Funny Magic Clips: mechanical dove


Swedish magician Håkan Berg does magic with a mechanical dove on the "Talang 2011" TV show ("America's got talent", the Swedish version). Everyone is speaking Swedish, so for non-Swedes it may be hard to understand what is going on. Basically, the magician is being very confident before the tricks ("Very few people in the world can do this with a deck of cards!") and frustrated afterwards ("Dammit, it's a different color than the one that disappeared..."). The jury members are mainly laughing and saying "That dove is still flapping its wings." and "I can't stop laughing about that stupid dove!".

While actually being a very skilled magician, in the performance he manages to look really funny and natural doing everything (except the last production) wrong in the way a beginner with too much confidence would do things wrong. Very funny. I also love it when the water disappears from the cup and shoots out of his mouth.

スウェーデンのマジシャンのHåkan Berさんが「Talang 2011」というスウェーデンのテレビ番組(America's Got Talent(アメリカズ・ゴット・タレント)のスウェーデン版)でふざけてて面白いパフォーマンスをした。スウェーデン語で喋っているから、分かりづらいかもしれない。基本的にやる前にマジシャンが自信を持って「世界でこれが出来る人は俺以外あまりいないんだよね」とか言ったりして、やってからは困ってて、「うわ~、消えたやつと違う色だし…」とか独り言言ったりする。審査員が笑いながら「あの鳩がまだばたばたしているね!」とか、「あの鳩が超うけるんだけど」とか言っている。

実はマジックが上手なのに、 このパフォーマンスで面白くて、自然に自信のありすぎな初心者マジシャンと同じように全部(最後のプロダクション以外)失敗する。うける。カップから水が消えて、また口から飛び出る時も大好き。
