...careful observation will reveal a camera cut between Andersen’s firing and the close-up of the arrow supposedly splitting

One advantage of being grotesquely cynical is that I don't spend much time reading about stuff like this. I did enjoy the GeekDad deconstruction of the bogus narration. Unfortunately this will never be linked as much as the potentially fake original because it has text instead of a video. Also, most people don't really want to know how "magic" works. They want to feel like children again. I think that's mostly O.K.
