Puppies In the Mail? Insects In iPhones? truTV's Michael Carbonaro Isn't April Foolin' Around

A puppy mailed in a flat envelope? Shoelaces that magically retie themselves? Levitating lattes?!

It may be April Fools’ Day, but the trickery on display in the exclusive first trailer for truTV’s The Carbonaro Effect is quite real. And really fun.

Premiering Thursday, May 15, the hidden-camera show features magician/trickster Michael Carbonaro, whose has great fun interacting with the marks who lay witness to his illusions. Press PLAY to get a taste for the good-natured trickery on hand.

    Oh my gosh that trailer was great! The look on that woman’s face when he pulled that little puppy out of the envelope, was priceless.

    NBC tried this years ago with T.H.E.M (Totally Hidden Extreme Magic).

    This looks good, but for the love of god, TruTV, make sure he doesn’t abuse animals if he ends up using them like Steve-o ended up doing on Killer Karaoke. (He dumped live snakes and alligators into freezing water — unacceptable!)
