Pyromagician,

Is that you doing the trick....Man that sucks, there is so many other gags and bits to the trick, your totally missing them. that's the most unfunny video of it I have ever seen.

Take some time and think about it before you perfom it. Sorry man ...but WOW!!

I took the box it come with and mailed to myself so it has postage on it and I use a bit Blacken (7 days old or so) banannas. I have also used UPS boxes and they work just as well.

I know that you are new to our boards but there is no need to put him down like that. You won't go far with comments like those.

Just what exactly did you mean to accomplish with such a mean spirited post?

If you don't have anything nice (or constructive) to say, then don't say anything at all. The Café is a meeting place for like minded individuals to come and talk magic. Not to rip people apart.

Look at the Café's logo - "Magicians Helping Magicians." You'r comment was neither helpful or appropriate. I agree with SoCalPro, In the future, please think before you type.

The script should say take out the black bandana to set up for the yellow banana.

Also, I've noticed many magicians don't get the part where it describes to put the yellow bandanna into the bag then goes on to say, "What the audience really doesn't know is that you kept it palmed in your left hand". At this point you shouldn't act like your palming the bandanna that you've already place in the bag.
This makes no sense. It should be a ooops moment. Not only has the yellow bandanna ended up a banana but now you've messed things up even more because you wasn't suppose to put the banana in the bag and you did. When I do it, when I realize that I should have kept it palmed, I act somewhat frustrated and snap my left fingers like saying "darn!" It gets a laugh that way.

Does anyone know of an online video showing Copperfield's version of this trick. I saw it once a long long time ago and have been dying to see it again. I wish he still did it in his shows.

I have this and was disappointed when I found out that you need a banana for this trick!!! Why did they call it Vanishing Bandana if you need to use a banana!!!?


Now seriuosly: This prop kills...I love it Smile Mine is the complete version, no editted parts Smile But I only use it for my repeat clients Smile

One thing to make sure of... is...well, make sure your audience is an English speaking crowd Smile or you will look like an idiot in front of them.

Thanks

Sure,

Well firstly this would be very hard to pull of here in the UK without putting on an American Accent,

Secondly, I still cant see how it could be funny. I'm not saying it's NOT, that's why I want to see it for myself Smile

I have performed it many, many times...and believe me it IS funny. You are the one who take the routine and through facial expressions, body language, etc, turns it into a personal masterpiece. It's SITUATION funny. Trust us who do it. Ham it up a bit. It always gets the laughs.

Itsmagic: Great story.

Nice videos and posts. I'm thinking about doing an act with this where my sidekick and I explain that ACME Magic must have mixed up the props, but the show must go on.

Then, perhaps, at the end we see a note saying, "Thanks for buying, please enjoy the complementary banana."

Guys, bananas have infite potential for comedy. Take a half hour to brainstorm on this and your vanishing banana routine could improve exponentially.


Sad thing is that bananas are on the verge of extinction...scientists may be able to genetically engineer a solution, but otherwise they predict that within a decade, the yellow fruit will be history due to disease, etc.

Not so true ... see this link:

http://www.snopes.com/food/warnings/bananas.asp

On topic - IMHO this vanishing bandanna trick is only as good as the person performing it. I've seen it done funny and I've seen it done so poorly that it seemed as if the "entertainer" was trying to screw it up although they weren't. Over all it seems over played ...

Be Good,

Hi to all,

I didn't go through the entire thread so forgive me if this was mentioned, but here goes: Can anyone tell me who created this effect?

Thanks for any help,

Chris

I narrowed it down to either Howard Hale or Tom Ogden. Anyone know for sure?

If you're going to get permission to put this on a magicEnhancer type CD, please have each sentence the person says on a separate track so they can be added/removed if they don't make sense for the performer. otherwise the offering will be worthless to most.

I would love to have one Speaking in Spanish, German, or some other language instead of English. Then when its translated it only tells you part of the insturctions or have the spanish speaking person say a few sentences then when translated one or two words for what you are suppose to do. If anyone can make this I would gladly pay for it. If it has not been done please give me credit. Thanks
