Magician’s split-man prank is half frightful and all hilarious

The man sawed in half is the go-to trick of every hokey carnival magician, but it’s not often you see it taken out for a walk. So you can imagine the reactions of people seeing Andy Gross approaching them in two pieces (with the requisite scary growl) might run the gamut from sheer terror to mild amusement to doubling over in laughter. Now, we’d have added some fake blood and loose innards atop the legs to give it a more realistic look, but it seems to generate enough fright as it is, particularly in the twosome that sped off in their car after saying, “That is so not cool.” Oh, but they’re so wrong.
