Objects can be made to look larger, smaller, closer, or farther than they really are. The guy playing the leprechaun looks small in the right picture because he is sitting on a large replica of a pot and holding oversized coins. The large fake shovel helps. The left image is trickier. The leprechaun is actually sitting much farther away from the camera, but the set is built making the table he is sitting on look like the same table the other man is leaning on. It appears that they are the same distance from the camera with him smaller. Recent movies like the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter use similar tricks to make their characters look larger or smaller than they really are.

He plays the hardest song on expert =p I bet my hands are twice as big as his and he still owns me.
The prestigious journal details the case of a previously healthy 18-year-old woman who consulted a team of gastrointestinal specialists.
She complained of a five-month history of pain and swelling in her abdomen, vomiting after eating and a 40-pound weight loss.
After a scan of the woman’s abdomen showed a large mass, doctors lowered a scope through her esophagus.
It revealed “a large bezoar occluding nearly the entire stomach,” wrote Drs. Ronald M. Levy and Srinadh Komanduri, gastroenterologists at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois.
For the uninitiated, a bezoar is a hairball.
“On questioning, the patient stated that she had had a habit of eating her hair for many years — a condition called trichophagia,” they wrote.
