"Every once in a while, what we think is magic is the real deal hiding behind a $50 trick."
The Movie Illusion: A paper flower suddenly catches fire and transforms into a real rose.
Performed By: A thoroughly unconvincing Nicolas Cage.
How Did They Do That? The real flower is hidden within the fake one, which is made out of flash paper (a prop that burns instantly with a bright flash and leaves no trace behind). Then it’s just a case of secretly lighting it.
