After posting some amazing illusion videos on social media, multiple “Best of Las Vegas” award-winning magician Xavier Mortimer is watching his social media followers magically multiply during the COVID-19 pandemic, gaining fans globally – including the multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter/recording artist Jason Derulo.
Derulo discovered the illusionist’s mind-blowing videos and reached out to Mortimer on Instagram to collaborate on some new videos that have been taking TikTok and Instagram by storm, garnering nearly 30 million views combined in a matter of days.
“During this pandemic I’ve taken to social media with my illusions until I can return to my live show at Bally’s Las Vegas and the response has been unbelievable,” says Xavier Mortimer. “When I received the Instagram message from Jason I was excited to come up with some fun and exciting things we could do together – I never dreamed they would go viral as quickly as they did.”
Within a matter of hours the first TikTok video collaboration skyrocketed with over 14 million views – 10 million of those in the first 12 hours of release, followed by two additional videos that within 48 hours have nearly 8 million views each.
“It’s been so difficult to not be able to perform live here in Las Vegas but to know that these videos have reached audiences globally has been humbling,” adds Mortimer. “Working with Jason was a dream and he was such a great collaborator who really seemed to love the ideas I came up with for these videos. We all need some fun right now during these difficult days.”
During the COVID-19 pandemic Xavier’s social media videos have helped his followers skyrocket from 40,000 to over 5 million – making him one of the most followed magicians in Las Vegas and worldwide.
