Alright...sorry to drag up an old thread, but I see the promotion is still going on...

So...I have a question that I don't THINK has been answered.

If you got a product that was part of a package deal, can you still perform with that and get the credit?? For example, say I got a DVD for free with a purchase, can I perform that effect and get credit for the Born to Perform??

Thanks!!

Those of you who have sent your born to perform routine, how many time have you waited for the penguin approval of it?

thanks

I sent mine in about 2 weeks and 4 days ago and I still haven't got approved, I think my video was disapproved because it should have taken this long to get approved.

Thanks for your answers, I am still waiting and it is going to be 2 months since I sent it.
They told me they get it but nothing about if it is was ok for the promo.

Maybe we should wait more time.

thanks

I have noticed that since a long time ago no new videos about the promotion were added to the penguinchannel.

I would like to know why it is going too slow to see new material from magicians as most of them send their video long time ago to penguin.

thanks

After many years on this Earth, I can tell you with absolute certainty:

Anything that you PAY money, will accept your money immediately. And give you great customer service while taking your cash.

Anything that GIVES you money (rebates, promotions) take months or years. A few exceptions to this rule, but 99% of the time, the rule applies.

Thanks for your thoughts,

I have always trusted on penguin work, they have allways done good things for customers.

What it is puzzling for more than one magician is the fact that no new videos where uploaded since long time ago.

It would be better if some penguin staff could tell us what is going on with this promotion.

Hey guys,

We're test-driving a totally crazy new idea.

The background:

1. We want to encourage magicians to go out and perform for REAL people.
2. We want Penguin to be a great resource where magicians can see magic tricks from beginning to end.

Our crazy idea:

Film yourself performing a trick and get the trick for free.

What?!? Seriously?!?

Yes.

What are the rules?

Ok, so there are only a few, but we're still experimenting..

1. You must perform at least 30 days after ordering but less than 60. We want to encourage practicing too! and we don't want to wait 2 years to see your trick ;)

2. You must perform for real people - no crotch shot web-cam videos ;)

3. You have to be 16 years or older.

4. Your video can't reveal the method, and it must get a thumbs up from us at Penguin. While we don't expect you to be a Lance Burton, it has to look good.

5. The product you perform can be up to $100 (on Penguin).

6. We'll be posting it on our site! So we'd love it if you give a shout out to the Penguintown!

It would be great if you chose tricks that don't have demos already, but feel free to perform any trick on the site!

So - that's it for now, but we do reserve the right to change the terms.. it's gonna be pretty crazy to see what happens. We're very stoked.

Acar


This is a really cool deal but im only 14 :cry: Can the rules be 14 and older instead of 16 and older?
