Thank you! It's nice to know that folks appreciate the details!

If anyone is planning a visit to the Windy City in the near future, drop by The Magic Cabaret to see me perform this effect in person!

Wonderful performance, David. It's so nice (and rare) to see magicians who really put thought into their performance, rather than just the trick.

That was one of the more fun, entertaining and fooling routines I have seen on that show in a very long time. I truly enjoyed that David. Kudos!

Thanks! I was so surprised that P&T didn't even have a working theory. But what a nice surprise!

They only have a moment to think about it. Plus... it is classic principles like you used that usually trip them up, especially if layered well enough, as you so expertly did. I've never seen that principle used in that manner before. Again, KUDOS! Well Done!

Thanks, Michael! Glad you enjoyed it! Actually, they have more than a moment to put together a hypothesis. The post-performance interview section is heavily edited down. Before the shoot, I asked the producers how long P&T confer to come up with a theory, and they said "About three to five minutes." In my case, they conferred for double that. Alyson ran out of questions to ask me, so I started interviewing her. When P&T still hadn't finished their intense discussion and scribbling on notepads, Alyson and I just started doing running commentary on what they were doing. Finally, she said "I think they've talked enough. I'm gonna interrupt them." So she did.

Wow! Thanks for the behind-the-scenes play by play, David. It's also great, because it shows that you really nailed the dynamic duo. Again, very well done and extremely well presented. That will leave a great many scratching their heads for a long tome to come.
Magically Yours,

Magical Michael

Really?

Unwise to call attention to the method as you will find many people ready to prove you wrong.
