    Default What if telekinesis was real?

    These unfortunate coffee shop customers got the shock of their lives in this prank. At least I hope they were random members of the public rather than all actors.




    How would you react?

    I would call Uri and say to him: "Look Uri, this is the new style, my friend. Nina Kulagina was the Russian Cold War hoax, but you was always the amazing one. Come back to Germany. Since the 1970s you are welcome. We still have the flying soucer made of wax and papier-mch from your last TV-Show (Uri Geller Live: Ufos and Aliens, 15. November 2008 ). Please come back. The stage is yours."

    Not seen him on tv for years

    I think I would probably freak out like really badly....We see stunts and jokes being played but do they honestly stop and think how ppl can be affected??? I mean nobody knows the physical or even mental condition of the customers not to mention the effect this can have on children if they happen to be around.

    Funny that's actually what one of my colleagues said pretty much. I'd hope people would be able to see the funny side after, or at least not be affected badly by scary pranks. Maybe it would be better if they were all actors.

    Lol - I would have been shocked initially but would soon realise that stuff like this is not real and that a prank is being pulled. The adrenalin rush would be awesome though.

    It's a stunt orchestrated by MGM and Screen Gems for the remake of Brian de Palma's Carrie (Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdoVioPv0fs).

    Maybe the visitors are scripted too because if you look closely to the camera work, it's hard to believe, the cameras are really hidden. It's no coincidence that no children are present far and wide.
    And see the funny eye catching actor, playing a construction worker with yellow helmet and orange waistcoat at 1:50.

    His most magical moments he have had 2002 in the TV-Show "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!".
    Abracadabra!
    Ups!
    Uri was first to leave the jungle.

    Pretty good marketing move, some of my friends were also sharing the clip on Facebook yesterday too

    I think a lot of the times on tv, even the people that are supposed to be unaware of what's going on are paid actors as well. When watching Dynamo: Magician Impossible, some of the tricks he does could only be possible if the people around him are in on it.
