An impossible prediction effect!
The classic mentalism effect is now available as a video download!
A clear wine glass is seen on a table center stage, containing a black envelope with a prediction. The spectators are asked to concentrate on a single thought and to write it down on a card and seal it in an opaque envelope. At your command, they all throw their envelopes onto the stage. A random spectator selects any one of the envelopes (again: NO force!). Let’s assume the thought inside reads “ICE CREAM”. She removes the prediction from the glass and opens it. She reads the prediction out loud: it matches the freely selected thought!
Now for the FINAL kicker: the lady is asked to open up the crumpled paper ball that was used to randomly select her as a volunteer. It reads: “Tonight, a beautiful lady called Annie will think of ICE CREAM!”
The spectator is randomly selected
No switch of the paper ball
No secret assistants
They can really write down any thought
The other envelopes all contain different words
The spectator opens and reads the prediction herself
Prediction and envelope, both are completely unprepared
