Chilean magicians and stunning levitation record

On the occasion of Chile’s 200th anniversary, magic twins Nicolas Luisetti and John Paul Olhaberry broke the world levitation record by hovering above the ground within 200 minutes. Their amazing performance occurred at Santiago, the capital of Chile. Thousands of people were shocked while witnessing them levitate seven meters above the street for over 8 hours. Broadcast on a big screen, the event reportedly caused heavy traffic jam. Viewers have given a variety of hypotheses to explain this incredible feat. They think that Nicolas Luisetti and John Paul Olhaberry used some sort of iron bar through their clothing and attached to the pole. However, the twin’s only visible support obviously was a post on which they placed one hand. Nicolas Luisetti and John Paul Olhaberry are regarded to be the most famous magicians in Chile. Having appeared many times on TV, they perform stunning levitation feats which are similar to those of U.S. magician David Blane.
