Healed & Sealed rip-off again

Postby John Houdi » December 6th, 2004, 1:03 am

A few weeks ago a version of Healed and Sealed Soda was released on DVD under a different name. (H&S is the effect where a soda can is emptied and crushed, the can is magically uncrushed and resealed, opened and soda poured out.)
Magic dealers and magicians are led to believe that this DVD contains an improved method AND that Anders Moden, the creator of the original Healed and Sealed Soda, has given his blessing to this DVD. Anders Moden would like to let it be known that he was never approached in any way by the makers of this DVD, nor does he think it is an improved method. On the contrary, in the original manuscript it is advised against the method used on this DVD for very obvious reasons. In Anders Modens mind, the method used on this DVD, although doable, makes the setup complicated and the performance totally unpractical and very restricted. As a magic creator, Anders Moden is saddened mostly by the fact that this DVD seems to be aimed at non-english speaking countries since it uses no spoken words except for the introduction.
Anders Moden is currently producing a DVD under the original name Healed and Sealed Soda, to hopefully set magicians on the right track. Look at www.healedandsealed.com for news about the DVD.
