A Totally New Approach To Real World Magic!

Just as you approach your audience, you realize you're chewing gum. As you apologize for the "social faux pas," you remove the gum from your mouth and search in vain for a place to put it.

Since nothing is handy, you'll have to resort to magic. With a wave, the gum visibly transforms back into a brand-new dry stick of gum! Another magical pass and it's now completely wrapped!

You can even give it out for inspection! This seems so real that the spectators never see the magic coming until it hits them between the eyes!

Comes complete with detailed instructions and custom gimmick.

  • Visible transformation
  • Simple to perform and instantly resets
  • Surprising and offbeat effect

Visually Startling. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 8th, 2011
When I opened up the package I started cracking up because I knew instantly how it was accomplished.

It took me all of about 1 minute to become good at this trick.

I carry this with me all the time.

What I typically do: go into any store. While standing at the counter note to the clerk that somebody stuck there chewed gum underneath the counter. Pretend to grab gum but show them sticky situation. Then preform.

The looks on peoples faces that believe you actually grabbed somebody else's ABC gum is priceless in itself much less the INCREDIBLE magic that proceeds.

Tips:

A). Be careful of sticky situation because it can break. Thankfully it’s not expensive to replace.

B). Every so often you will have to fix the wrapper.

C). When showing the ABC gum keep you hand moving ever so slightly so they can’t get a real good look at it.

D). When finished wrapping it, transfer it hand to hand showing both your hands fairly and OPENLY completely clean. This subtly really adds to the trick as people can’t wrap there minds around how that possible could have happened.

Easy to carry, easy to do Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 4th, 2014
It's 2 tricks in 1 gimmick. Lasts a really long time. And it's a perfect opener....perfect for restaurants in particular or walk around....anywhere that you INSTANTLY need to establish that you'll be creating magic. 2 visual moments in 5 seconds....what other trick has that?

Don't gloss over this trick just because you can figure it out. I mean, in the video, I do it like 6 times so of course you'll figure it out. But when you see it for the first time...it's truly amazing.

Very good gimmick, but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 26th, 2014
This is a very good gimmick, and it's so easy to use, plus it gets superb reactions! However, my only problem is that the creator only suited the gimmick for one specific flavor of gum, which I guess can be fixed with spray paint, but if there could be options for which flavor/color you wanted, e.g. extra, big red, spearmint, juicyfruit, doublemint for their different flavored colors, then it would be perfect! Other than that, I'm very happy with my purchase! You can make your own gimmick (if you've already figured out the secret), but I've found that a homemade one isn't as lasting as the original itself. If you're thinking about getting this effect, please don't hesitate. The pros certainly outweigh the cons in my opinion.

Flom has been performing this forever. He does it on talk shows. Usually starts with it because it's quick and visual. And for some reason, I never gave it a try until recently. Better than I expected. And you can customize it to whichever stick gum you want.

This is SO easy to carry with you. I mean, if you want to carry a whole gum pack with you, you can do that. Or, if you're super-conservitiv with pocket space, you can just do the one stick. All is self-contained.

Feels Impromptu Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 8th, 2014
When choosing tricks to perform in a sequence one of the challenges you encounter is how to flow from one effect to the next to form a natural but engaging set.
If you're currently giving structure to your performances you might consider Sticky Situation. This trick is startling because it 'interrupts' spectator expectations and therefore seems fresh and impromptu.
Its unexpected, accidental and with a bit of ingenuity you can give away a freshly wrapped stick of gum at the end.
...no one ever eats it... which shows how convincing the effect really is!

2nd one Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 11th, 2014
I purchased this from Elmwood many years ago and used it all the time, eventually I lost it and this is my second time buying it. Thank you Penguin for the coolbox price.

As for the effect, I used to use it all the time as my opener in casual, and street performances. I love it, it takes practice as always. It's fairly simple to learn, it's visually startling, unexpected to your spectator. This is a "Head On" type of effect,.. no one can be viewing from behind, but not all that many effects are ok surrounded, so just watch your angles. All in all, I can't recommend this trick enough, and at the price it is being offered today, maybe grab yourself 2 :)

Perfect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2014
I performed this at an audition and it killed! It is very good but with just a few flaws. The move to change it into the wrapper is very obvious and people think it is gross to take gum out of your mouth while performing. Overall, it is a very good trick for the price and you should buy it.

AMAZING Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 4th, 2014
Guys this trick is THE PERFECT OPENER!! Just go up to anyone and perform this trick prior to doing your other effect. Not only is it bad to perform while chewing gum, but without saying a word, it will establish you as a magician!

HIGHLY recommend this effect. and for the price, It's a steal... Also check out Rick Lax's videos for more ideas on this.


5 stars, no doubt.


Love it!!!

Something fresh to chew on.... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 10th, 2014
I'm a BIG FAN of this effect by Andy Leviss, and always have it on me, ready to rock! It is straight forward, off the cuff, and very visual. It looks just as described: you remove chewed gum from your mouth and restore it to it's previously unconsumed state, and then, magically re-wrap it. The gimmick is extremely well made and fully customizable to any brand of stick chewing gum you prefer (new or old style wrappers, if you remember the classic Doublemint look). Sticky Situation is a perfect closeup opener, and Rick Lax adds some awesome bonus ideas for handling and presentation, with detailed teaching, in this refresher! Yes... gum... mint... refreshing.... the punsibilities are endless. Stick with it, gang!
