Soar away on a magic carpet ride through New York City!
The latest video from YouTube's PrankvsPrank channel has Jesse Wellens, dressed as Aladdin from Disney's 1992 animated film, riding around on a motorized skateboard that has been designed to look like the magical carpet the petty thief-turned-prince and Princess Jasmine flew on. He zooms by awestruck onlookers and to give off the appearance that the board is magical he sits upon it while filmmaker Casey Neistat moves it back-and-forth with a remote control.
