While the show has the word magic in the title, this element of the programme is a lot more Derren Brown than David Copperfield, incorporating elements more like a social experiment into the piece.
It began with an advertising call going out on Craigslist asking for people to join a flash mob to help convince a person they'd turned completely invisible.
The idea is as simple as you might think - just pretend they're not there, but on a grand scale.
Then, they simply laid in wait for an unsuspecting mug to come along to be drawn in by Justin Willman's 'magic show'.
Eventually, along came Jonathan, the unlucky sod.
First, Jonathan had to be convinced that he was going to be turned invisible. They had another 'subject' sit on a chair, get covered with a blanket and disappear, but he was in on the entire thing.
In that very moment Jonathan became 'a believer' - you'd only have had to look at his face to know he was absolutely s***ting himself for what came next.
"You ready?" Willman asked him, his response: "No."
Well, you can't fault his honesty.
When the blanket was pulled off him you could see he was panicked - where would he go? Would Willman be able to reverse this whole thing? Maybe that was something he should have checked first.
The audience went wild and it was believable - for Jonathan at least anyway. Then Justin Willman had both the guy who was in on the joke and Jonathan himself to grab hold of a can to prove they were 'still there'.
Justin then got a 'phone call' and walked away. That's when a gullible Jonathan really started to ease into his role.
As a girl stood behind him posing, he himself made a hand gesture - believing that nobody else could see him. Which is hilarious in itself until the phone was turned around and a picture that was taken earlier showed a chair with no Jonathan...
He nearly fell off his chair in sheer panic. He was freaked out beyond belief.
However, he managed to compose himself and go off for a little wander, standing in front of people and waving himself around.
They can all see you, mate.
So, what's the moral of this story - never get sucked in to a social experiment in the middle of a park.
Oh, and don't believe you can be turned invisible just like that.
