Hi Sean,

So how do you like it?

Ray,

I liked it. It is a handling of an AN-esque type thought acquisition method (read: It needed to be "sanctioned" by Millard). That said, the basic idea and handling thought were good. Without going into specifics, I will use the method in relaxed manner. My personal scripts for word revelations (my Manuchuran Candidate/ Freudian Slip) give a justified reason for filling the necessary spaces. Any more info would need to be discussed in Inner Thoughts. Maybe I should suffice it to say, his HAND-ling makes the work angle-proof.

Regards,

Sean

Glad to read that Spidey.

I had nothing against you personally and clearly my initial question has an answer now.

Best


Public forums are the best place to ask such questions. If you ask them in private no one has a chance to reach the wrong conclusion Smile

It´s this product an AN rip-off?
No
It´s a variation technique to get the p**k from an AN bi**t?
Yes

Although nothing revolutionary,some interesting ideas and the "Conexion" effect is something very classic but with a good structure in my opinion.

Just watch the video and I have to say I really like it!

Spidey explands two peeks. bubble peek and conexion.


>> bubble peek <<

Yes, it is obviously the variation of AN, but the way billet "opens" is very unique.

I watch the explanation and I really had to laugh. How didn't I think of this, after playing with billets for almost ten years!

I am sure I will use this peek. I like it very much.

>> conexion <<

This is very cleaver indeed!

If I will not use the entire routine, I definetly use some of the subtleties Spidey suggests.
These subtleties utilize the charactaristics of double blank cards.


I think both tricks are workers. I will definetly use both of them.

This peek will absolutely fool anyone you come into contact with. Nobody will get it. 100% amazing and beautiful. You will need to come up with a reason to hold it in your hand however. Buy it. For ten bucks this is the best freaking method and explanation ever! I've gotten so many gigs with this. I made back the money I paid for it in less than two days after I got it!
With all due respect,

I´m sorry P360 but that´s a very funny first post, especially the last two lines...
English is not my first language but reading it fast it looks like you make $5,00 a gig and just bought the most amazing thing ever...

Oh boy... YubTub here we go again...

Hey guys,

Im not sure what the implication is about P360's review, but I sincerely have no affiliation with him and I don't know who he is. HOWEVER, I would like to thank you, P360 for a great review. Seems like to these guys it kinda seemed like a sales pitch, but I appreciate your intent and thanks for sharing Smile

Thanks to everyone who had nice things to say about this Smile Glad you guys are enjoying it!

I'm a big fan of Bedros "Spidey" Akkelian and his Sneak Peek

A different trailer for Sneak Peek:

This man is a wonderful, engaging performer!

Well this thread looks like it got out of hand lol.

So I got the Sneak Peak. I think it's good and has its advantages (if someone challenges or surrounded), but I also think its unnecessary. If your presenting it right 90% of the time people won't challenge and disregard the writing as important, so I prefer AN to this actually because its more open, quicker, and because of that it takes the importance away from the b*llet. Not to take away from this, as its a useful tool to have for that off chance but I've yet to have ever needed it as even when I'm surrounded audience management make up for it.

To me, this falls in line with what I call "magical masterbation" (can I say that?) because most people would get it to fool their magic or mentalist buddies since its overkill otherwise. It just depends on who your performing for.

So it's a useful tool and not bad, its just unnecessary.

However, the effect he presents with the blank cards in the video I really enjoyed and think that was a wonderful addition to this video. I'd say the video is worth getting for $10 simply because of this added with the peak. I thought it was great.

And to Spidey, that YouTube video the person above me posted of you performing for that reporter lady I really enjoyed the arm part a lot. I think because its just such a "pure" moment and is one of those things where people watching it will most likely try it themselves at home and it will make them think of you. Ties in great with how emotions affect us.

Anyway it's good to meet you Spidey Smile

Keep it up
Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.

I got this but other than the drawing dupe used to demonstrate I didn't see any other effect on the video.

It is a shame this thread has such an off putting title. I've just watched Sneak Peek and tried it out. It is very deceptive and with a handling I have not seen before. For a sneaky peek, this has to be one of the best and one I'll definitely be using. All you need is a pen and business card and you're all set for a miracle - what more could you want!
