It’s the Magical night that Jimmy Fallon has nothing more to say, so when illusionist David Blaine left the late night TV host gobsmacked it’s little wonder the internet went crazy over the footage.
It all began simply enough with a series of card tricks. But if guest stars, American hip-hop group The Roots, had thought they had seen those tricks all before, they quickly thought again.
Even a skeptical Tariq Luqmaan Trotter, better known as The Roots singer Black Thoughts, was blown away when he was made part of the trick.
The Roots frontman couldn’t deny the magic of the moment when cards invisibly shot from one deck held by Blaine to a stack of 10 being held by him against his heart: “Yo I felt something!”
Jimmy Fallon spent the segment repeating over and over again: “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh.”
But it was the final illusion that had The Tonight Show’s live audience practically screaming.
