In an attempt to scare passing pedestrians, magician Andy Gross created the 'Split Man' stunt. Gross made it look like he split himself in half at the waist in order to horrify spectators. As Gross walked around, he managed to terrify people into running away while screaming. The magician hid behind corners and jumped out at people in order to shock them. In addition, the bisected man ran after people as they attempted to flee.
The Split Man stunt was performed in order to promote Gross's upcoming Las Vegas magic show. Gross is a performing comedian, magician and ventriloquist. The prank was filmed and then placed online to raise awareness for Gross's performances. His newest shoe will be entitled "MindBoggling" where he will be hosting shows in performing arts theaters.
