Illusionists Barry and Stuart devised a cunning plan to make the residents of Athens, Ga., believe their town is the most psychic in America. Upon their arrival, they stage an illusion in which Barry crushes a motorist's car using just the power of his mind — and it goes viral on the Web. Next, Barry goes to a comic book store, hoping to convince customers that they have their own, superhero-like psychic powers.
