The 33-year-old is then let out of his case to a rapturous applause by the waiting Villarreal public who are delighted to have one of their own back at the club.
At their Estadio de La Ceramica, a magician entertained the crowd by filling a glass tube with smoke, before allowing it to dissipate and reveal Cazorla.
And Villarreal marked the return of the 33-year-old in odd fashion by using a magic trick to present him to thousands of the club's fans.
The weird presentation started off with an empty capsule on a platform inside the Estadio de la Ceramica before it began to fill up with white smoke on Thursday evening. This particular post has over 20,000 likes, with fans struggling to comprehend what they had just seen. The popular Spaniard rejoins Villarreal 7 years after leaving them but he is still incredibly popular in that part of the world.
The ex-Spain global started in the youth team at Villarreal before being sold to Malaga in 2011.
"It's been a very special day, returning home", he added.
Villarreal have unveiled the signing of the returning Santi Cazorla by using a freakish magic stunt.
"Now it's time to give everything for this shirt and this club".
"I am eternally grateful to Villarreal for giving me unconditional support during these two years and always open the doors for me".
