The one with the ...

Sorry Tim, I meant average magicians everywhere and many magicians that I know that do cut and restored rope, not only myself, it's just it's such a widely known trick to all magicians so it affects many, not just myself.

Letterman interrupted so many times I had trouble remembering there was an effect going on. What did Mike Skinner show on the tonight show?
