It’s magic. To help promote a commemorative deck of cards based on The Art of Magic stamps, USPS has produced five brief videos that showcase card tricks.

Each trick corresponds to one of the magic acts featured on the stamps, which the Postal Service released this month.

The five videos are available on YouTube and feature Mac King, a Las Vegas magician and comedian, and Ben Young, a magician who helps King perform the tricks.

The videos are: Four Aces,” “A Precise Prediction,” “Levitating Lady,” “Gone GalandKarate Card.”
