Not only is Santa real, but in a shocking twist that should scare the hell out of kids everywhere, he’s Dan Sperry. To prove it, Dan dressed up as the most disturbing St. Nick since the original Silent Night, Deadly Night, hit the mall and read people’s minds to determine their Christmas wishes. Be warned: Dan behaved himself but people want some messed up, and potentially offensive, gifts this year!

Sure, it is fun to watch Dan Sperry mess with German talk show hosts or wretch over vegemite (which is gross), but don’t forget the guy does a legit stage show, too. Just to remind you, Dan posted this older video of his dove act.

This is your last warning: this video is not safe for work due to language!
Dan Sperry put a couple of new videos up a few days ago, but, thanks to our own experiences with vegemite, this non-magic one is our favorite. Sorry Australia, we know you love it but that stuff is nasty! Check out Dan’s other videos on his official YouTube channel.

Dan Sperry is still busy scaring the crap out of Europe but he has had time to post a few new videos. In addition to the iPad trick running above, he also recently posted a backstage coffee trick video.

The Illusionists are in Germany so Dan Sperry and Kevin James visited Guten Morgen Deutschland (Good Morning Germany… iTricks remembers the lessons of Frau Haus’ classroom two plus decades ago). If you listen hard, you can hear Dan’s English responses. There isn’t much talk, though, before the fiendish Mr. Sperry performs a little magic and at the end proves the naiveté of morning talk show hosts across the world.

The Mail Online spoke to Andrew Brasso of The Illusionists in preparation of the tour’s visit to the United Kingdom. He recounts a tense entry into Singapore. It is illegal to bring handcuffs onto the island, so he was surrounded by police and (ironically) handcuffed when his props were discovered. Luckily, though, he was recognized from The Illusionists tour poster and eventually let go. Brasso also explains why he got interested in escapology. The Mail also spoke with Philip Escoffey, the only British member of the tour, and Anti-Conjuror Dan Sperry.
