Jesse Wellens of the popular YouTube channel PrankvsPrank amused many New Yorkers by “flying” around the city dressed as Aladdin while riding a “real” magic carpet.

Using a skateboard mounted with fabric covering PVC pipe, Wellens can use the board traditionally but can also show you the world while sitting and cruising down the road.

In a separate BTS video by director Casey Neistat, the team shows just how they managed to create the magic carpet skateboard and how it was filmed so smoothly.

Gotta love the city of New York where on a stroll to work you casually see Aladdin ride by on a magic carpet.
