This mind-bending trick sent the internet into meltdown.

The magician dad sparked a frenzy debate after posting a clip of him ‘sawing’ his daughter in half.

US magician Justin Flom shared the trick on his Facebook page The Magic Show, which shows his daughter Haven sleeping peacefully on a coffee table while he attempts to perform his act.

“She’s still sleeping,” Justin can be heard saying as he places two Dr Seuss books through his daughter’s torso.

With over 145 million views, the trick has left Facebook watchers wondering exactly how the magician did it.

Despite his disclaimer that no baby was harmed during the act, some were outraged at Haven’s involvement in the clip.

“I can’t believe people are really out here cutting their babies in half just to go viral,” blasted one critic. “This is definitely child abuse.”

Another said, “What the F*** is entertainment coming to when they have to sink so low as to use a baby for ENTERTAINMENT????
There are some sick f****** that would be tempted to do the same thinking they know what to do. WISE UP WORLD BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE.”

  • Oh people really are funny. This is cute and amazing. NO CHILDREN WERE HURT INT HE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO.


  • It’s a magician’s trick people! Get over it. The child looks happy, so get down from your high horse.


  • His little girl certainly thought it was great fun helping Dad with his act. It’s a bit of fun. Get over it people.


  • Some people really can’t read sarcasm on the internet can they?


  • What a ridiculous thing to get upset about.


  • I don’t think it should be put on the internet. There is always a chance that some may try something similar
    It should also be labelled “do not try this at home”. Magic is not normally shown at close up as that


  • I get that it is a trick but still, a bit silly.


  • I’d love to know how this is done. It looks scary and amazing.


  • This magic trick has been around for decades …. and that’s all it is, a trick. Lighten up peeps!


  • Heavens above. it is a magic trick!. it is pure illusion. very clever. cool daddy. she will love this photo at her 18th or 21st birthday party!
    no one worries if the assistant is a pretty young lady!


  • Really? people need to grow a sense of humour. It’s just a magic trick and magic is his life. When his daughter grows up she will be thrilled that he uses her as part of his magic tricks. Personally I think he’s a pretty cool dad.


  • Ummm, it is a magic trick. He didn’t really cut his daughter in half people.


  • It’s amazing what some magicians can do !! Can people not see the art in this ?


  • Lol…it’s a trick. I struggle with the idea that some adults think he is really sawing a baby in half???? but I guess there are also people who genuinely think the world is flat.


  • Oh! Come on!! Where is the trick????? :-)
