While Sky news reporter Ashish Joshi was doing a report on British Prime Minister David Cameron being at odds with some members of Parliament over controversial actions by the National Health Service, two young magicians start performing behind him.
The two young men, Richard Young and Sam Strange, from the YouTube channel Young & Strange, perform the trick “shrinking man” while the serious report is being conducted. It’s a pretty impressive trick.
Watch these young magicians perform their trick:
But don’t worry, this wasn’t a real news report, as this would never be allowed.
The reporter, Ashish Joshi, was in on the trick too to help the young magicians out, in what turned out to be a popular stunt.
We’d like to clarify that the Ashish Joshi video with the magicians in the background is not a Sky News report
