    special effects

    So, how do they do the effects on TOT?
    Do they have a camera that digitally makes it so you disappear in the mirror and its projected?
    What about the part when you see the group of people waving?
    Anyone know?:P

    probably a good question for a TOT CM, but I believe it is done with a live camera, a projector, and some very powerful "real-time" computer software.

    the mirror is actually a big tv and the hidden camera is at the top of the opening to the elavator shaft
    You would think that being in New York for eight months out of the year would be cool...not when the closest thing you have to Disneyland is the World of Disney Store on Madison.
