The videos on the YouTube channel of Justin Willman and Jillian Sipkins are going completely viral on Friday, September 11. That’s because in the video during the magnetic couple’s first wedding dance, Jillian appears to “put a spell on” Justin and help him to lean back and levitate. The real question is: How did Justin float like that?
First up, watch the video.
That video, titled “Bride puts a spell on her groom during first dance,” has gained 67,623 views in 23 hours since it was uploaded to YouTube. Most folks are probably wondering how the couple pulled off such a magical feat. It doesn’t appear that Justin has any kind of planks coming up out of the ground that slide up his pant legs in order to support him. The rug on the ground doesn’t appear to have any wrinkles or holes in it that would mean planks have arisen out of the ground, which is how some magicians pull off the same trick.
Lots of folks are commenting on how excited Justin’s father-in-law appears in the background, as seen in the following photo from Imgur of the magical moment.
Apparently, it isn’t the couple’s first time going viral. The hilarious NSFW video titled “Justin & Jill’s Drunk History” (warning: some viewers might find the language offensive) appeared prior to the new wedding video. That drunk history video gained 1,728,255 views in three days.
“Magician Justin Willman gets levitated by his photographer bride Jillian Sipkins in their first dance on Sept. 6, 2015 in Malibu, California.”
As reported by the Huffington Post, Justin and Jill’s wedding photo gained more than 1.8 million views on Imgur.
The comments on YouTube praise everything from Jill’s dress to Justin’s father-in-law’s excitement. Differing publications call the excited man in the background Justin’s father-in-law, but Justin himself calls the man his dad on Instagram.
Never mind the magic.. THAT DRESS!!! <3
That one gentleman in the back was hyped as f***.
Willman is up to more than 20,000 followers on his Instagram page, where he has posted video of the viral incident. The whole buzz about the videos are no doubt giving a big boost to both Justin and Jill’s careers.
Although most magicians never tell how their tricks are performed, here’s hoping Justin spills the beans on whether it was via strings or planks or some other magic that helped his bride put a spell on him.
