Hi wizards!

I have been asked to appear on national TV to perform a magic with football.

I thought of doing a card in football effect but figured it wouldn't be nice cutting up a football on TV.

Other effects would be Mentalism related stuff like predicting favorite football team, etc.

However they were looking towards more of magic related effects.

Would appreciate if some of you could chip in your ideas :)

Thank you, friends!

Zlwin, which country are you performing in? Malaysia?

Deception Stunts,

Yes, in Malaysia. The show was recorded already and will be aired next week. When I get a copy of it, I will post a link here.

I did a very simple magic and it was so much fun. I sometimes forget how the simple magic can floor people.

Please do post the link!

Somewhat related, maybe off-topic... but I remember back in the late 80s (or possibly 1990), they had a magician perform during the halftime show of the Superbowl (American Football). The general gist of the effect was that the magician "predicted" what the audience (50,000+ screaming football fans) would pick by registering the amount of applause. The "reveal" of the prediction was fantastic - on the bottom of everyone's seat was the prediction (choice #3 out of a list of 4 choices IIRC), and of course, he got it right.

I believe I know how he pulled this one off, having to do with the psychology of large crowds. At any rate, I doubt I would ever be brave enough to try something like that on such a grand stage!

Guyjr,

Wow that sounds amazingly ballsy. I would love to see a video of it. He better had a backup if it didn't work haha.

My episode has been aired on TV. In a week's time I will be getting a copy of it which I can upload on YouTube. Will let you know when I have done so. :)
