Topic: One more "laser version"
Message: Posted by: Hector (Nov 27, 2007 07:43AM)
Hello:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLkpiA7Hubk&feature=related

One more rip-off of the Mr. Copperfield´s Laser illusion. But in this case, I don´t think that the problem is that he is doing a copy.. (of course is also the problem). Here, I think, the problem is that he thinks that this illusion is ready to be done in front of a like audience... and more! On TV... and MORE! to be uploaded on YOUTUBE for be watched for the whole planet...

What do you think about examples like this one?

I have to say that I don't have any problem whith mr. Luisini. It is just an example...

Nice camera angles...

That is just so sad...I wont even mention the copyrights issue, but now the method is totally ruined, or should I say flashed. I feel a headache coming...

As for the origami...I am speechless.

This guy tops them all.

Yes, that Origami certainly was "a piece". I would be taking that thing out back and going to town with a sledgehammer and ax like I have done to numerous Jim Steinmeyer knock off props!

I don't know where to begin....the flash, the poorly made prop....the list goes on

Now who would'a thunk you could make an Origami
outta cardboard and black duck-tape?

If you go to his website,
you can find a whole circus of ripped-off illusions.
Some people just do need to be taken to court...

Wow...This is so pathetic. When we people learn that you can't perform this illusion. It look extremely bad when you can't control the angles and put in the practice that David did.

Some one needs to tell them that if your going to rip off a illusion at least do it right so you don't look like a fool.

If you don,t mind guys, I'll continue Mark parker's idea:

When you'll shoot, please don't miss him. Just kidding...

The one positive thing is at least he did give his own twist to the illusion.

That last one looks like a copy of Lance Burton's opener to his first TV special where he vanished a heard of elephants.

I hate rip off illusions. don't get me wrong I also hate that david hogs this for himself and wont let us do it, but why do people have to ruin illusions by making bad copies? I'd never own a rip off, but if I really wanted to I could at least make one that fooled people!

I say we all go TP this guys house

It's better than the laser which still had flashes, and still was a rip-off.

Eventually the prop will get revenge on the magician but it is so sad and wrong.

Im pretty sure that those folding sections of that first Origami were barely held together with black electrical tape.

Our brotherhood should have stricter copyright and trademark rules to strongly guarde the trade secrets. I know it was discussed here many times and my first posts were concerning the exposure on the the www. but I am telling you that nothing will happen if we don't try to stop this somehow...

(He also has things like this rip-off of Copperfield´s metamorphosis:

But there is lots of magicians doing the "laser illusion" there on the net (most of them are done by kids!!):
