Reaching new heights

Tim Hortons levitates customers for a new chocolaty drink.

Tim Hortons hasn’t been a stranger to pulling stunts on regular customers lately, but this one takes it to a new level (literally). Working with illusionist Darcy Oake, unassuming customers (and staff) at a Tim Hortons in St. Laurent, QC watched as a woman enjoying a new Creamy Chocolate Chill frozen drink slowly rises out her seat, presumably levitating out of pure joy. Oake eventually revealed himself as staff handed out the drink to the customers that didn’t run away in fear, although they were surely slightly disappointed when they didn’t float into the air as well (there’s also a behind-the-scenes video below, but don’t expect Oake to reveal his magician secrets).
