I've got a lot of respect for Jimmy Strange. I loved Deceptus. He's now turned his attention to mentalism:

Sweet Suggestions

'I think sweet Suggestion is killer, love it! - The idea of getting the participant to step inside one of their thoughts and bring something from the deepest, darkest regents of their mind into 'physical reality' is mind blowing.' - Peter Turner

Sweet Suggestions brings a childhood memory to life for your spectators

Sweet Suggestions is a new concept in mentalism. What starts as a simple childhood tale becomes a powerful moment of magic when reality kicks in.

Here's what happens:

You tell a tale of going to the seaside when you were a child and begin to recall all of the sights and sounds. You paint a picture of all the sweet carts and stores and all of the smells associated with these kinds of places.

You then ask your spectators to think of a time they had been to a place like this and ask them to start naming some of the sweets and foods you would eat. As they name some foods you ask them to focus on one of them for example a doughnut or candy floss. Ask them to close their eyes and really imagine they were back there and that they had the snack in their hand. Ask them to imagine eating the snack and then to do the thing we all do at the end of eating something sweet like a doughnut, to lick their fingers to clean all the sugar off. When the spectators do this the actually TASTE THE SWEETNESS! That is right, they taste the sweetness on their own finger, just as if their imagination had caused them to manifest their thoughts into reality!

Sweet Suggestions uses one of the most important factors in our life"..... Food, so by using a childhood memory and Jimmy's devious and off the wall methodology, you can create a moment that will last a lifetime for your spectators.

With no prior engagement with your spectators you can literally walk up to a stranger who you have never met before and perform Sweet Suggestions.

Create the illusion that you are a master of suggestion, use it as a bizarre effect with no explanation or just empower your spectators to believe that they manifested the taste themselves somehow. However you play this routine it always leaves a very strong lasting impression.

Points to remember:

Very easy to do.

Can perform the effect to one or multiple spectators at the same time.

The method is so well disguised you will be done before you know it and so all you need to do is concentrate on engaging your spectators.

Unique effect that is not like ANYTHING your spectators will have experienced before.



What do you think? Would you perform this?

In addition to the patter and routine, is this trick a "delivery system" much like Aroma was?

I don't know - feels a little weak. I like the concept of the sweet and taste but if backtracked is this really so amazing?
