VIDEO: This magic carpet prank will make you INSTANTLY want to buy a Swegway
Aladdin made his way through the streets of New York on what looked like a magic carpet...
Crafted by the always clever Casey Neistat, the "magic carpet" is in fact nothing more than a remote controlled, jerry-rigged item that we're all very familiar with. We don't want to ruin the surprise so, if you must know, the answer is here. And to add yet another tech twist, Neistat documented the whole thing using a drone.
The Aladdin character, dressed in full costume gear, whizzed through the streets of New York on Thursday, inspiring shocked gasps and even screams from many onlookers who believed the carpet might actually be levitating.
