One way to quit smoking: Make the cigarettes disappear

April 21, 2015

We caught up with Brandon Ulloa, a street performer from Desamparados, on a street corner in Barrio Amón, and he baffled us with how he made a cigarette disappear and reappear.

How does he do it?

Surely you know he’s not going to tell.

But Ulloa, 21, has a lot more tricks where this came from, and he gladly performs at private events. He’s reachable at brandonulloa13@gmail.com.
