Ok I have this Video Now Jr. That I use as an assistant and one time I was using it to help me with red hammer.<-------- irrelevant information
Well I picked my victe I mean spectator and went through the shpeel, after the force and before the revelation I got a lot of Oh @#$%'s and No way's any way later that day I was privy to hear the following.
Man: That red Hammer thing he did was so stupid I got that in an e-mail years ago.
Woman: So what. Could you have made it so interesting?
I promptly walked up to her shook her hand and said "Thank you for being the reason magic is still alive."
It just goes to show that an over exposed trick can still play well.
