    This Guy Dressed As Aladdin Rode A Magic Carpet Through New York

    Don't you dare close your eyes.

    As a Halloween stunt, filmmaker and entrepreneur Casey Neistat teamed up with Pranks Vs. Pranks to troll New Yorkers by setting a real life Aladdin loose on the city.

    Understandably, people flipped their fez.

    They just wanted to know the Aladdin's secret!

    Luckily, Neistat posted a second video showing just how the carpet was made and how they filmed it so well.

    The carpet was in fact a cloth frame attached to a battery-powered skateboard that Jesse, the real name of skaterboy Aladdin, controlled with a remote control in his hand.

    Meanwhile, Neistat followed Jesse backwards on his own skateboard filming, which is really a whole other stunt in itself.

    These guys are really one jump ahead of the breadline.

    Nice job guys, Genie would be proud.
