This is the kind of outside-the-box thinking that made the "Other Brothers" so popular with pros.

Using the popular and hilarious mad-libs style fill-in-the-blanks story, you're able to make a series of predictions, with 100% accuracy of what your spectator is going to write in the blanks.

It's not one prediction, it's more like 5 or 6 in a row.

Darryl and Daryl, what can I say?

Every time I review your tricks, it's the same thing over again... "you guys are great... the trick is so simple... blah blah blah!"

Curse you two... Foiled again!

Once again, the Other Brothers have made magic simple, accessible, doable, and still somehow mind-blowing. I love these guys.

The trick fooled me when I watched the trailer. And then I watched the full performance.

Still fooled.

Then I saw the explanation.

My head still hurts from all the "D'OH!" slaps I proceeded to punish myself with for letting the Other Brothers do this to me yet ONE. MORE. TIME.

Guys. This is a great trick. When you watch the explanation, you're gonna at first be angry that: a.) it's so simple and, b.) you didn't think of it. Regardless of the brain trauma, you'll b pleased with this valuable reminder and lesson that some of the best tricks in mentalism (and in magic in general) have very simple solutions.

Ok, now that I've praised the trick, let's get to the meat and _______ and answer some of your questions:

1. Is this something you'll perform? Yes. No doubt. You will blow minds with basically zero effort.

2. Is it a fooler? Yes. And no. It depends on how well you manage your volunteer.

3. Is it worth the money? Yes. Normally, I would say that this is a $4.95 trick because it's so simple... but the return on this investment is fantastic, so I don't feel that $14.95 is unreasonable.

4. Is it for beginner mentalists? Yes. Absolutely. This is a foundation stone teaching the beginner how mentalists think outside the box.

5. What about intermediate and advanced mentalists? If you can't figure it out by watching the demo, then yes get it. I can't guarantee though that you won't slap yourself in the forehead or bang your head against a wall.

6. Are there any special moves? Not really. Not anything anyone can't handle. There is a single, simple move. It's actually not truly a "move" but I suppose it's more about finger placement.

7. What audiences is this appropriate for? I would say parlor and larger. Busking can work too if you have a nice size crowd. The point is that this would not be a trick you do for family and friends or small intimate groups where people know each other and are likely to talk after the trick.

I give the Other Brothers and this trick 4 __squirrels__. Er, stars. (I generally save 5 stars for extremely visual mind-melting type of magic... four stars is usually a "perfect" score for me to give to card and mentalism tricks and cool tricks that aren't visual.) Excellent job, Darryls!

Great simple stage routine Report this review

This is clever, and for a lay audience would play better than in the example, were it looks like a lecture.
As we know lectures are pretty flat on reaction, as everyone is guessing and second guessing methods, so a regular lay audience would love this :))

Maybe it's my handling. I think this is great, but the audience response is sorely lacking.

This is an awesome idea! Report this review

I love this idea. If you can do audience management you can do this trick. The spectator really does all the work and you’re basically telling him what to do. It’s great for any crowd. Even if you just need to fill in some time for a show. This trick is the best to have in your set list. I’m happy that I have this to work with. I’m definitely going to be using fill in the___.

Eh...it's ok Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 27th, 2019
Not really sure why there are a lot of high reviews for this. To me the video looks decent, but once you see how it's done, while nice, makes me think of the performance. This is one of those tricks that as soon as the audience member gets back to their seat and starts chatting about the trick with their friend (which always happens), it will be clear to them how it was done and the trick's illusion will be lost. Not the type of mentalism that I like.

To me it is a decent effort, but with the ease that it will become known to the volunteer, I don't think it is a 5 star trick.

Fun Trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 26th, 2019
Fun idea, not worth the price of a single trick. It feels like something I'd learn on a DVD or a book with other tricks.

It's kind of a clever dual reality, so be sure your spectator doesn't get too nosey. Even in the demo he had to keep pushing his curious spectator back so he didn't see the prediction. The one person that would especially like to see the prediction doesn't get to see it...

So a fun idea, but in my opinion not worth selling as a solo trick.

Hmm....the method leaps out fairly easily on seeing the performance but it’s got legs and I don’t think lay people will clock it
I feel this is the early version of a great trick but needs development further.
In essence (without mentioning exact methods) claims to be ‘DR’ but there’s not really enough for the on stage person to take away and so is closer To’ IS’
I’ve come up with something that builds in the concept alongside some
Confabulation esq ideas.
That said. I’m going to have this envelope in my show case with a version of this as it’s good emergency material that takes very little space.
