Another example of the mentality behind exposure - note the "disclaimer" claimer - includes all who are deceivers - pathetic - but we have our own group of exposures in this country as well - and on the internet --

times have changed --- nothing is sacred ---

there are no secrets....

Wow- this was very difficult to watch..
Jerks indeed, kind of dull as well.

Sometimes I wonder if exposure shows like these are the reason Nigerians have labled us "Americans" "Australians"
& "Brits" to be the biggest suckers on the planet....

Just a thought.

Kind of clueless.

They don't even understand themselves why they are doing it.

At the end of their videos:

"Magic is a powerful weapon that, instead of developing the critical and rational thinking of people, screws deeply in them credulity, amazement and establishes wonder and inexplicable into a society already ill and rotten by millenial beliefs and other irrational and ridiculous superstitions. STOP BELIEVING!"

I'm so glad that these guys decided to step in a save everybody from the evils we cause. I'm ashamed of myself.

As I said, THEY don't really understand why they are doing it. They equate mystery and theatrical illusion with superstition and witchcraft. These guys need to read Absolute Magic.

Their premise is faulty from the get-go. While people do enjoy the mystery, do many of them believe that Copperfield really walked through the Great Wall of China?

Often is the case that people who pretend to be exposurers for the sake of the greater good - are really doing it because they wanna get a name for themselves...

I'm all for exposing people who are genuinely fake (?!) by that I mean, open-eye mediums who are taking people's money...but other than that - I'm all for a bit of mystery and wonderment...leave it be...

I undersign what you say abraxus. Real magicians are not here to say that they have powers. They are just entertainers.

In this "product advertising world" people more often don't believe in the free "invisible" stuff (friendship, love, family gather) and people are living for themselfs like everyone is the "ONE". Of course when someone give them attention and just ask for 10% of their month income that's is nothing compared of getting a 400$ object that gives a 10min happiness... for 10% they feel better and relief for longer time... Happiness is advertised as a product to get... and more you get...more you feel well... lol and isn't this FAKE? People knows but "Hey whatever, let's get more and more!!!"
People tend to forget if doesn't appear in TV, journals, etc because how do you remember stuff if you everyday are bombed with news (bad&good)? It's too much stuff for your brain...

I don't know if you understand what I mean... my english...

All the best


offtopic: Maybe I would just change hapiness for PLEASURE! Because no one get´s happy when buy something, it just feel better, for a short time of course. The true hapiness maybe is just when you know that someone or everyone is happy to!

I get you Elcio - your english is far better than you maybe think...

pleasure is an instant gratification
happiness is a prolonged inner peace

just like reading the newspaper whilst on the lavatory..

Reading a newspaper seldom if ever brings about a prolonged inner peace, let alone happiness. Smile

The internet is the worst thing to happen to Magic and Mentalism. Again, just shows why we need to use more discretion about what we say online and with whom we share information.

Exposure is like dropping your pants in public. It requires no talent or intelligence, but gets you some attention.

It's hard to ignore this tripe, but it's better that we don't invest our energy in being upset about it.

What I find amusing is their method is nothing like my own. If I was performing for someone that saw this exposure video, they would still be astonished.

Can it be that these "exposures" are lashing out because they simply could not make it as legitimate magicians?

I still consider that "Copperfield" Special to be one of the neatest television events...
Walking through the "Wall of China" is still beautiful to watch..

These ********* believe they are doing a service, if they really want to do something worthwhile then do some voluntary work for a charity.. I can't stand people like this, they destroy creation and are self serving..

As mystery entertainers we give something, whilst they take it away. I can only assume they have no imaginations, integrity, intelligence, lives or brain cells. Youtube and such like can be fascinating to browse through, I watched a great Kuda blindfold sequence but equally it is an open door to morons with as much creativity as my left sock..
