Man’s Totally Outrageous Thumb Tricks Test the Limits of What’s Real

Subscribe to TheFW on

The thumb trick as you know it is new and improved and totally freaky.

Watch as this guy shows off some high-level, extra credit-quality tricks in which he makes his thumb disappear, while also making it look like he’s removing a few other digits.

We all remember this thumb trick, right? The first time we saw it we were at some family gathering and an uncle thought he’d be the cool uncle by sitting us down and terrifying our six-year-old mind by extracting his thumb. We couldn’t figure it out — one second it’s there, the next it’s gone. There was no blood. What kind of black magic sorcery was this?

Eventually, we all learned the trick and we discovered there was no man behind the curtain pulling the strings.

But this…this is the magic trick done right for 2017. It’s a whole new take on what has become a staple — a run-of-the-mill ruse that has gotten stale. We don’t expect any cool uncles to pull this off anytime soon, but it’s nice to know someone can do it.
