Nashville Street Magician Goes Viral With Insane Floating Cigarette Trick

What the hell?

If you’ve ever been to downtown Nashville, or really any city for that matter, there’s always going to be a surplus of street performers. Musicians, magicians, acrobats, a guy that will swallow a snake and pull it out of his nose for a quarter… whatever catches your attention, you can find it.

This street magician (Ryan Shadow) in downtown Nashville caught the attention of over 4 million people on Twitter recently with his floating cigarette trick. Conventional wisdom says there is some kind of string or something, but I sure as shit can’t see one. I want an explanation on this witchcraft immediately and Twitter has failed to deliver. I think we’re going to need to bring in Penn and Teller for this one.

The dark arts are alive and well in Nashville.
