How do you trick someone into thinking they're invisible? It might seem impossible, but with a little bit of pre-planning and the right target, you might just be able to do it. And it might go something a bit like this:
In the video, a young guy is covered with a blanket which is then whisked away to a whole bunch of surprised cheers and shocked voices. The kid in question doesn't believe it at first - probably because he can still see himself - but then his brother has a picture taken next to him.
When the 'invisible' kid is shown the photo, you can see from his reaction that he's totally fallen for it and genuinely thinks that nobody can see him.
His family and friends get him to hold a bottle and the reaction is the same - they go ape-shift at the fact it seems to be just floating in front of them. That prompts the boy - for some reason - to pull his shorts down and moon everyone.
They then get him to hold a bin and the same thing happens - they go wild and the boy continues to think that nobody else can see him until they decide to cover him with the magic blanket and bring him back again.
Of course, they're just pretending. It's part of an elaborate, pre-planned prank, as the description in the video, which was filmed in Garden City, Kansas, explains: "My husband, friends and I all had seen a video about a guy that had been tricked into thinking he was invisible. One of our friends suggested that we should try it on her little brother because he, out of all of us, would be the one to fall for it.
"We planned it all this past Sunday in our basement while her little brother had gone upstairs to eat. We planned everything out and she took a picture beforehand of my husband's little brother next to the couch.
"We all planned to act surprised when my husband went and uncovered him with the blanket. At first, he didn't seem to fall for it until his sister went to take the picture of my brother in law next to the couch, when she showed the picture it only showed my brother in law and not her little brother.
"That's when he freaked out and started yelling and we pretended that we couldn't hear or see him. His sister would say aloud 'Sam if you can see us hold this.' Gatorade bottle and then she did the trash can.
"Every time he would hold something, we would yell and be surprised by pretending that the objects were floating and that we couldn't see him.
"After we supposedly brought him back we showed him the video and told him that we could actually see him the whole time and he told us that we were mean because we tricked him."
He's lucky he didn't pull his shorts all the way down. Or see his reflection in the giant TV screen mounted to wall...or realise that he could actually sill see himself...
