WMF David Martin
Another year, another WMF. This time David Martin,
If you mess up, which can happen and you are being called out for it, don't lie!
The video tells you all. Yet for some strange reason I feel the need to add a few things. David Martin says in the video that he is doing magic for over 25 years. This is strange claim. And most magicians do it. I got a magic kit when I was 4 years old. Does that mean that I am doing magic for 26 years now? Hardly.
If I am honest with myself I should say that I seriously got into magic 10 years ago. And others should do the same.
Also: Martin claims he does "cutting edge magic"! I saw some of his "cutting edge magic" on his website. Making a dove appear, changing a card for another and what you have seen him doing on America's Got Talent. "Cutting edge magic" indeed.
And of course David Martin is not just a magician, no, he is a "master illusionist".
I get why people overdo it when it comes to advertisement. But should it be that way?
How about: "Hi I am David Martin, my wife and I are doing a fun family show that is enjoyed by most people and yeah I'm the guy that messed up during AGT!"
PS. Wearing leather, doesn't make you "cutting edge"!
