A ‘magician’ has stunned onlookers with his amazing stunt after he sat on an invisible chair for hours.

A trickster bewilders unsuspecting members of the public by appearing to sit down on thin air in this brilliant viral clip.
Magician and YouTube prankster Julien Dauphin confounded passersby with his hilarious “invisible chair” trick, which has become a hit online since a video of the stunt was posted over the weekend.
Walking down the street with a newspaper, Julien suddenly stops, bends his legs and sits back. But instead of landing flat on his back, Julien remains sat comfortably upright, despite there being nothing below to support him.
While Julien nonchalantly catches up on the news, passersby are unable to believe their eyes.
Cyclists, pedestrians and a running club are all bemused by what they see, repeatedly looking over their shoulders at the surreal spectacle.
One woman stops and asks him: “How do you sit like that?” before a cyclist appears to turn their head for a little too long as the clip ends with a comic crash sound.
The video has racked up more than 415,000 times on Facebook and 17,000 times on YouTube.
