JC Sum, ‘Magic Babe’ Ning to vanish five spectators during next ‘mega-illusion’

November 7th, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General

We’ll start this post with a definition: Singapore magic duo JC Sum and “Magic Babe” Ning define a “mega-illusion” as “a large-scale illusion spectacle that involves a large or iconic object or venue and/or covers a large area or distance.” It’s also important that it be performed live for an audience in an uncontrolled environment, they say.

A planned illusion for Dec. 12 in Singapore seems to meet that definition.

As much as we love good close-up magic, we are floored by ambitious, huge illusions, and this one qualifies: In “The Aerial Exit,” the pair will take five people from the audience, hoist them 20 feet in the air and vanish them. The illusion is planned for 5 p.m. Singapore time on Dec. 12 as part of the Explore Singapore 2010 campaign.

This will be the pair’s eighth mega-illusion, and it will be different from others they have performed: “The illusion methodology and techniques employed in this mega illusion are completely different from our previous stunts,” Sum said in a press release. “The fact that we are attempting the illusion with five untrained people from the general public makes it even more challenging.”

We can’t wait to see how it goes. Here’s the trailer for the attempt:
