Eye trickery, PyeongChang 2018 teaser



Here’s a snowboarding trick we haven’t seen before. A promo for the 2018 Winter Olympics, Korean magician Yu Ho-Jin straps on his snowboard and rides through city streets alongside a bus – while hovering in mid-air.

As part of a troupe of magicians called The Illusionists, Yu has appeared on America’s Got Talent, wowing the judges with a close-up card trick. He’s made four videos to promote the Games, which open next February in South Korea.

Under the tagline “PyeongChang 2018: A Magical Experience”, other clips in the series feature Yu performing equally mindboggling tricks, all themed around winter sports – speed skating on water, levitating in mid-air after a ski jump, and donning a pair of cross-country skis to trek down the side of a skyscraper.
