JC Sum: Singapore's David Copperfield
If David Copperfield can do it, so can JC Sum. Recently, the local magician teleported himself from the ground to the roof of the 50 storey OUB Centre. From JC Sum:
The venue was Raffles Place, the heart of the business district in Singapore. The skyscraper that J C teleported was the iconic OUB Centre.I love magicians like David Copperfield and David Blaine. It's nice to have a home grown talent in this field. There's one illusion that I would like JC Sum to try. I remember David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty vanish once. Maybe JC Sum can do a similar vanishing trick on one of our tall buildings like the Swissotel or the Merlion at Sentosa.
J C vanished from a specially constructed elevated launch platform that was literally surrounded by thousands of spectators on street level.
Seconds later, he made an incredible reappearance on an identical teleportation platform on the 50-storey roof terrace of OUB Centre. This reappearance platform was surrounded by a committee of witnesses that included audience members and pre-selected individuals that included lawyers, media professionals and radio personalities.
The entire teleportation took less than 5 seconds to complete. That’s right; 50 floors of time and space covered in less than 5 seconds!
The illusion occurred in real time and the entire audience witnessed the illusion live, assisted by giant video screens throughout the venue.
