Magic Apple iPad: The Best Christmas Gift Ever [Video]

iSimon, known for using the beloved iPad in all kinds of fun magic tricks and shows, shot in new video.

Simon Pierro, magician better known as iSimon, combines traditional sleight-of-hand with his prop of choice, an iPad.

He has already been featured in such Apple’s videos as teasing the introduction of the iPad 3, revealing a video preview of a “beta version of iOS 5.”

iSimon is well-known for entertaining people with a bit of digital magic involving a couple of cats, and dazzling us with a bit of Halloween magic, Mashable reports.

This time the magician is back commemorating the Christmas season of Advent with his magical APPvent Calendar.

He’s been creating a separate video for each day of this month, and he reveals that he plans to release one each day until Christmas Eve.

Here we present a special version of all those videos, edited into one extravaganza showing all 24 tricks.

The video uploaded to YouTube has already received plenty of wow reviews.

“You’re so clever. Great work!” one YouTube user wrote with another saying: “Loved these :) Thank you so much.”

By the way, this is the second time ‘magician’ news surfaced this week.

Sean Emory, from Nashville, Tennessee, asked his long-time girlfriend, Andrea Leachman, to capture him performing some sleight of hand.

In the clip titled ‘sean + andrea + magical proposal’ posted last week Emory, 24, explains: “We’re here on a covert operation. She’s the girl of my dreams and we’ve been together for about five years.”

He goes on, adding: “She thinks we’re filming a magic video but in reality she’s going to be filming me proposing to her without realizing.”

Then a young man calls his girlfriend to ask her to meet him at a location on the Western Kentucky University campus, The Daily Mail reports.

When Andrea arrives she begins filming, and Sean starts talking about alchemy to his fans.

As he grabs a rock, leaf and some dirt he says: “See, what alchemists used to do, they would take natural elements and they’d combine them, you know, trying to find the elixir of life, which means you’ll live forever.”

He continues: “Then they’d take these metals and turn them into something really special.”

Suddenly the magician crouches down and after a few moments opens his hand to reveal a sparkling diamond ring.

“Andrea, will you marry me, please?” he asks the girl, who he has been dating for five years, to which she replies ‘yes’.

The soon-to-be-married, both wearing matching beanie hats are then seen embracing. The duo’s friend, David Altizer, was hidden several feet away and captured the moment.

The YouTube video showing the 10th December proposal, posted last Friday has already scored more than 30,000 hits.

Emory told reporters: “We will be getting married pretty soon actually.  We are looking at possibly March or April.”

“David Altizer will be filming the wedding, and we are already planning and creating an original illusion to perform together that we hope will leave people breathless,” he added.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama and the first lady has already wished everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, and thanked our brave troops and their families for their service.
