An unopened, sealed box of microwave popcorn is given to a spectator in the audience. They open the box and remove one of the three bags, tossing it to the performer.
The performer unwraps the bag, holds it between the fingers and thumbs of each hand, and proceeds to pop the bag of popcorn! A bowl is placed on a table, the bag opened, and the popcorn dumped into the bowl. The bowl of popcorn can then be handed out to a spectator in the audience.
This is the killer opener you’ve been waiting for. It just makes sense. Entertainment and snacks go hand-in-hand. Imagine the gasps of disbelief when you open the bag and fill a glass bowl with the popcorn. Then, you immediately hand the bowl of popcorn to a member of the audience for them to eat during the show.
It’s visual… It’s original… It’s practical… It’s seemingly impossible.
Use it as straight-up magic or incorporate the effect into your mentalism act. The routine options are bound only by your imagination!
On this DVD Nigel explains all the ins and outs of this fantastic new effect. The routine is broken down step-by-step in great detail, explaining the technique and purpose behind every move.
Nigel will also walk you through the process of making the gimmicks and will talk about the care and maintenance of the props involved. Keep in mind, this isn’t difficult to make-up. Once you have the materials required you can have the effect up and running within an hour.
At any moment in your performance, you remove a tea towel from your table, show it front and back, then immediately produce a full bowl of popcorn resting on your outstretched hand. The popcorn is then given to a member of the audience. There are no body loads, easy set-up, ready to go at a moments notice!
