Zack King can make traffic disappear, jump through the closed doors of a moving train and steal the Eiffel Tower–and he does so with imaginative fun in his very short films known as Vines.
Here’s What You Need to Know About Illusionist Vine Star Zach King — By Laura Lane
Known as the Final Cut King, Zach King is a bona fide Vine star. While other popular Vine users post six-second pranks, mash-ups or jokes, King’s Vines are also comedic, but they stand out from the crowd with his astonishing illusions that use major motion-picture-quality special effects.
In a recent Vine, King grabs the Apple logo from his computer and turns it into a luscious silver three-dimensional apple and takes a bite out of it. “I definitely got lead poisoning, I think,” he tells PEOPLE. “I looked for edible spray paint and I couldn’t find any.” In another video he turns a lazy friend acting like a couch potato into actual potatoes. And in his most popular Vine, he takes a souvenir from Paris with him: the Eiffel Tower.
King started on YouTube but soon realized that his short relatable videos were more shareable on a platform like Vine – and he was right. His videos have over a billion loops on Vine, and he’s racked up over 3.4 million followers at the time of this post.
