Topic: Get "Clink Gold" for free...and possibly win $100
Message: Posted by: David Regal (Aug 7, 2009 10:42AM)
That's correct. I will send you Clink GOLD for free if you enter a contest, with no obligation to pay me for it, ever - it is yours.

Due to many requests I have made a run of CLINK GOLD, which comes with a gold gimmicked ring, and I am announcing the HOW DO I CLINK? contest.

CLINK is not a trick as much as it is a set of utility gimmicks. This is the first time I have released utility gimmicks into the marketplace, as opposed to a trick that is done one way, and one way only. With Clink one can perform a multiple vanish while standing:

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qnBaDqXlrM]The Vanish[/url]

...or other effects:

[url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSc5I1bpZZI]What is Clink?[/url]

The notion of utility gimmicks can be confusing for people, so I decided to give $100 to the person with the neatest idea for Clink.

If you wish to enter I WILL SEND YOU CLINK GOLD AT NO COST. However, to enter you must promise to:

a) Film yourself performing a routine (60 seconds or less)
b) Post the video on YouTube under the title HOW DO I CLINK?
c) Send me a link to the video, emailing me at regal@regalmagic.com

You will have until the end of August to post your video (this is the honor system), but the cut-off date for entering is this Tuesday night, or 36 entries, whichever comes first. I highly doubt that 36 people will enter, perhaps only one will - if that should happen the entrant is guaranteed to win the $100! In any event, the odds will never be more than 36 to 1.

If you wish to receive a FREE CLINK GOLD and enter the contest, you must be one of the first 36 people to post on this thread that you'd like to enter (that way all can see how many "spaces" are left), then PM me your address so I can send you CLINK GOLD for FREE. I am traveling after Tuesday. which is why there is an entry cut-off of Tuesday night. To be clear, YOU WILL HAVE UNTIL THE END OF AUGUST to post a How Do I Clink? video on YouTube.

I will pick the winning entry. I hope this sounds like fun to you!

So I don't already have to own Clink to enter the contest?

If I post here you send me the clink gold for free and I have to perform a routine 60 seconds or less of it before august?

Sorry for the question my english is not really that good so I'm a little confused,

Thanks,

Ricky

EDIT: Okay I understand now, sorry I was reading to fast! Anyway, yeah I would like to be a part of this contest!
Thanks.

So David what if I'm not a coin guy but feel that this would be killer to add to my strolling?
Though I do mostly all mental magic I can see applications for a thought of coin or like in the video invisible coin. I like it very much and it would be the first ever you tube video I post. Hmm interesting, interesting.

I hope we all get to see the videos too. Maybe you could have quarter finals, semi-finals and then a final Clink Off, David.

Maybe I should just calm down a bit.

But its still quite exciting.

My DVD case arrived crushed... clearly no fault of Mr. Regal's and I replaced the box with another one just like it to maintain my own sanity.

Mine just arrived (in the UK), but like Andy & Michael, the box lost the fight with the post office.. However, the benevolent power (and decent packaging) of Mr Regal reached across the waves, and the disc and gimmicks were intact and in good order.
The size twelve is too big for me as well, but rather than change the gimmick,I thought I'd use lateral thinking.. I'm eating 400 triple cheese, lard and suet pizzas which I calculate should take my finger up two sizes.. mmmm!
Good luck to everyone!

Message: Posted by: JamieD (Aug 18, 2009 06:32PM)
I recieved CLINK today in the post. Again, the box didn't live up to the traveling torutre but everything inside was fine. The effect is very cool and is incredibly deceptive, However, due to my carelessness, I managed to smash a thin glass while holding it. As a result, I now have a rather large slit across the pad of my right thumb and a rather large bandage covering it. Not to mention the blood I lost. just a word to the wise, make sure the glass is not an incrdibly cheap, thin glass. It hurts!

The effect it'self is very cool and has sparked looads of brilliant ide'as and routines!

Mine arrived yesterday. Typical "Regal" magic. Brilliant, elegant thinking that is fooling and easy to do.

I have a few ideas for a routine, but it's pretty hard to beat the three coins to a glass routine, The structure is perfect. This will pretty much replace my bell bucket.

Well, there's about ten days left until the end of the contest. I want to remind all the people who are participating that after they post a video to YouTube, they should send a link to that video to me at:

regal@regalmagic.com

THe video should be titled "How Do I Clink?"

You can also post the link on this thread if you choose - but you should send the link to me at the above address - I just want to be sure that I see all the entrants.

Ok, so I uploaded a couple of bits. They will be removed after the competition, as I had to borrow a video camera for the weekend, and the effects are not polished or to full perfomance standard (a few tells here & there, and the ideas are only a couple of days old..).
However - I had lots of fun playing with Clink, and haven't even tried the supplied routines yet (the video camera had to be returned for the owners holiday, so time was crucial).
For those in the UK, one gimmick is the size of a 10 pence, so lots of possibilities..

The links:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DPOAFyp-R74 (Part 2 would ideally be straight after this, as part of the same routine)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2VuyfJ0aaQ&feature=channel (Part 2: the clip is over a minute, but the performance is under 60 seconds)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hj0-P30Qpms&feature=channel

Clink is great, thank you David, and good luck to everyone else.

Here's what I did with it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gkBdzZ4i0L8

I've enjoyed the videos listed above in the thread.

A search on YouTube turns up about half a dozen "How Do I Clink?" routines, and since mine doesn't appear in a search, even though it's titled properly, I wonder if others aren't appearing either?

Just in case, would everyone mind posting their links here in this thread so we're sure to see all the routines?

Thanks!
Jerry

P.S. Sorry -- this seems to be a better link for my routine than what I listed above: http://www.youtube.com/jerdunnjr

Jerry, I agree I enjoy watching everyone video. Your video will show up in search, it does take about 10 hours but it does show up I thought the same thing.

Good luck to you all.

that's clever and totally counter intuitive...I like the one coin after another aspect which is puzzling even if you have a good idea how clink works and the change of hands holding the glass also subtly shows that theres nothing suspect in the glass..a lot of other clips with the hand firmly wrapped around the glass all the time don't have this subtlety.

Thanks.

I thought this competition of Davids was a good idea initally but I am going to reappraise that to brilliant thinking. I've seen 3 clips so far that have me totally sold on this effect - cunning ploy Mr R ! - And instead of the usual light blather from folk saying this is great and its a killer etc etc etc we are actuallys seeing that this one really is great from real performances.

Hi Everyone -

Just a few days left to post your contest entries on YouTube. Remember to email me with a link at regal@regalmagic.com

I have received 10 emails with links thus far, so please, when you post, email me a link so I can be sure to include you. A couple of people have told me they can't compete due to injury or mechanical failure, but please, if you entered the contest, post!

The good news is that the entries are very good, and some have fooled me!

With Jon Allen and jonnyboy cat why do we have an economy problem. All we need is more cats eating tuna and some pay envelopes and we are set.
Message: Posted by: Bosco J. (Aug 30, 2009 08:59PM)
Great job jonnyboy :D.

My wife walked in the room wondering why I was laughing out loud (LOL), so I decided to grab my cat and "demonstrate". My obstinate cat refused to cooperate (I should have just shown her your video). In the midst of it all, the larger gim**** fell on my hard kitchen floor and split (literally)! Half under the fridge and the other under the stove! Yikes!

I better think, of some other way to Clink :(! Only 26 hours left!

Here is mine:

I decided to include it as an opener to a Miser's dream routine in a show I did at a big hotel. Nothing clever like some of these entries I have seen but it went over really well. The adults were all watching like hawks.

I went over the minute time limit but I doubt I would win anyway. I think jonnyboy and Jon Allen are the serious contenders here.

Thank you David regal, awesome tool.

My Lord,

All these years of boring my family rigid trying out new effects and completely missing that I have another (feline) audiencece in the house and potentially ready made assistants as well.

I know we should always credit John so be sure when my DVD comes out that you'll get credit for :

Silks from Cat
Levitating Cat
Cat in Bottle.

Here's mine (please pay no attention to the performer)

This was actually my third idea as I ran out of time on the first two which involved cards and coins. Personally I'm drawn to the idea of clear cups & balls or cup & ball and will continue to work on it.

Love the idea with the cat.........when we had cats we never got silver but a few times I'm positive it was something radioactive.

Thanks David for including us in this pilot promo..........

Well guys, here's my entry:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNTgpp2FGq4

After the little "accident", I had to shift gears and think of other ways to Clink! It's not very polished or is it a well practiced routine, but I hope it will stir up some ideas for further creativity.

Love the ideas from all the videos so far. I hope Mr. Regal will publish those as well.

Thanks again Mr. Regal (and My 3 year old for loaning me her toys ;)).

Hi Everyone -

A reminder - if you've posted on YouTube please send me an email at regal@regalmagic.com with a link to the video. I count about 25 entries, and I don't want to miss anyone (a few people wrote me because they had tech issues, but that still leaves half a dozen unaccounted for).

I can already say that this contest has resulted in some shockingly good entries, and GOOD FOR DIFFERENT REASONS. It will be very hard to pick a "best," as it is apples and oranges...which I hope makes the point that Clink is not a trick, but a set of utility gimmicks. Again, I have to say that several effects fooled me!

Thanks for participating everyone - I'll try and pick the winner before the holiday.

David

I liked jonnyboys routine, must be some 1964 tuna in that can...
I also liked jerrdunn's routine. Maybe offer them the choice of handkerchief or coin before the vanish?
Or say, "I know it's kind of cheating to vanish the coin under the handkerchief, it makes it too easy for me, so..."
Not to sy I didn't like anybody elses routine, but of the ones I've watched (not all yet) those are the ones that stood out for me.
Thanks guys
