David Copperfield, step aside. This kid is the only magician we have any interest in.

By the looks of it, this kid isn't quite on his way to a residency in Vegas, but he certainly has the enthusiasm and commitment to his craft required to get there.

We are currently engaged in a raging internal debate about what makes our hearts soar more: the fact that his hands are so tiny he clearly doesn't have a hope at pulling this trick off; his beyond-cute reaction to thinking he completely fooled his dad; or the fact that his dad let him believe he had been fooled and mirrored his son's level of excitement. We're in a puddle of happy tears over here. Obviously not from watching this video — we're peeling onions, and there's something in our eyes.
