9 Secrets of Famous Magic Tricks That Will Impress Even the Most Skeptical Audiences

8. Run over by a truck

The magician (or, in this case, his attractive assistant) lies down and gets ready to have a huge truck run over him or her. It actually does run them over, but magically no one gets hurt.

How it’s done: When performing this trick, the magician relies completely on the laws of physics.
