WMF Magic Steve
A young man from the Netherlands. With little to no creativity... Check out his demo reel:
Does it feel familiar? Does it ring a bell? No... "Real Secrets of Magic by David Stone" He copies the effects, the angle, the whole framing, even the background. Even the bumpers are copied. Magic Steve even took the music from the DVD. This is no longer an homage, this is theft. (Love how the video at 2:05 says "unique, trendy and creative")
Of course he steals from others as well, but think about what kind of person he must be in order to shamelessly not be creative and unique. Most are uncreative because they fail at it, not because they do not try! But here we have a lazy and magicians who simply doesn't seem to give a shit about being original.
Well at least you got a nice title.... it's called Weekly Magic Failure.
btw, does the top photo remind you of something?
