The case of the vanishing cigarette, thanks to a clever street magician

This old street performer has an intriguing and rather confusing trick for his patrons on the street. Lifting the tail of one gentleman’s shirt, he pokes a depression into the fabric, and then shoves his lit cigarette into the depression with his fingers, until it vanishes entirely.

It would be natural to expect the man’s shirt to have a burn mark at the very least—but lo and behold, there is no burn mark, and no trace of the cigarette either.

Now how the old man did it, that’s his secret, and the performance is so impressive that this flabbergasted gentleman can’t help but give him a dollar.

Even more intriguing is the second trick he does, this time with liquid. How he manages to pull off that feat is even more baffling!
