People always joke about magicians having no friends, which according to Davids Blaine and Copperfield isn't true at all, but maybe some magicians purposely avoid making friends so their friends don't reveal the secrets behind their tricks.
The magician in this video is Chinese internet star A Gan, and for some reason he doesn't mind bringing his assistant/buddy along with him everywhere he goes even though his friend keeps revealing all of his secrets.
They're like a vaudeville duo for the 21st century combined with a primer on how many basic magic tricks actually work, and despite his deadpan demeanor A Gan's friend brings a fun energy to these videos that would be otherwise absent. Plus he's keeping A Gan humble!
