With merely a simple sneeze, magician Rich Ferguson’s head falls off and freaks people out as they mind their own business in downtown San Luis Obispo. Although the trick is clearly not real, Ferguson’s video has so far garnered more than 3,000,000 views.
He talks about his illusion in the YouTube video’s description: “During the day, this is a great illusion, but during night and in a more vulnerable setting, this freaks people out BIG TIME! Having way too much fun this season with pranks and street magic! Watch out, we are coming for you;)”
How did Ferguson pull it off? We may never know, but it sure is one odd sight to see this Halloween season. So if you’re out visiting the Central Coast for Halloween, keep an eye out for this diabolical street magician.
