I mean differently than we've already seen.
When something gets as popular as this video clip did, you know someone will have to ruin it with exposure of the trick's secret.

Here is a German website that exposes Ursula's hankie vanish.

How does knowledge of a plastic thumb thing instruct in being provocative, funny and taking artistic risks?

Thumbs? Funny, I didn't notice any thumbs.

Does the revelation of the thumb tip really represent a secret? Is the 'secret' really exposed? Some things aren't really secrets. The magician's cliched phrase, 'Nothing up my sleeve', comes for a reason: people already know that magicians sometimes use their sleeves. It's interesting, but should anyone be upset by giving up this 'secret'? Nice excuse for some nudity, though. On that level: thanks.

That exposure will have no effect on anybody who uses a TT in any vaguely competent manner.

Ive had a guy say that he was really impressed by a silk vanish that I'd performed hed seen someone else doing that, but the other guy used a fake plastic thumb, so hed been watching me really closely and I didnt use one. I smiled and thanked him, but inside I could barely suppress my laughter.

That shows what you guys know. That wasn't a thumb

tip she used in her act. It was a finger tip. I

know you've heard the term, finger flinging.

Recently a simialr thing happened to me. I did a cig vanish and someone mentioned seeing a guy do that with a fake plastic thumb.

I also laughed inwardly.

Same kind of reaction to linking rings.

Jade was working in a magic shop in San Francisco. A customer said "Do you sell the trick where you link the rings?"

She said yes and the guy asked for a demo.

When she finished the guy said, "That's not the version I saw the guy on the wharf do, he had a ring with a slit in it."

Isn't the title of this thread redundant?

I just love the discrete packaging the thumb tip comes in. Gotta protect those secrets!

I'd have thought that the packaging was far from discrete - it's probably the most integrated packaging method ever invented.

(I think you meant discreet.)

The packaging says you can perform 3 great tricks. What a shame that's all this item can do.

Well, if someone went to the trouble to, cough, expose this trick, I guess there were plenty who must have found it mystifying.

It was intentionally meant to be a twist on the word "exposed" . I kind of thought the "play on words" would be obvious.

Reminds me of the old Adam's desplay rack in the toy stores. The cello packed metal thumb tip and the cardboard stapled to the top reading "Vanish a Cigarette".

You have to appreciate her commitment to the trick, though.

She could have used any color silk, but she chose the oh-so-ironically appropriate red one.

Is there any other video of her around?
