If you can watch this video only once you will have achieved something I didn’t think was possible.

  • Uncle David

    I got it (after 8 views). Solved it. Very fascinating, though.

  • Uncle David

    I know exactly how this works.

  • Uncle David

    If you wanna know. . . just ask me. . .

  • Uncle David

    Ok fine. . . I know it’s killing you, so I’ll tell ya. . .

  • Uncle David

    . . . if you look closely at the first frame and hit “pause”, you’ll clearly see that one of the stones in the jar is actually a pellet of “disappearing chipmunk dust” that quickly explodes when the jar is turned over and makes the chipmunk invisible. You can purchase these “disappearing chipmunk dust” pellets at any REI store or online, but be careful, I think these pellets have a very short shelf life.

    . . . now ya know. . .

      sadly, those “pellets”, I think are actually pistachios, don’t you?

    And here I thought he jumped to the right before it flipped it. but then I rewatched it. David is right.

    Once again I wish we had an REI store close by! :-(
