How to levitate a playing card with your cellphone!

I got about halfway through making one of these before I started questioning its seriousness. Is it a joke? Or, hopefully, is it valid?

Don't you just love who gullible some people are? ; ) Anyway, now that I've shared this with everyone, should I delete this topic. I'm not sure how it could benefit anyone else by leaving it up, and I try to clean up my messes.

If anyone knows the latter to be true, could you give the scientific explanation for why a cellphone can levitate a playing card?

Looking up how to add a video now. :P Here's the URL in the meantime:

Errr...Perhaps I'll make an Instructable on how to not read the entire set of directions in an Instructable on how to make videos. Mmmmm...recursion :P

That's because playing cards are thin. ; )
but dont you remember he put that nickel on the card so it wouldnt disapeer that easily

First off, I was being facetious, as I have through this entire ordeal. Second, it isn't edited, just very bad quality.

Could I bother you to perhaps visit this site? It really bothers me when people do that. :P

Oh GOSH! You caught my typo! Sorry, but because of recent changes to this site, I'm forced to use Firefox, the one and only application on my computer without spell-checking.
you're kidding, right?
No. I'm not kidding. Most applications on the Mac work with the OS X integrated spell checker. So far, all except Firefox.
firefox does have a spell checker...
