While we’ve all been busy fretting about how civilisation will press on without our beloved Facebook and Instagram, big Aussie ledge Hamish Blake and his missus Zoë Foster-Blake have been dealing with a much greater qualm: their son vanishing into thin air, leaving only a hat behind.
Before social media went to hell, the comedian shared a video of his absolute muffin of a son, Sonny Blake playing a v. clever prank on his daddio.
The young man hides around a corner and suspends his hat in mid-air, then as his father approaches, he hauls ass at a speed that would rival the Flash.
“Still at a complete loss as to how my son disappeared into thin air,” Blake captioned the vid. “@davidblaine I know you and I have had our differences in the past but honestly if you could shed any light on this I would forever be grateful… “
Have a look at the dazzling, bewildering, mind-boggling feat below:
@hamishblake + @zoefosterblake, I think you’ve got a young magician on your hands! Either that or an absolute sprint sensation. Both extremely viable options.
I leave you now with another blessed image of the aforementioned hat that mini-Ham was last seen wearing prior to his disappearance.

When I was a kid, without fail, my father would, every single day of his life, no matter what else he had on, not take me to a Yankee game. Just to be safe pretty much every day he would keep us on the other side of the world from the stadium, such was his discipline. When I became a father myself I promised I would try and do the same to show my kids what determination looks like but yesterday I had a brain fart and slipped up bad. ???? #blakemewithyou
