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.
If you’re unable to stream video from external sites on postal computers, you can use a personal smartphone, tablet or other device to go to YouTube.com/usps and watch the videos off the clock.
The commemorative cards are included in The Art of Magic Kit, which is available on usps.com. The kit also includes the stamps, links to the videos and step-by-step illustrated instructions on performing each trick.
