Anyone who watched this season of Britain’s Got Talent would have been baffled by Stevie Starr aka The Regurgitator. Well, I’ve seen how he does it.
Warning: Read on only if you want to spoil the magic of it.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you because after you know how it is done, the act is not amazing anymore.
So how does he do it? Well I figured it out from the following video:
Did you see it? Watch closely from 1:26 to 1:34. Saw it?
Here’s a breakdown of what happens:
- 1:26 – He puts down the light bulb
- 1:30 – He brings up the coin
- 1:33 – Finally he brings up the light bulb again
Still didn’t see it? @1:29 the bulb should be in his stomach, but you see it when he puts his special ‘sound effect’. Check the image, the bulb is still there in his mouth – you can clearly see it. He keeps it in the back of the mouth. When ‘swallowing’ he uses his tongue to make it look like he really swallowed it.
I must say he is really brilliant at what he does. Unfortunately the camera was in the wrong position in this video revealing his secret.
Well there you go. What did you think of Stevie Starr and his act? Do you agree with this explanation? Leave a comment.
