There’s never a dull moment in New York - but what you don’t see every day is someone hovering through downtown on a magic carpet!

With Christmas still a month away you might think it’s a little early for Aladdin to be on the streets, although that’s what happened the other day – and the resulting video has since attracted an avalanche of plays on social media.

The footage is amazing and shows a cool dude appearing to dodge in and out of traffic as he floats above the ground!

Jesse Welle, from the BFvGF prank series, teamed up with Casey Neistat in order to create the bizarre prank.

By using an electric skateboard and a costume-made magic carpet, the two managed to make something quite impressive.

Watch the clip below.
