For those of you with long memories, I wanted to ask the following question
----what are considered in magic to be the greatest publicity stunts of all time?
I'm tempted to steer your answers away from stunts that didn't really
incorporate magic (magicians either doing or appearing to do endurance stunts)
outdoor grand illusions that were doubling as material for television
specials but even still, the floor is wide open.
Perhaps there has even been a great trade-show magician who knew
of a surefire ways to quickly use a stunt to get a crowd to quickly
Maybe some magic themed venues (and periodicals)
also successfully used publicity stunts.
