Oh yeah, I used to perform that for friends. Just an extra pair of laces hung by a string down the pant leg, and he pulls the laces up during the shaking. His real laces were already tied underneath his pants. Awesome trick though.

As soon as I saw the original post I thought of that video, not knowing it was fake.

Then I saw all the videos explaining it...=/ so disappointing lol

Haha, I could figure it out without thinking too much, exactly what Adam said, it is just obvius if you think about it, really cool trick though, I think I'll try that before starting the next seminar.... lol

The first video was tight. ;D
