A pair of Chilean twins have broken the world levitation record by hovering above the ground for an extraordinary 200 minutes.

Nicolas Luisetti and John Paul Olhaberry staged the event in Chile's capital Santiago to mark the country's 200th anniversary.

The magic twins stunned thousands of passers-by as they floated above the city's streets for over eight hours.

It's a super strong structure extending from their trainers, up their backs and along their sleeves. Clever trick though.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

What's so clever about it?

We are the pilgrims, master. We shall go
  always a little further, it may be
beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow,
across that angry or that glimmering sea.

Would have been more impressive if they had taken there hands off the pole structure ;)

Where it states "For official use only" - gently rub a white wax candle over the area indicated.

meh

I'd only be a "stunned onlooker" if they were:
1) nowhere near any structure
2) naked
3) juggling live grenades

Took me about a second to figure out how they did it, was a bit tired so wasn't thinking that fast.
So was a very poor trick I would say.

their hand held on the pole is to prevent them from swaying.
take a close look at their legs. it must be tiring to hold it in that pose for 200 minutes
