Some people bunk on to buses by sneaking on the back doors while the driver isn’t looking, or perhaps brazenly walk on without touching their Oyster in the hope that nobody challenges them.

But not magician Dynamo. The Bradford-born illusionist has demonstrated another way to use public transport without paying; by levitating next to a London bus as it crosses Westminster Bridge.

The stunt, performed for Pepsi’s #LiveForNow campaign, bemused tourists out to snap pictures of the Houses of Parliament, who instead were faced with the peculiar site of a man hovering next to a bus. He's been here before, of course, pretending to walk across water beneath the bridge, back in 2011.

Quite how he pulled off the bus stunt, we’re still not sure – and to be honest it’s probably best to keep a mystery so we can enjoy it as an amazing illusion. What we do know, however, is that he’s a cooler, British, less-weird answer to David Blaine.

Shazam!
