TORNADO = How Similar to "French Kiss?"

I have the original DVD for "French Kiss" (by Wayne Houchin) and this seems very similar. I like the fact that with "French Kiss" you don't need any special gaffs or refills, and, (if you're daring enough with whatever woman you happen to meet - as Wayne Houchin is in a few of his live examples) you can actually get into that woman's personal space and approximate something close to a kiss - for an actually legitimate reason (obviously only if she's okay with it). "Tornado" just seems (to me) like a toned down version of French Kiss. Any opinions from guys who have both?

They are completely different effects. The methods and routines aren't all that similar at all. Tornado is a transposition of 2 corners from 2 cards. You only use 2 cards. The sleight of hand is extremely easy to do, the gaffs do all the work.

With French Kiss there is preparation and some sleight of hand to be done. If I'm honest the sleight of hand for French Kiss is a bit more difficult. That's fine though because the transposition between 2 cards inside of someone's mouth is a great effect!

They are just different, they each have pros and cons. I've seen them both kill.
