Jesse Wellens and Casey Neistat want to show you “A Whole New World” of Halloween shenanigans. The duo pulled off an Aladdin-inspired magic carpet stunt that dropped many a jaw throughout New York.

The video, which has gone viral online since debuting Friday, shows Wellens dressed as Disney’s “riff raff street rat” riding a booster board-powered magic carpet through the streets of Manhattan.

Neisat told EW that Wellens was the one who came up with the idea after “spitballing” a few weeks ago. “We had to have it be really dramatic,” he said, while the ultimate goal was to put a smile on everyone’s face for Halloween. Watch the results below.

Wellens is a vlogger behind the PrankvsPrank and BFvsGF YouTube channels, while self-taught filmmaker Neistatan was featured on the HBO series The Neistat Brothers. Watch them work their magic behind the scenes in the clip below.
