It's not adhesion, it's video editing.

I am sorry! I didn't watch the whole video. I assumed he was going to do the same old trick of cardboard sticking to the glass rim upside down. I apologise again.

Can't you just watch it? He made the water stay like the shape of the glass after removing it.
It's pretty entertaining to watch

It's video editing, as Bandersnatch said, nothing else.

Yeah, he does not even touch it and it collapsed. But still it's pretty amazing to watch

Yes nice trick. How did he fake it? All video editing or Wet Jello?

The free standing water looks similar to the reflections and transparency by produced by a ray-tracing. And he just supper-imposed that figure onto the background of the room.

A detailed analysis of the video, and of the physics, which shows how the fakery was done.

Since this is no longer a physics issue, it has been moved to the GD forum.

Not trying to be insulting, but what I find mind boggling is that people actually think this is anything but video editing.
I mean, I could somewhat understand being tricked by this one:

(The part where he removes the paper)
But thinking the entire glass shaped column of water will stand up on its own? Come on.

Are you referring to me?
I don't believe this is super amazing physics. I said this is nice to watch(I have even written it in bold)
I know that this is videoshopped.

No, I can see you made it clear you didn't think it was actually real. I don't know why you'd think I was referring to you.

my mistake, I had recently seen too much of unbelievable physics phenomenon (like water boiling at zero degrees etc) and i thought this to be related to some physics principle which I didn't know.
any way thanks everyone for clearing my doubt.;-)

This is great to! I would give anything to make this a possibility.
