That's a cool magic video. But I smell a hoax. The early stuff looks real enough, but for the long French baguette that he pulls from his hand from a bit of dough, it's almost definitely computer animation.

I'm talking about a bit after the 4 minute mark in the video. What gives it away that it's probably not real.....look at the bottom side of the baguette. The shading of it is really weird.

There's this greenish, brownish glow that doesn't look natural. Esp weird is at the very edge running along the very bottom side (basically a line), there's a slightly brighter shading...why would there be a brighter shading at the very edge. Definitely not natural....looks more like an artifact of computer graphics.
