Update May 14, 2010! Thanks to Darren Taylor, we've finally gotten a translation of this scam artist! Those that visited before might notice parts 3-6 are now gone. These seemed to confuse a LOT of the viewers, so I got rid of them. unfortunately one of these had the part where they exposed the bowl of water being pulled by magnets! :( (link to original unedited videos below!) If you were to watch the original clip, when she provides her own bowl without magnets in it, he fails to move it! (see link to videos below, at njip/magnify.net and watch first clip from 14:15-18:00 to see the bowls)
This is the final part of the CCTV show exposing a fraud and catching him in the act of cheating.
Some things about part 1: a)it's pretty obvious something from under the cloth pushes up on the brick causing it to fall over
b)The guy in the tan shirt near the middle is Sima Nan... famous for offering a 1Million Yuan prize for anyone who can prove they have real powers. He's exposed many dozens and travels China replicating the QiGong "masters" tricks right after demonstrations.
c)The guy near the end is a popular magician. He is watching the video, and explaining to the girl what to watch for and how the trick might have been done, and how to test it.

I'm tired of idiots complaining that they watched all six parts and fail to see how he was completely debunked. Let's rehearse the facts that are CLEARLY seen:
1)They show indents in the table cloth, then show something pokes up through the cloth to topple the bricks. When she moves the bricks, he fails to topple them, and then tries to re-position the bricks over his indents. (at :10 of the first video, you can CLEARLY see the table cloth poking up causing the brick to fall)
2)They show there are magnets hidden inside the table and explain a pulley system. When she provides her own bowl (without magnets hidden in the base), he fails to move it.
3)They show weights sewn into the cloth covering the jar. They explain springs or something is triggered to shatter the jar and the weight keeps the jar from flying. When she provides her own jar and cloth, he fails to shatter it.
100% debunking. Sorry, i accidentally deleted the part that showed them debunking the magnets and bowls bullshit. Here's a link to the original unedited videos: http://ijnp.magnify.net/
