Magicians Richard Young and Sam Strange of the comedy magic duo Young & Strange appear to have performed an impressive illusion behind a live Sky News broadcast. In the illusion, Young is seemingly crushed inside a box only to emerge fully sized and unharmed. The duo recently took the illusion to a number of television networks in the United Kingdom to try to land themselves a show.
Sky News denies that the report with journalist Ashish Joshi is an actual Sky News report, and tweets by Joshi himself seem to confirm that he was in on the stunt.

We’re in the Radio Times but we don’t have a TV show. Odd? http://t.co/pjo07sZ5nE — Young & Strange (@YoungandStrange) July 24, 2015
We’d like to clarify that the Ashish Joshi video with the magicians in the background is not a Sky News report — Sky News PR Team (@SkyNewsPR) July 24, 2015
