's something to do with his arm providing support (not his real arm)

See last line in this article/page

Here’s a little clue on the trick; His arm is the supporting bar, and his real arm is hide inside his cloth.

why is this in the paranormal studies section?
This is very lame.


It's a good thing someone beat me to the punch and this was answered before the "We believe in Johan Lorbeer" Fan club stopped by.

That's all we need.. another "belief" group.

A fake arm would work, too. Still... There is something odd also about his feet. Even in the footage posted above, they seem to be pressing on something. No one who was hanging by a fake arm would keep their feet so consistently as if they were standing on a flat surface. The toes would dip downwards.

So I am guessing it might be a complete structure that is attached somehow to the wall and allows the illusion only of standing in midair with ease (the "with ease" part is the reason I suspect more than a fake arm).

EDIT to add: I hadn't seen the pic in the post above mine before I posted... I see that there is indeed more to the contraption than just hanging on to a fake arm.

His arm doesn't concern me. I don't really care how he does the trick, it's blatantly obvious he's standing on something from the first pic in the thread.

His toes are pressed flat while his heel is up and his leg is bent slightly as though he were :shock: supporting his own weight.

Another image of the apparatus used, not sure but it sorta looks like theres a foot step there or perhaps his shoes are part of the it?
