Who has seen this illusion live from Gary Ouellet?
Who can describe it in live show (I don't mean expose the secret)?
Is Test Condition performed in a different way live or is the same like from DC TV show?
Who performs this illusion, just Mr. DC?

I've seen it live and it's a little bit different live than on tv Smile
This goes for every BA effect that Copperfield uses on Tv in his last tv show and I understand his thinking behind this: by making it better (enhance it) for tv you can make it more magical (and more difficult to find out the workings) and people who come to his live show will still see the same effect. (but with a different methode)
I hope this info helps you.

Gary did invent the effect, then Copperfield bought the exclusive rights for it. So yes, you will only see it in David's show when he decides to have it in his show.

Most of the 'methods' David performs his Illusions on TV are never performed the same in front of a real audience. Hence his 'two or more' method approach...

Fabrice, as an expert in Mega Illusions you should know that.

I don't know the method of Test condition illusion but I ask myself why David don't do it with original method?
Because is easyer? I don't think so, to protect the method? ok from tomorow I will do floating table with wires, Anyhow we live in a this century where the method could be revealed ...if not right now maybe in a year or two...so Why to do it in other method as original Oulet version?

For TV a different version than live..
To make it look great for the in the round special..
Live is a lot different, but appears to be the same effect to the lay public.

I have been in a live show where DC did the "TESTS COndiTIONS" and I must say it was great in method and coordination. You received the same effect than on TV, even being a very different method.

Best wishes

Dear Silvio ,
you like provocations?
personally when the provocations are free ,
I don't like it ,
so again I have no comment about you !

I don't have seen this illusion performed live,
but I saw some others illusions from DC show live,
anyway I remember about the differents technique between live an Tv ,
so I was just asking for a confirm if he did the same job also whit Test Condition Aka Millennium Cabinet,
just this,

Thanks to evry body here,
and Marry Christmas,

Who really belive about that'story on Mr. Dc " have many versions on each illusions"?

and if he really have more than one version on each illusions ,

why I saw 14 times in 14 differents place whit differents conditions trough the years the same illusions?
why nobody have seen performed the others versions?

an example :

On The famous Illusion called " One" ,
from tv was Great but not live( this evrybody know) ,

even about Voyeur Illusion and Test Condition and some others,

so if he have a Ferrari( or more differents great cars)

why he used all the times the same cheaper old and bad Toyota?


many of you can say me:

Because " evry places are differents bla blA BLA..... ",


but I think many people know (about Dc ) that,

when he is on tour he work costantly whit a renting stages company( a really big company),

and most of the times he work in a Sport Arena or somethings like indoor Stadium,

so he can have almost the same conditions evrywhere ,

why the magician belive really in that story about 3 or 4 technique on each illusions?
really they belive in this Story ?

This to me ,
look like the Penn and Teller's story about the explanations on some tricks,
some magician really belive they want explaine somethings!

I know is possible do the same effect whit differents technique,
but is Un - Economical!

It's justa fake explanation from Dc to the Audiences nothing more!

Exactly like Penn and teller do!

Otherwise why I saw evrywhere the same :

the same Death saw ,
The same Flying illusion,
the same squeeze box,
the same Motorbike shadow box,
the same Head mover ,

etc . etc. it's a loooooong list!

There used to be footage of his “You” tour in Germany you could find on the Internet. I haven’t seen the full video available in a while but you can search around for it. I think it was in there.

There were 3 versions of the trick in presentation that I’m aware of. Pre-recorded Whoopi, pre-recorded Copperfield, and Chris Kenner live. Kenner wore a lab coat - that was my favorite version.

Visually it’s the exact same trick In a theatre.
