A clear light bulb is removed from a lamp (for example a table light), which has been turned on and off, and can be shown to spectators to be a regular bulb. The performer holds the base of the bulb between his fingers and concentrates on it. Suddenly and unexpectedly the bulb explodes and shatters into little pieces.

Explosion of Disbelief! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2012
Minutes after getting it i was already to perform, I did for the first time later that night and up to date, my friend is still hesitant to let me touch any light bulb around her. This is one of those effects that ALWAYS provokes a great reaction (especially depending on your patter).

Pros:
-Seconds to learn secret
-Minutes to get down handling
-Gimmick will last a long time
-Gimmick is well hidden throughout
-Always gets an amazing reaction (normally shock/disbelief)
-Plays in great with acts (like my Halloween show)

Cons:
-I can't really come up with any...

good but... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 10th, 2010
this is great: easy to perform and if ur performance is on point the reactions will be too. the gimmick is easy to conceal. the only con i have is that the idiots that make thumb tips, or other 'skin colored' gimmicks are made with a white person in mind. no one else other than a white person is doing magic today?! come on people get with the program...

Great! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
If you want to truly blow people away then is a great trick.

The avenues are endless; power of the mind, static electricy or just pure magic. It's a great stage worthy trick and with minimal practice you will be ready to perform in no time.

The instructions are clear and concise and the trick itself is of the highest standard.

Love the effect, the gimmick is a little big though Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 21st, 2010
I absolutely LOVE this effect. I use mine in a ziplock baggie so that the shards don't go everywhere and people absolutely lose their minds. I think this is a great utility and if you use it, you can get great reactions.

The only con. I think the gimmick is larger then it needs to be. The good thing about the gimmick is that it is high quality and will last forever...but I think it could have been made about half the size so that it is easier to conceal/clean up.

All in all, great buy!

Worth it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 8th, 2015
Great gimmick -- don't be discouraged by the presentation in the video, which is just plain AWFUL.

Nice! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 7th, 2015
I was familiar with this gimmick before I purchased it so I knew what I was getting into, the only real downside being that clients complain about shattered light bulb on their floors, stage, etc. e.g. you need to think ahead and be prepared for safe execution and clean-up.

Comes with gimmick and Tiny ten page instruction booklet Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 18th, 2015
This is exactly what it says it is. When you buy this you get the gimmick and a booklet that explains almost nothing. It has a couple of presentational ideas that are sub-par and the basic workings of the gimmick. If you are the type of person who performs tricks straight from the DVD patter and everything then this isn't for you because there isn't a patter or routine.
If you love to perform mentalism, and are capable of building your own powerful routine around a lightbulb that explodes on at your fingertips, then but this now. This is going straight into my stand up and stage shows.

Not bad, not soooo easy to conceal, hence four stars.
All the same many thanks to both Mr Mesika and Penguin.
