What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

This one made me smile. It seems to defy easy categorization having both an old school and cutting edge feel. I can picture Dunninger and Derren Brown using it.

For all I know, they did.

Nice thing to have in the tool kit. Thanks Funsway.

Thank you Funsway. I will try it out when I get a chance. This one could be a great effect, in front of the right audience.

Thanks for sharing!

I am not sure if it realy will work in German(y).
But that's a kind of a cultural thing.
Sorry for my English! My German is a little bit better ;-)

Well, Hanussen developed contact mind reading and related non-contact effects in Austria and Germany, and hypnotism seesm to work in all cultures -- so why not subliminal cues?

but, if you do not think it will work, then it won't -- since it is based on trust and rapport.

The cue is not the problem.

German people love to see a good show, but very often they hate it, to be part of the show. So you have to select your "assistant" really careful.

OK -- that is a different perspective -- an issue I will mention when putting htis effect in a large book. Perhaps all Mentalism effects should consider the appropriateness for this "reluctance" in various cultures.

On the flip side, In Your Pocket could be used to test an Assitant's suitability for other planned effects

Sounds like a good idea to make a kind of test out of that Smile

So I've now had the chance to work with this, and yes funsway is correct in that, at worst this is a test to see what the person says/thinks before moving on to something else. In other words we're talking standard mentalist outs as we claim it's a test.
However, when it works (I'm working on approx 75% on a direct or next to direct hit)it's surprising just how big the reaction can be from the layman. yes this is a lovely piece which of course can be expanded upon in many ways for those of us who think that way.

Okay, okay ... you made me curious.
@Boo de Hoop: Hello fellow German. Move to the Rheinland (Western Germany) and everything will be different ;-)

I once made love with a German shepherd. I don't think this is coincidence.

Hey, funsway, thanks very much - I like this idea very much but haven't had the chance to use it in practice yet. Will let you know once I have, but just wanted you to know that I wasn't going to leave you without a response
