I just stumbled upon this on Papercrane's website. Check it out! Smile

Infection

The Infection is Eric Ross's take on an effect that was featured on a nationally televised magic special by Penn & Teller. Eric teaches you this great effect with permission from Penn & Teller.

This truly bizarre effect allows you to thread your ear piercing with a needle and thread and allow a spectator to rip the thread straight through your ear. This is a beautiful performance piece that will make you stand out from the common trickster.

Yawn.
This left me totally unimpressed. String through ring, rubber band, etc....ad nauseum and now an ear piercing. Am I really missing something new here?

I like this - looks good. You can get a great deal from Paper Crane Production now thru 12/1/09. I'm going to learn this.

Unfortunately my ear is not pierced but I'm still intrigued by this. I assume it could be done with a tongue piercing too?

I might be interested in this if I could get the blasted video to play. I tried joining Vimeo but that didn't do a thing. Paper Crane is silent on the subject.

Hey guys...use Youtube!

I think that's pushing the limits WAY too far. I would never let a random man who I just met about 10 minutes ago push a needle with string through my ear. It just seems like a magician trying to get a reaction out of his crowd despite what horrible looking/feeling experiences they're going through.

Even if they are not in any pain, I would not do this on a spectator.

Gitty, I thought it was worth the price. I especially like the way it is produced in that grunge street magic macabre way, similar to a Sean Fields video...You may smack yourself for not thinking of the solution yourself. That being said, I'd recommend this effect. Even though my ears are not pierced, I talked my eight year old to let me do it on her to freak out Mom. Haven't done it yet, but looking forward to.

Shane Black (the magician, not the screenwriter) did this for me this past weekend. Fooled the stuff out of me. Cool effect for those of you who have piercings.

Haha not the screenwriter Cameron. I performed this effect several times this past weekend for different audiences and the reactions where similiar. I will say this even though my booth did very well at the Daytona Convention a lot of those guys where looking for instant purchase of infection after watching my performance and we only have the effect as a download. Either way this effect is easy, and will leave your spectator in complete awww. It's a win win situation for the price.
