Does this magical snow 'hack' mean you'll never have to shovel again?

Tired of shoveling that snow? One man may have another option for you.

In a YouTube video uploaded by Joshua Jordan, the West Virginia resident demonstrates how you can toss your shovel aside and instead "roll" the snow for quick-and-easy powder removal.

His impressive technique involves making a little snow ball, then begin rolling it along the snowy ground until gathers — and gathers and gathers and gathers until it looks more like you're rolling up a giant sleeping bag.

"This is how we roll," he says in the two-minute video that was originally uploaded in November, but recently gained attention after being highlighted by a Chicago news station.

There's one catch, however. Jordan is a self-proclaimed "magician" and "illusionist" and his "life hack" might just be that — an illusion.

(If he does, indeed, have a magic trick you can replicate at home, we'll let you know — TODAY has reached out to Jordan for more information, and we're still waiting to hear back.)
