Hi Lyndel,

Do a youtube search for " mummy illusion" and you will find it performed by some kids performed along with the WORST Interlude illusion you'll ever see. LOL

Best,

Tim

Thanks Tim!

I missed this one while checking You Tube. Does anyone else have a source to a different performance of the Wrap?

BTW, was that a Johnny Gaughn Interlude? Smile

Hmmm.. not sure about if its a Gaughn or not? Maybe others can tell us. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JYoqbUiNIU

BTW... Just in case anyone thinks it mean of me to make fun of this Interlude prop, it should be noted that the performer himself refers to it as crappy. Its a brave first attempt.. that much I'll say.

Best,

Tim

Oh, the days of performing in front of "millions" in your basement. Good times.

Doug Henning did a type of this illusion in the opening number of 'Merlin'.

The kid that was playing the young Merlin would stand in the center of a large sheet and be wrapped in the sheet by two assistants and when the sheet was un-wound, there Doug Henning would be smiling.

No, that was a Jimmy Goon illusion. A lot of people make that mistake, but Jimmy's use of appliance boxes and packing foam often set him apart.

Thnks,

These kids are awesome. I just think its really cool that they had the guts to just make mock ups and do something with them. Although the cosmetics are total crap they actually didn't expose anything. They just remind me of skate kids free styling with stuff in their basement. They're thinking and trying and that's more than I can say for many "magicians".

Just 2 cents, oh wait, I actually meant what I said so I won't put any qualifiers at the end.

P.S. I think Doug did the Mummy from himself to Tony Randal on one of his specials. And Copperfield did a modified version when he turned "old" in his artist dream scene.

HOORAY FOR THESE KIDS --- they ain't couch potatos playing vid games...... looks like the built it themselves. We need more of this type of at home activity to start the next generation of entertainers -----

Now -- just do not encourage them to do death trap or dangerous stuff --- until at least late in high school....

To be honest, I'm lucky video cameras were very common when I was that age. If they were, it would be very likely a video would be floating around online of me blowing my eyebrows off with a wooden match and a couple of teaspoons of flash powder. Smile

To get back on topic, I have a copy of the Henning special with the mummy trick and Tony Randel. I'll see if I can find a way to share it.

Thanks,
Richard

Right you are Jason. They are having FUN with it and admit its not their best yet they feel comfortable enough to post it on YouTube. I'll save a copy of this to embarrass them with in the future when they are accepting some award for great magic performances.

Tim

Didn't Doug Henning do this in the Merlin clip? Maybe I'm thinking about something else...

That kid's interlude looked shabby, but the effect was just as good (or bad) as anyone's. Never did think that was much of a trick ...

Think about it ... if a 12 year old can figure it out and reproduce it with a piece of foamboard, is it really fooling anyone?

As for the mummy wrap, it can be a good trick.
