Both the bottle and the cap cannot be handed out immediately.

Hey buddy just a couple of things I would change about your short summary:

*Full Routine ... Not impromptu (but appears so).
*First part of the routine is immediately examinable
*Bonus ... Not immediately examinable (close though, just one thing to do).
*Available only in manuscript form currently.
*Not in high quality DVD format (not yet).

Soda Surprise is completely impromptu, and you can do it with a borrowed bottle.

You have both adresses and answered my concerns clearly.
Thank you.

I went back to change the post above and it locked me out in less than a minute.

It should have read...

*Full Routine ... the first part of the routine is Not impromptu (but appears so) and is immediately examinable ...the second part of the routine is completely impromptu and is immediately examinable

*Bonus... Not immediately examinable(but close though, just one thing to do)

*Available only in manuscript form currently.

*Not in high quality DVD format (not yet).

With all due respect, the thread title does read in clear grammatical English...

That kind of stuff is important to know.
Thanks Dmann for being clear with that.

There are already way to many assumptions in this world.
Let's try not to make any "could have/would have" statements.
Besides, that's highly unlikey.
Look at their age.
10 years ago they were practically babies.

Please, let Dmann or the creators respond...Thank You.

Dmann, Thanks for posting the demo.
Woah, That bottle is HUGE!

Hi everyone.

Just to answer a couple of questions, I'm 24 and have been performing for more than ten years (i was pretty crap at 14 to be honest).

My first card I bottle, was a gimmicked pepsi bottle, where you had to 'twist' the card in to view. Sorry if that makes no sense, I cant remember the name of it or who made it. But, like most card in bottles, you where just shown the card had appeared, which to me wasn't that great, might as well do card to wallet.

I have also performed a version where I basically shoved a card in a bottle in front of the audience, and I got away with it!!! That took a lot of mis-direction, and really wasn't that practical.

With the excalibur, I started playing around with it a couple of years ago. I got the idea whilst brainstorming with Liam Montier (check his stuff out, it's good). We were trying to come up with a visual penetration. We actually didn't think it would work at first, but with a little playing around it became a miracle lol

I have used it regulary ever since and is certainly audience tested. The bottle does have to have a label of some sort I'm afraid, they don't have to be as big as the label in the demo. All normal bottle have labels, so this really isn't a problem.

Hope that answers some things

Darren

P.S. sorry for any spelling mistakes, my typing is rubbish.

Yes indeed. For about two years you been playing around with it (not ten).
And the bottle does in fact have to have a label.

I am not one to make asumptions, that is why I always asks Q's.
Thanks for stopping by and clarifyng.

Yeah, I'm not into shoving cards into bottles either.
I think it looks wierd when people do that. It definitely is even more difficult when eyes are watching you when performing for crowds. The paper can flip on you and be a real pain to load, not to mention quite obvious.

Dmann,
Are you planning to make the manuscript a downloadable pdf file?

Oh and is a large bottle of the kind in the demo required or can a standard 500ml do or will the label be too small?

That's what I'm wondering.
He said you can use other labels. But, does the bottle have to be that BIG?
If not, I would like to see a demo using a normal bottle myself. After all, I would never walk around with a bottle that large. Doesn't look impromptu.

Kinda looks funny walking around the street with that and drinking from it.

I really want to see a demo of the second part of the routine.

Can you post a video of one of your many audience performances with this, Will?

A normal bottle can be used for this, you do not have to use a large bottle
