A Royal Enfield pulls off the best magic trick ever

It's the oldest magic trick in the world, but can you do it on a motorcycle?
"Enfield Trick" has been on YouTube for years, but it's still funny. In fact, I guarantee you, it gets funnier every time you watch it.

Posted by Randall Haines, "Enfield Trick" is a spoof on an advertisement for a BMW motorcycle. Of course, you have to watch the BMW advert first, to appreciate how much better the Royal Enfield version is.

While you watch, notice how self-congratulatory the BMW ad is. Notice its pristine setting. Notice the presence of expensive props and a full production crew. Whatever else you can say about it, it contains no real surprises.

OK, but can you do it on a Royal Enfield Bullet?
On the other hand, you don't know what the hell is going to happen when the Royal Enfield Bullet is called on to perform the same trick.

And I am certainly not going to tell you in advance.

Watch the videos.

  1. The suspense on the Enfield ad was overwhelming, but you had to figure they would pillory the arrogant BMW folks.

  2. The Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters" concluded that BMW faked it. See their video attempt to recreate the ad.

  3. Proper table and the bullet might just have done it. Any fool can go fast, style, that takes skill
