      The glass chewing was obviously sleight of hand and placing something else in there. I don't know about the rest.

            This “magic trick” could have been executed with the magician NOT actually swallowing the glass. Which I’m hoping is the case with this magician to avoid discomfort (even though swallowing glass is ok)

            Step 1:
            Magician prepares two things a “medium-size” shard of thin ice in his pocket and a slightly thicker shard of ice resting against his cheek to account for the crushing noise of the “glass”. The magician forces the thin shard onto the table as soon as he seems to pick out a piece of glass from the pile and places it in the hosts mouth. (Host tries to hold his poker face, knowing that what’s in his mouth is cold and probably ice).

            Step 2:
            I noticed throughout the act that the magicians cheeks looks a little bit chipmunky which makes me believe that the genuine piece of glass (selected by the host) in the magician’s mouth, gets slipped in either in inner cheek pocket or some sort of sponge material to hold it off his gums and cheek and still be able to talk. I think most of the “magic” was happening when he was trying to position the glass correctly inside his mouth before crushing down on the “thicker shard of ice” which the magician has still in his other cheek from the beginning (which has probably melted significantly by now. This is why I’m calling it “thicker glass”).

            Step 3:
            The host is obviously in on the mind games, either the magician has instructed the host to say those 2 words in his mind during the act or prior to. (Could have easily been done during the act and the host has no choice but to sell it.) there could have been small font on the plate or table or wherever the camera angle doesn’t show. It would probably read: “What’s on your mind? Sydney and Matchbox”

            Of course if the host and magician aren’t wussys then it’s possible that they could have safely eaten the real glass. Or at least the magician.

                                            James Corden is pandering to the celebrities by dissing Trump all the time. He knows this will bring him favor with the biggest stars and make him popular with mainstream (fake) media. You think he cares who's the president - it's not even his country. He's a fukcing cop out who would sell his soul to the devil for fame and fortune.
