I just read the review, and while I think perhaps too much was revealed, I can certainly understand why Mr. Henderson thought it okay to go into such detail in his review.
To me, as a magic consumer, the point that really jumped out at me in the review was the misrepresentation in the advertising copy that the trick is "totally impromptu," and that immediately at the end "you are totally and unequivocally clean." I can't think of a reason why it would be okay to say that. Perhaps someone else can...
once a magician,
Thank you for taking the time to respond to my original post. I was not planning on responding
to any of the posts in this thread, rather I wanted to see what everyone else had to say, but I felt I needed to make a quick comment on your post.
I thought it interesting that you said "I think perhaps too much was revealed" but then go on to say "I understand why Mr. Henderson thought it ok to go into so much detail."
This sounds very wishy washy to me. I can think of no excuse to reveal gimmick and methodology, be it for crediting or in regards to the advertising copy, which for the record, had Mr. Henderson visited my website first or even read the back of the DVD, He would have read this ad copy:
Imagine being able to...
openly, instantly and visually penetrate a sealed bottle with a cap and immediately show your hand empty!
Well imagine no more! With Prohibition youll be able to do this with:
No preparation to the bottle.
The bottle can be any color or transparency.
The bottle and cap may be borrowed.
Everything is completely examinable before and after the effect.
As close to special FX as you can get... LIVE
You're going to LOVE Prohibition!
I dare anyone to tell me what part is not true in this advertisement.
