Thank you all for such kind words.
When and where do I accept my award for "worst magician EVER"? I assume I will be receiving the "worst trick EVER" award as well. All I can say is "WOW"! I am going into a box for a few weeks to work on my next release... stained underpants!
Seriously folks... I showed this to many people over the last year and I wouldn't have released this trick if I thought it was bad. I am not trying to hurt my reputation on purpose.
Rather, let me address what I expect may be the real issue... you are all wrong! Just kidding.
When I showed this to Paul Wilson, we were at a coffee shop during the day. No one was drinking, I think. He loved the idea and we discussed the 8 or 9 routines I had developed with this trick. He also offered a few new ideas. The same thing goes for the rest of these guys. I didn't pay anyone for their comments... except "The Grate Sardini" whose comments I didn't even use to promote the trick... and I only paid him in Vodka because he is Russian.
There is one thing for certain... the videos of this trick suck! I was in a rush to put this on video to accommodate the distributors of the trick. There were angle problems and I had to change the routines to accommodate them being video taped. I have since asked for the videos to be taken down until I can put up something better.
That being said, I want you all to know that I have been performing these routines for people for a while and the reactions have been great. I have fooled some really well known magicians with it, but for the most part magicians know how it's done. They also think it's very clever and has many possibilities. Since this is a new effect, words passing through glass, I figured there would be some magicians that hated it. There are some magicians that hate everything! As for lay people...
Almost everyone, non magic, is completely fooled by this trick. Not only that, but they love it, remember it, and ask me to do it for their friends. You may say, "How could anyone be fooled by this?" Remember, you are a magician.
Cut me some slack here boys. I am not trying scam anyone and I'm certainly not getting rich here. If you buy this trick from my website and don't like it for any reason, I'll give you your fifteen bucks back. I think that once you get it and do it for some real people, you will see. http://www.adamgracemagic.com
Now I must change my pants.
