How did a toy car magically appear behind these two pieces of paper?

In this illusion, a toy car seemingly appears from no where. How is that possible? Well, the car was always there. Really. It's a simple but masterful trick, the toy car is programmed to travel along a designated route while the red cards are shown off as a distraction. As one card is shown to reveal nothing behind it, the other card is covering the moving toy car. What you're seeing is what you're allowed to see.


Quirkology wrinkles your brain in this latest illusion video. Even after you watch it a few times, you still might be confused. Magic is always in the camera angles!
