Kid Magician Aidan McCann Stuns Ellen with an Invisible Card Trick


Aidan McCann, how are you? Great. Thank you for inviting me again. Oh. Thanks. I know, it’s a
cute accent, right? So we surprised you with a
video message from Shin Lim last time you were here. And then you went to
Vegas to meet him, right? Yeah. How was that? That was great. There are huge lights
all the time in Vegas– huge. Right. And in The Mirage
where we were staying, there was a huge pool in
the back that was good. It was very hot. Yeah. It’s hot in Vegas and
everything there is huge– everything. Did he teach you anything? He– Did he show you a trick? He gave me– yeah,
he showed me a trick and he gave me a few tips. Oh good. All right. Well, what are you
doing for us today? Because I love magic. I’m doing a card trick, OK? But it’s something you’ve
probably never heard of. It’s an invisible deck
of cards, Ellen, OK? Oh really? Right here. So if you want to catch it. Oh. You dropped it, but
luckily I brought two. OK. [LAUGHTER] There you go. Thank you. Now, if you want to start
by shuffling the deck, you might want– Is it in the pack? Should I take it
out of the pack? Oh yeah, actually take it out. OK. You outsmarted me. You can just place
the packet there– That plastic thing is still on. Just– [LAUGHTER] All right. All right. Nice? [LAUGHTER] Perfect. I just dropped one. There we go. When you’re ready, you
can go through the deck and take out one card. I will not look. [LAUGHTER] OK. You can show everybody. OK. [LAUGHTER] It’s this one, everybody. I showed them. Great, you can just place
it down onto the table. OK. All right. Perfect where I can’t see it. I’ll put it right there. OK. Now, you can pick it
back up and place it back into the deck– but
the opposite way, OK? OK. So it’s facing the
other way from the pack. Yes, I understand. Opposite. OK. There we go. All right, now if you want
to take that and place it back into its box. Oh OK. Put the box back. OK. Perfect. If I can take it back. I put it down there. OK. Thank you. All right, now watch– this
is like the real magic, Ellen. Watch if I take it and
place it down and snap, it becomes a visible deck. Oh it’s back as a
visible deck of cards. Yes. Now, Ellen, for the first time,
tell me what your card was. Six of hearts. The six of hearts. You could have chosen any card. Yes. But you chose the six of hearts. I did. All right. Well, if we go through
the deck, one card is faced the other way
just like you had it. Your card was the six of hearts. Yes. Six of hearts. What? [APPLAUSE] That literally just came
to my mind– six of hearts. That’s crazy. Thank you. So I met Shin Lim and he
gave me a huge box of merch. And he also gave me
a deck of cards– Shin Lim cards. I thought I had to do a trick
with his deck of cards here. OK. So for this trick, I’m going
to take out the ace of hearts and the ace of spades. OK. So duh duh duh duh– Still can’t believe you
just had the six of hearts. Ace of hearts and the ace
of spades just like that. And all the other cards
are all different. OK. Now what I’m going
to do is I’m going to get you to choose
one– so the ace of hearts or the ace of spades. All right, I’ll choose one. OK what one? Oh, you want me to tell you? Yes. Ace of hearts. The ace of hearts. OK. Now, if you can hold the ace of
hearts just like that for me. OK. Perfect. And the ace of spades– and the ace of spades
will now be my card, OK? OK. So the ace of spades,
the ace of hearts, right? Right. Right. Perfect. Now, I’m going to take the
ace of spades and watch. If I hit it a few times– if you can hold that. Now do you think that
they’ve switched? Without looking, tell me. Do you think now that’s
the ace of hearts and that’s the ace of spades? Well, because you’re a
magician, I’m going to say, yes. Yeah, you think so? Yeah. You are wrong. You still have
the ace of hearts. I got you there, Ellen. [LAUGHTER] Watch. We’ll try one more time. The ace of hearts– I have the ace of hearts,
you have the ace of spades. Now if you can hold that, do you
think that’s the ace of spades and that’s the ace of hearts? Well, I don’t know anymore. [LAUGHTER] Would you be impressed
if they switched? I sure would. OK. I don’t want to impress
you, I want to amaze you. Take a look at the cards. [APPLAUSE] You did amaze me. We’re going to take a break. Aidan’s going to come back
a little later in the show and do another trick for us. We’ll be right back. All right, you have
another trick for us. Yes. OK. So right here, all the
cards are all different. Uh huh. Great. Now, when I went
to Vegas, I learned to shuffle exactly for Vegas. And I actually called it
the Vegas shuffle, OK? That’s quite cool, right? Sure is. Yeah? OK. But the thing is– this the bad thing, you see– I’m not allowed, you see, in
casinos for another 11 years. So that’s a shame I can’t do
that shuffle for the casinos. But anyway, if I can just get
you to tell me when to stop, Ellen. Stop. Here, are you sure? Yeah. OK, perfect. OK. You can take that card
and show everyone. OK. Look. Ready? OK. Yep. Great, you can just place it
back in the pack so I cannot look. OK. Perfect. Now, you have your card in mind? I do. Everyone knows it. Now, I actually made this
prediction all the way from Ireland, OK? So that makes this
trick even special. And many good tricks have
a great prediction, OK? Yes. I made a banner, which
is a big prediction. It sure is. That’s a commitment. Yeah. So right here it says,
your card is the, and I’m going to show you
your real card now, OK? Your card is the– are you ready? I am. Four of hearts. No! You’re kidding me. I came all the way from Ireland. [APPLAUSE] Just kidding, it’s
the seven of diamonds. Aidan, that’s amazing.
