Yeah, interesting. Reminded me I never found out about how he claimed to predict the lottery. The full follow-up episode is on Youtube now.

Don't get to excited, the follow up episode is a complete waste of time (especially considering how brilliant the live lottery thing was). I was really disappointed with that whole series.

The lottery trick was an obvious split-screen, but what threw me off was the camera shake so I doubted myself. That's the genius of the trick really. If you know that camera shake can be simulated it's a no-brainer.

The real test for the silly boards is if the participants just didn't look at the board I doubt it would land on a letter/number most of the time and it certainly wouldn't spell anything.

I guess it just annoyed me too much. The whole lottery thing was promoted with a clear I WILL TELL YOU HOW IT WAS DONE message, so I found the 'explanation' episode quite frustrating. The sofa trick didn't work on me, and I haven't met a single person who it did work on. The other two (psychic and casino) I thought were better, but they were both just tricks he has done before stretched out to fill an hour.
