Those of you who still want to believe in Uri Geller’s psychic powers should look away now. In this clip, the famous Canadian skeptic, James Randi exposes Uri’s methods and shows you how to repeat some of his most famous tricks such as the bending of a key or spoon.
The clip climaxes with Uri’s appearance on the Tonight Show, where they surprise him with an array of objects on which to demonstrate his powers. Unfortunately for Uri, he was not aware of these in advance and was therefore unable to prepare them. His response, “my powers feel weak tonight”.
Of course, this did little to dent Uri’s career and decades on we still see him on TV, although more often now as an unofficial “friend” spokesman for Michael Jackson.
