Chris Angel does this awesome trick where he guesses the color of women's panties. This would be a great date magic trick.

He moves his hand over their crotch, and then, he tells the girls to imagine that the color of their panties is written on their hand. I assume that when they look at his hand, he has to pick up on very subtle clues, and then, factor on most panties being one of only five or six different colors. Do you think he looks for the girls to mouth the color subconsciencely when they stare at his hand?

You can watch Criss Angel do the trick on Metacafe -

I have seen some X-ray vision glasses on the Internet that would make you be able to see through the clothing a bit... Perhaps, Criss was using these ones. ;-)

Yeah, that would be a great thing to have for a date.
"We just met, but I have already gotten into your pants. The color of your underwear is..."

I did this to my girlfriend a while ago. She bent over, and I saw her underwear.
Later on, she made me guess what color it was.
I acted a little, and said, "Blue with little whales on it."

She FREAKED!
I think that's probably all he does. Either he uses stooges (like he does a lot of the time...), or he just observes them and looks.

I don't know of any other way.

It's pretty easy to do this. You have to remember, the audience has no idea what effects you are going to perform. After seeing this on the show, I walked around and tried to see how many women's underwear I could see just by glancing down at the top edge of their pants. With all the low rider jeans around, I bet I could do this to about 3 out of 4 women. But it was pretty entertaining, and definitely a new twist for mentalism.

Oh well, at least now you have a 'legitimate reason' for doing it Smile

It would be a great way to get slapped in the face. Don't think I would recommend it on a date.

No, girls would really eat it up if you can guess right.

Yeah especially if you tell them they're gonna be on TV.

I thought he really did it by smell.

Ha - I love the smell method!!!

I don't know how he does it, but there's no guessing involved. Criss knows before he goes into his schitck. The way this show is put together, they probably announce in advance: All women with pink undeware stand on this side of the set, all with black here in the center, all ........

This kind of effect may cause 'divisions' within the magic fraternity - some may say it's crude/tasteless. I think it maintains sufficient decency, yet ventures into a slightly more edgy area, which gives the premise some undertones on a very personal level. It becomes an intimate thing.

Jimhlou, don't forget that the show has a very reputable team of consultants working for it - Johnny Thompson, Luke Jermay, and Banachek, to name a handful.

Cheers

Chris
