World Record Illusionists to Teleport Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI for Next Mega Illusion
Singapore – “Most Original Illusionists” 2009 Merlin Award winners and current world record holders for “Most Number of Illusions Performed in 5 Minutes”, J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ Ning, will be attempting their biggest teleportation mega illusion ever in a few weeks by teleporting a full-sized car from one location to another.
This latest mega illusion is set to take place on 22 Aug 2009, Sat at 6pm as the grand finale to The Straits Times 164th anniversary event organized by Singapore Press Holdings.
The exact location of this event will only be revealed in The Straits Times (newspaper ad) on 22 Aug 2009.
Entitled “Destination X”, J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ will try to teleport a 1.4 ton Volkswagen Golf 1.4 TSI in 8.5 seconds, in front of an expected turnout of 5000 people.
The car will be teleported from one location to another that is marked with a large ‘X” on the ground. A ring of close-up witnesses will surround this “Destination X”.
The exact location of the teleportation destination will only be made known to spectators upon their arrival at the event ground.
J C & Ning have spent two years designing the illusion ever since Volkswagen first suggested the idea to them in 2007.
“This is going to be our most challenging teleportation mega illusion ever! Previously, we have teleported ourselves as well as laymen. But, this is the first time we are teleporting an inanimate object of this size. It is going to be wicked!” says ‘Magic Babe’ Ning.
J C Sum states: “For the past 2 years, we have been developing all kinds of teleportation illusions ever since I teleported 50 storeys in 5 seconds, many by request of corporate clients. “Destination X” will employ 7 different illusion techniques to create one elaborate method to achieve the teleportation of the car in front of a live audience.”
