    I used to see a commercial for this thing called the Fushigi Magic Gravity Ball all the time when I was younger, and I always wanted to try it out. But what was it, really? Let's find out!

    I actually had a friends that got one of these. She left it sitting on her dresser one day and the sun was shining into her room. The fushigi literally focused the sunlight and started a little fire on the carpet

    I DESPISE the Fushigi. I was so disappointed when I found out it had no special floating abilities. I read that people wanted to file a class action lawsuit against the Fushigi creators for false advertising

    kurtis's videos are so timeless. the way he speaks, the type of edits, the comedy, everything, no matter how old the video they all feel like this, actually my favourite youtuber, keep doing what you do man

    I could see someone at a rave trading their glo-stick for a fushigi ball. Also, Kurtis, you can always go the "David Bowie in Labyrinth" route to fushigi ball mastery: Have someone else who actually knows what they are doing pretend to be your arms while they remain otherwise out of frame.

    This is extremely funny because I have a fushigi, but i literally ACTIVELY refused to get into that trend and even told my dad not to buy one, despite my cousins going crazy for it. Because I knew it was a scam (i dont remember why i knew but i must've heard it somewhere). But then my grandmother bought TWO for me and it was those "glow in the dark" ones for my birthday. Lemme tell you that was the saddest birthday experience. I felt so bad, like I'm never picky with gifts but just the emotion i felt knowing my grandma bought me a useless scam ball, byt i CAN'T let her know. It's pretty funny looking back.

    im actually pretty sure the reason you have to "store the fushigi properly" is because it's essentially a huge reflective crystal ball, which means it's subject to the magnifying glass effect. if you leave it out in the sun, it can concentrate the light to a point and start fires.

    My father was SO into this thing when I was a kid. He'd freak out every time he saw the commercial, just like he was a big kid. He finally got one and demanded I watch the "cool tricks" he learned 😂. He passed last year, this video was a really nice reminder of him 💗

    I’m embarrassed to admit I had a fushigi and I didn’t realize it was going to be this heavy ass ball. I cracked the tile in my kitchen and never touched it again LMAO

    My Fushigi was a Barbie doll that seemed to be able to float in the commercial. You were supposed to control it with a plastic wand and I wanted it SO BADLY, but my parents said it can't actually float, it's actually just gliding on a string. I distinctly remember my fantasy of getting my hands on one, sneaking up to my parents' bedroom door and making it float into the room. I pictured it so vividly I can still remember the scene of me creeping around the corner and hearing their cries of astonishment and awe at the sight of Barbie floating into their room.

    My grandmother gave me one of these, and let me tell you, as someone who never learnt how to use it, the property damage comes from launching the 2 pound rock hard ball into your parents stereo system.

    I also remember wanting this SO BADLY after watching the commercials on my Box TV… I was about 7 yrs old and I never got it cause my parents never thought it was as cool as I did… disappointed… However growing up yo-yos was what was popular! At one point at school, everywhere u looked there would be multiple kids being freaking yo yo masters! They were in elementary too!! Still don’t know how they did some of the tricks and I’m 18 now…

    My mom bought me a fushigi for Christmas that year and I was SO excited for it. It was impossible to use, it was so fucking heavy and there was no way for my tiny 11 year old child hands to do anything with it because my fingers just were not strong enough. It hurt so bad, I was so upset. The fushigi was an evil, evil creation 😔

    As a kid, I always thought the 'illusion' was that the glass outer sphere was to look 'invisible', so it looks like a smaller, floating chrome ball. So I actually hated these commercials because I thought it was a bunch of adults pretending they couldn't see the glass lol

    As a french person (who is automatically granted with great taste and fashion sense at birth), I think the summer time mullet is stunning. Absolutely breathtaking. What a mullet.♡♡♡

    The commercial that always got me excited was for a ladder. It came with a step for it and a flat board and could double in height or be serperated into two ladders. I was like 10 deciding I needed this ladder or else I would die lol

    When I got one of these as a kid, I picked up what was clearly just an ordinary metal and glass ball, read the little card, and instantly realized that it was a scam. However, I felt that since I had invested a spot on my Christmas list for this piece of shit, I was gonna have fun with it, goddammit. So I took the time and learned all the tricks, and it was actually really fun! It does kinda sorta look like it's floating if you can master the trick of keeping it perfectly still as you rotate it. The fun lasted for about 3 weeks, then I got bored, put it down, and never picked it up again lol. 7/10, didn't hate 👍

    It’s hilarious that Kurtis doesn’t realize that he has always looked the part of someone who can Fushigi

    The fushigi coming out in 2010 is REALLY throwing me off… I graduated high school in 2010 and I could have sworn I saw those commercials in middle school. Lol I think Kurtis uncovered a new Mandela effect.
