An illusionist smoothly transformed himself into several everyday objects in a mesmerising video collection of his latest tricks.
Kevin Parry, from Ontario, Canada, shared a round-up of his illusions on social media, with the video entitled: ‘A collection of me turning into random objects.’
In the clip, animator Parry is seen transforming into balloons, a pumpkin and even a banana using clever editing and stop-motion techniques.
One of the tricks shows the self-proclaimed ‘video wizard’ sat at his dining room table, before slamming forward and turning into a pile of ice at impact.
In another, he disappears in place of a flame when he sneezes.
