Just reading your description made my stomach flutter, so I’ll pass on the video.
(Thinks about it and shudders again.)
Yep. I’m still passing on that video.

Magician flubs trick, impales spectator’s hand on spike
Wait, so is it the magician or the spectator that got hurt? The title says one thing, the article another (and I am not watching that video).
Well, it is a magic trick, so there is supposed to be a trick to it. Like none of the spikes are standing up until the magician reaches into the final bag. So someone fucked up.

And I mean doofus. He was doing the whole trick so quickly there was no build, no art, no suspense. No wonder he fucked it up.
Also, today I learn the Polish word for “ouch,” is “owaa!”
