Its very real but you just haven't seen the full clip ;)

look in her hand (it looks like she is holding a pen and paper) if it isn't he has extracted the data long before (via a peek or some other method) and the view we get is after the data extraction process has taken place, the rest is acting and basic cold reading very simple.

Why does a magic/mentalism effect have to sell itself like an infomercial?

He has done some nice marketing that's for sure. Wondered how legit is this? The overall Image is quite cool.

I can do the same thing with a peek wallet, billet tear, or 983982349834 other methods.

I have it on good authority that this "technique" is actually Millard Longman's Acidus Novus peek. Repackaged and misrepresented.

It is a copy of a certain effect that came out almost forty or fifty years ago. The effect IS misrepresented in the video. Before what you see, the spectator writes the word on a card and folds it up. This effect is still EXTREMELY good and gets a great response from an audience. It definitely needs a lot of practice, and is WAY overpriced.
