Nicolas Luisetti and John Paul Olhaberry stunned onlookers by appearing to levitate in the air for over 3 hours.

The event was staged at the Chilean capital Santiago to mark the country's 200th anniversary, crowds gathered below to try and figure out just how the twins had managed to pull off the impressive feat.



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

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

The most astounding thing is that there are actually people out there who believe this stuff. I've actually read threads on other boards with literally hundreds of posts defending Criss Angel's tricks as being real. It would be funny if it weren't so sad.

How did they get up and how did they get down? That would tell us everything.

How did they get up and how did they get down? That would tell us everything. Exactly. Maybe they just hung around until all the people had gone home. I for one would have wanted to shake their hand afterwards, (the erect one).

Even if the levitation part is fake, standing around for that long is a feat unto itself.

How did they get up and how did they get down? That would tell us everything. Yeah I would have liked to seen video of them going up and down. Now that would be more remarkable. But even that can be explained by cables. I think it is the old Yogi trick as well. You will notice that their arms do not move from the solid structure and that they limit any movement. Their feet are stiff as well. How can they call this a levitation record? They weren't really levitating.

*cackles* But how many of us watched it to the end? We all want to believe. But I thought the pretty balloons were reward enough!

The most funny thing is that this is a re-post, of the EXACT same trick, just in a different time and place, which is only half the "fun factor" for the audience... Both here at UM and in Chili... I mean the last one was of the exact same thing, they even showed him getting down, he had to take off his jacket to take off the contraption, as you could see, they were both waring jackets/sweaters... HOW? I ask, please, HOW? How do these people have their names forever cast into the country of Chili? They are now, not only famous, but also holding some kind of record for levitating for 200 minutes... [More]
