Hunter's 'Invisibility Cloak' Leaves People Baffled, Crying 'Witchcraft'

TikTokers were left bewildered by a video that's gone viral showing a hunter's "invisibility cloak," suggesting that it was either faked or that witchcraft must be involved.

Steven Sisco, under his TikTok account @stevensisco5, was in fact just sharing footage of his standard hunting blind with the app on May 23. The video focuses on the outside of the blind, which is a camouflaged tent-like structure.

The next clip shows the view from the inside, which is a clear view of the outside, as if there is no material in the way at all. After gaining more than 600,000 views, many were left confused, and some accused Sisco of faking the video.

One disbeliever commented: "That's a painting on the inside. Have someone walk around on the outside, while you are inside."

"Fake," commented one user. Another called it "witchcraft."

After being asked by a TikTok commenter, Sisco took to his account to prove the video wasn't fake. The follow-up clip he posted shows him clearly walking from the outside of the blinds to inside.

"This is for all the people saying it's fake," he prefaced the clip.

The video was shared yesterday, May 27, and had amassed over 1 million views at the time of publication.

Sisco's structure is a Rhino 180 hunting blind, used to be able to watch animals while not being seen by them. The blind is made from a mesh material that reflects light and while it appears like a camouflaged tent from the outside, from the inside you can see out very clearly.

It works in a similar way to bus window advertisements that still allow passengers to see out. To be effective it needs to be darker inside than outside, so it's really for daytime use.

For seasoned hunters, the design is nothing new, but baffled TikTok users dubbed it an "invisibility cloak."

"Harry Potter's cloak, but make it country," joked one user.

"What in the world? If it wasn't for TikTok, I would never know," wrote another.

Others theorized about what would happen if it was flipped inside out, hoping it would make an "invisible tent," by reflecting the outside. Sisco however confirmed in a response that it would simply mean outsiders would be able to see the inside of the tent.
