Remember Mentalism Peyman?

Of course you do, being a faithful reader and such. If not, let me get you up to date:

Mentalism Peyman is a self proclaimed mentalist and illusionist, selling tricks and ripping off copyrighted material. Just follow the link and see the wonderful videos that back up my point.

I almost forgot about him, until I got a newsletter by a German magic dealer who advertises a product that features said wannabe performer with the charismatic aura and confused look of a guinea pig that has been thrown against a brick wall.

It's a levitation called Power Levitiation 1. And as expected it looks like shit, but that is just my personal opinion. But see for yourself! This is official demo video:

Think about it! This gem in levitation system costs more than 2000 dollars, but they cannot invest in a proper video? Hell, even HD? This gives you a little bit of a clue how much the costumer is valued. And btw. It looks hella uncomfortable for the person levitating. If I would be bending backwards like that I would be in pain. This version is even worse:



It always feels like magic is used for even less than base motifs.

It's the Dancing Cane of levitations.

Yikes.

Thankfully, as technology advances we'll be able to do these with IT instead.

Didn't invest in a good video? Hell, didn't even invest in a SHIRT!

I seriously don't know why would someone try to pretend to be a mentalist or have a superpower on such a hard stuff like levitation.. like this Mr. Peyman. I think it's a lot more impressive some simple yet effective mentalism tricks. It would be more convincing.
