Ali Cook, 38, is a magician and actor. He has appeared on TV shows such as Penn & Teller: Fool Us, shared a stage with Beyoncé and has famous fans including JK Rowling.

Magician's "Bubble Wrap Bike" Is a Hit
Eric Buss asks the camera before pedaling – and popping – away on his bubble wrap bike. The creative – and surely envy-inspiring – contraption is actually the second bubble wrap bike incarnation. The first was created shortly after Buss’ son was born. “It was my escape out to the garage to have fun and be silly,” Buss said. “It was my lack of sleep that got me thinking so weird.”
