Are we on the brink of a new kind of magic sell out? So we got Luke Dancy hosting a web show called "Secrets Revealed". Luke Dancy, a professional magician, creator and consultant on "Mindfreak". So he is not of the usual spoilers of magic. In fact he doesn't spoil any magic at all. Eric Jones is. I respect Eric Jones. And he goes on explaining magic. His own magic. I'm okay with that, but why the hell? But first here is the video.
there is a second video, where Eric Jones is explaining the routine in detail.
Going back to my initial question. Are we on a brink of a new kind of magic sell out? Well obviously yes. It's not enough to teaser trailers. Obviously people are fed up with those and the lies. So Eric offers a bit of "honesty" by revealing parts of the product he sells.
And while I think that the routine is a whopper I cannot get myself not noticing the fact that it may not be his own. There is P.D.Q. Coins Across by Paul Harris, which is similar, but not the same. But let be check up on my good ol' Bobo: Classic Palm, check! Click Pass, check! Han Ping Chien, check! Well here it is. All the stuff published before Eric was born.
Hmm, maybe it truly is original. It's a worker though. I do a similar routine with just three coins. Quicker and a little bit easier. Maybe I should put it on a DVD?
Sad when it has come to this, that magic dealers have lied to the costumers so much, that the most desperate measure, that of exposing, is necessary to accomplish one thing. Selling Magic!
