The lights in the theatre darken. Strange music begins to fill the air as fog rolls on to the stage. The magician picks up a thin board. An assistant holding an eerie green work light walks on stage.
The magician places the board in front of his body. The assistant walks behind the magician and raises the light. He lowers the light behind the magician and begins to push.
The green light begins to emerge from the center of the magician’s chest.
The assistant’s hand emerges holding the light. He pushes the light to one side passing through the magician’s body as if it were made of fog. The magician remains motionless.
The assistant pushes the light to other side passing through the magician’s spine.
The assistant slowly retracts the light letting it pass through the magician’s body. The magician lowers the board and reveals that his body is completely intact. The green light fades out.
