A video spoof portraying Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov as the main character of the 2006 Hollywood production "The Illusionist" has been posted online.

According to its creators, the mocking video from "The Illusionist" is designed to provide an answer to the question why Bulgarians "like and believe Boyko Borisov".

In addition to Borisov, the seven-minute video, which uses original lines from the film in English with Bulgarian subtitles, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy are also featured as characters.

In the video spoof signed by "videokarikatura", Barroso and Van Rompuy talk about Borisov's past, and the entire clip ends with the EC monitoring report on Bulgaria's post-EU accession progress under the so called Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), as well as with definitions of the words "illusion" and "illusionist":

"An illusion is a deception of senses, a distorted perception of reality. In a figurative sense, this is an empty hope, a dream that cannot come true. Illusions can originate with mentally healthy people."

"An illusionist is an artist presenting tricks based on various material and psychological phenomena and subconscious delusions."
