Hey guys, I just noticed that on the Hellstromism episode, when he does the thing with those girls where he has 6 items layed out, and he names all of them outloud, and when the spectator hears the item they are thinking of outloud, they invision a StopSign shooting out of the ground... well, after the girl told CA that he was wrong, and told him that it was the Black Watch, when CA goes to touch the silver watch that was next to the Black Watch, the black watch is gone... I think he classic palmed the black watch and did a different trick to them where the watch ended up in his pocket or something... but the cameras didnt show that...
Did any one else catch this?
That was just buildup Vinnie. He does it in every episode. He always does something to try to add drama to the big stunt or effect he is building up to. He tries to make the audience think “hmm, I wonder if he'll be able to pull this off??”. Take these examples:
Barrel Escape: He was raised and then lowered twice because of problems before actually completing the escape.
Fishhooks: He went through mental struggles and had to be lowered down during practice hangings.
Burned Alive: The test burn on his arm was much hotter than he anticipated, and he had doubts.
Suv Nail Bed: The first time he lays on the nails, there is some bleeding.
Hellstromism: He fails in a mental effect just before the big challenge.
So you see, it's all about shomanship and building the climax of the show.
