It was indeed called as "Pinoy pride to the max" when Atty. Romulo Macalinlang becomes the new greatest magician. Previous magicians such as David Copperfield, David Blaine and Criss Angel were all defeated by Atty. Macalinlang's powers. The other three merely used sleight of hand tricks or visual illusions. Atty. Macalinlang had done the unthinkable.
Ripley's Believe It or Not could not believe the magical stunt done by Atty. Macalinlang. One of most famous tricks is called the wet the paper trick. It was proven by experts that he got paper wet and for four months - the paper is still wet. It was amazing magic trick that wowed Copperfield, Blaine and Angel out of their seats. Another involved helping Narco Alcos escape his jail in Dasmarinas, Cavite in a puff of smoke along with allowing magical WiFi and smartphones to get in and out of the PNP Custodial Center.
For such magical feats, Atty. Macalinlang is now named the World's Greatest Magician. As said, every magician in the world just uses well-prepared illusions to amaze the audiences. They would later explain how they did the stunts and make it look real. In the case of Macalinlang - to see is to believe as there are no strings attached, no hidden doors and it is real magic.
