This is Norway's newest answer to David Blaine and other street performers...

This is the funniest use of a TT that I have ever seen. I'm sure the spectator was a "friend" rather than someone randomly chosen off the street - once you watch you will see why!

Viva Scandinavia! Smile

Norwegian's tend to take a very analytical and perhaps more "conservative" view towards magic, but this performance by Alexx Alexander is definitely NOT something you would see on the Streets of Vegas I suspect.

He is making TV for the biggest newspaper in Norway, called VG. The girl is not random, but an artist from Norway. Her name is Anine Stang. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyvMpqb3Ap8&feature=related. This guy was in the final in Norwegian Talents. He didn´t win. He will also have a show on an theatre in Oslo, Norway. He will shoot several TV performences so it might be worth to check it out.

Yes I know who he is and I believe his father is backing Alex hard from what I hear to hopefully be Norway's next Magic star. He was good friends at one time with someone in my Norwegian side of the family in Oslo - so I have been keeping an eye out for him.

Speaking of eye - he also does a pretty good rendition of Wayne Houchin's "Thread" as well on the new series.

They say there will be 8 new episodes of his street magic on VGTV.

The performance with Anine Stang seems a little stagey, but still a very funny video.

I have a photo of myself performing this at the "President's Banquet" for the National Truck Equipment Association as part of my induction ceremony when I became President. (Way back in 1996) Lou Holtz (then head coach at Notre Dame) was our keynote speaker the day before, and did a torn and restored newspaper effect.


A professional photographer took the photo of me revealing the bra, and the staff of the NTEA framed it and sent it to me with the following caption on the matting.

"Our leader at Work! aBRAcadaBRA!" I will always cherish it!

I didn't use the silk vanish bit and think it really adds a lot!

Thanks for sharing.

Sammy

P.S. This guy just doesn't have the level of personality that David Blaine has!

It's just a combination of the Bra Trick and Acrobatic Silks. Nothing particularly innovative.

I don´t think he has anything to do with his father anymore. Alexx´s father killed Alexx mum in 2005 and is still in prison for this horrible murder. He and his family has suffer a lot and I hope he can do well as an illusionist in Norway. http://www.vg.no/rampelys/artikkel.php?artid=10004101 It is written in Norwegian, but here he tells about the murder.

English translation thanks to Google...

I had in fact heard about the murder some time ago but had forgotten about it- crazy story. I wish him good luck as well

Jesse, I assume you mean the bra and silk trick!
See you in Phoenix in a couple of months.

Just FYI, the routine that Bob (and Scotty York) performed is essentially Heba Haba Al's.
