Magic tricks utilizing everyday items and just your hands is, to our way of thinking, more baffling than employing fancy canisters and such. We immediately suspect that the unusual item is specially made for a specific purpose. The trick depicted in this video genuinely uses only two rubber bands, and a tiny bit of sleight-of-hand. The magician displays the two rubber bands and proceeds to place one in each hand, tangle them together then to separate them. Then, he only concentrates on one of the rubber bands, stretching it as long as possible and putting it close to his nostrils. Now, we know what he is about to do and we wish him not to because it looks creepy and dangerous. You need to watch the entire video to discover the working of this easy trick.

Tricksters say that this hoax is good for the sinuses actually. One a day keeps the doctor away. They must be joking, of course. This is called the rubber band up the nose. What the magician uses is rubber bands, we are not sure about the size but we thing size 19 is the perfect size to use. They can be on the wrist, in the hands, around the fingers - it doesn’t matter as long as the trick is successful. The bands are twisted away from the guy, he pinches them between his fingers, pulls on them and then put one in his nose. And as he sniffs up, he lets go of the rubber band so, like that. So the illusion of your head going up and the rubber band going back down is a perfect illusion.

These are the steps: First stretch it out, twist it away from you, pull it between your fingers, put it around your nose and as you sniff you let go like that. And basically why a bunch of rubber bands is used, because it is called the camouflage principal in magic. So when he shoots back it looks like, it just looks like you have a bunch of rubber bands and you don't know if it's the same one you pulled off or whatever it is. And this is a really fun item, it's a great way to gross out your friends. So go out there and make some new friends, all right. That's the rubber band up the nose.

Magic tricks are awesome. Especially if no one can figure out your fraud. Magicians are not perfect, even they can have bad days when their trick is revealed and the crowd is not pleased. But this man in the video has shown some good magic skills when performing a ring trick.
