I'm sure we've all seen a military parachutist drop in to a stadium with the game ball. We know what it looks like from the stadium looking up. Here's what it looks like for the parachutist coming down.

Up on the hill from B-way was Pipers Alley, there you could see folks who had "made it". The music wasn't any better and the beer cost 5 times as much.

They do a great job but I don't see anything mysterious.

At the beginning, she's in the box on the easel. When he puts the second picture on the floor she slips down, then back up.

Between 2:55 and 2:59 she switches places with the man.

Him:

When he throws down the red sheet, the gear is in it.

Still, it's well done, and I had to watch it a few times to figure it out.
