You know that exciting feeling when you're opening a new magic trick. When it feels like Christmas.
You feel like a child.
And you know that often times second feeling you get, when you see
what's in the magic trick that you've paid $30 for. And you feel like you've been conned. Ripped
off. Like a sucker.
SansMinds has been selling that feeling for years.
open this product that SansMinds is charging $30 for. THIRTY DOLLARS!! You'll see a DVD (so they
could justify not selling it cheaper as a download), and a little teeny tiny envelope will fall out
with a couple tiny M#@$!ts inside. That's it! That's why they couldn't sell it as a Download?
Because they had to ship me those tiny things that I can buy on ebay for like 5CENTS a piece? That's
the reason this is a $30 trick instead of a five dollar download?!!!!! That's it??!!!!
Sands minds couldn't even be bothered for the $30 their charging for this, to send they're
customers some loose playing cards, so their customers don't have to cut up a deck to make they're
For $30 you should be including the gaff. You can buy some pretty amazing high
quality tricks for $30. How many tricks come with an entire gaffed deck for $30?!! Sooo many!!! And
they're pre-made for you. Great tricks! There are countless. Yet, SansMinds thinks this idea is soo
good that you'll get your $30 DVD and then go cut up a deck you've bought separately to make it. For
And guess what, in the performance video....surprise surprise!! They'll be
outside of the Roxy (a bar) in Vancouver showing it to drunk people. Oh, you mean wasted drunk
people might react a little more over the top than a regular spectator when you show them the trick?
Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. It's again a sort of cheap ploy to not show it to the sort of
spectator that most magicians normally perform to/for. Guys like Mathew Wright do a great job of of
their performance videos, because they show you the trick table hopping, at weddings and in all
sorts of real life environments. So you see how it could look when you have it ready. How many
working magicians are really going to perform this on a street in front of a bar at 3am? To wasted
drunk people? Cus every magicians favorite target market.
And on the back of the DVD, it
says TV rights not included?!! When you're charging $30 for a couple of m$#%#@ts?!! But you can't
include the TV rights? Although it should just say can't be performed on TV, because in the tutorial
they also tell you that it can only be performed under soft dim light. And you should try to put
your shadow over the card too. Otherwise people will see the giant line of the gaff. So, they're
saying on the back of the DVD case you have to contact them to perform it on TV, but inside the
trick they're telling you that it actually just CAN'T be performed on tv...or in the light. A card
trick that can't be performed in the light? Great!
That's exactly what you'll get for $30.
Something worth about $5. A trick where you'll have to make your own gaff, with all your own stuff,
except for the 5CENT thing they send you. Once you spend the hour making it, you'll not be able to
perform it anywhere well lit, and you should try to cast your own bodies shadow over the gaff
because it's soo obvious in any sort of light.
SansMinds better hope that real magic
doesn't exist, because I have a feeling that professional magicians have been cursing them for
years, when they open packages containing things like Leap Of Faith.
Other than those
issues....... it's a great trick.
