Has anyone tried this Oz Pearlman effect out yet? There's a couple things I'm curious of though...

1. Is this an actual Oz Pearlman effect? Really?
2. I've seen hundreds of effects with the same concept of "linking" two objects, is there an original effect that this is just riding the tail of?

I don't believe it is an Oz effect. Some say it is a ripoff of Linking Lifesavers (I wouldn't know as I don't own either).

No it's not an Oz effect. [rant on] Some people have yet to learn that there was magic before Penguin. (krist0pher, this is not directed at you. You were just one more victim of the "hype")

These are the same people who believe David Blaine invented "Two Card Monte" and that Jay and Oz rank right up there with Dai Vernon as the "most influential magician of our time."[rant off]

Use the "search" feature here, or on any other forum to hear the sordid details, rumors, allegations, accusations, etc... between Penguin, Magic Makers and Colin Gilbert, the originator of the effect.

Check here to hear one telling of the tale.

See the link in my signature! The creator is quoted about Magic Mints being a fake. Magic Mints is a fake.

Where dose it say it's an Oz effect.

Dave-
They also believe "Two Card Monte" is the effects real name. If Oz and Jay are up with Vernon either it's the end of the world or it's a different Vernon.

The penguin forms are a riot to read. Don't say I'm promoting fakes by looking around penguin I am fully against ROBbing and STIFFing but you have to stay on top of what the "enemy" is up to so it's more like spying.

P.s. Where can I buy the original?

Yes, it is the not so famous Lucas Vernon. Very handy with pipes and stuff. The best plumber east of Jersey and a helluva guy!

I don't think it's Oz's but it's a good effect for people I do it to.

Hmm.... Penguin has a couple of actual effects that are not ripped off but this one was ripped off. It is exactly the same as Linking Lifesavers... I would like to get Linking Lifesavers but where?

Colin Gilbert originated Linking Lifesavers. He raised a big stink with Penguin about their knockoff. Penguin did a shuffle about it, but still produce the knockoff. But remember, they do have a foundation that helps underprivileged kids.

Hmmm, interesting... Not even Penguin can get anyone to buy their "less costly alternative." I wonder, could it be you do actually get what you pay for???

The ungimmicked version? He says "it works with some of them" I'm assuming he's talking about the white mint version.

I bet Colin Gilbert dosn't.

Magic Mints are in the "cool box" @ Penguin for under $3.00. Just picked mine up after a long internal debate. Over 50 reviews on them on penguin and they're all wonderful. Of course I know the method right off the bat but still a lil' something fun to do while popping some lifesavers. As a magician you have to have little effects like these in your arsenal. So impromptu and visual. WIll be fun to perform during "off beat moments" or breaks from bigger routines. Been meaning to get my hands on Sankey's 3 Ring Circus as well for a linking effect. Can anybody comment on performances and discuss the function/details/ideas regarding the product instead of where it originated and who deserves credit? I mean .. continue your discussion if you want .. I just come here for tips and thoughts about how to improve performances and thoroughly enjoy sifting through the various routines.

If you happen to come up with your own effect put it on the market and have it stolen by M.M. or another company you may have a change of heart and sing a different tune. Knowing where effects came from and who had what first is important. You may hide your head in the sand if you wish but it doesn't help your growth in magic at all.
