A trick I have been doing for two years (and mentioned here on the Café for all to see) appeared on the Derren Brown show tonight in the UK. Coincidence? Maybe. Be careful what you tip here on the Café!

I have performed this trick replacing the nail with a live mouse. The advantage here is that the spec or magi is in no danger at all and yet an element of danger still remains.

My big problem is that whenever I perform this trick in the future people will say I copied Derren Brown. I wish he would have done some research and sought my permission first, after all the proof that the idea is mine is here on the Café which I know Derren and his team visit on a regular basis. Maybe they did see it and just decided to take the idea. Who knows?! Another case of the small guy being shafted by the big guy I guess.

Why don't you try to contact him? Maybe you'll be surprised by the results.

I think you're greatly overestimating his exposure.

For the one in a million that saw it and say anything, you can let them know that he's great and you're honored to have come up with the effect he did and have him understand it's power enough to select it for such a prestigious show. No matter where he got the idea from, the statement is all true and everyone wins!
