We’ve seen some cool Halloween costumes, but nothing compares to the Head Drop Illusion.

Now, we’d like to think the key to the trick is pretty simple, but something tells us it’s vastly more complicated than we could possibly envision.  We can’t say for sure, but it appears as though the jacket, which is rigidly structured, has enough space for Rich Ferguson to bend down in, thus making it appear as though his head has fallen off.   Nevertheless, that’s complete conjecture on our behalf, and we’re confident that it took much more than rigging a trench coat with some wires and cardboard.

The video was created to promote the book “Tricks to Pick Up Chicks”.   You can buy it on Amazon for about $19.
