Think a drink Jr. by Jeffrey Bloom of Real Magic Realm Productions
Jeff Bloom has done it again. Let me first tell you a little about this effect. Jeff came to me a while back with yet another one of his crazy ideas for an effect. Yes I said crazy this guy knows no boundaries, when you find someone like this in our business it is a good thing, he is very creative and his effects shows this. Jeff was working on a drink card effect with many ideas.
I worked with him over a few weeks to plot the effect out and make it well more to my liking for walk around. What he ended up with is what I consider a very comical effect that has played very well for me. This effect will play well in almost any setting but has served me very well in restaurants.
The Effect:
You place an envelope on the table and tell your helper you'll get back to it later....
It stays in plain sight the ENTIRE TIME!!!!
IT IS NEVER SWITCHED
After talking about how the soda industry spends a lot of money to influence people into buying their soda, you place eight cards, each with a picture of soda on the table, a miniature soda machine card plus an envelope with your prediction in it. You start your experiment after telling her, " I already know which YOU WILL choose!"
The spectator FREELY chooses any one....
NO FORCE
Suppose it is FANTA...
You then go remove the prediction that everyone thinks will be YOU WILL PICK ect...
But instead it says....YOU WILL NEED TO LOOK CLOSER!
You then remove the eye chart and joke that it says I KNEW YOU'D PICK FANTA!
You then tell her inside the soda machine is one can and it not
COKE, PEPSI, 7 UP, MT DEW, Dr. PEPPER, MUG, or RED BULL! ( note the names may vary)
Inside is a note saying you will not choose SPRITE and a picture of a sprite can! ( The drink name inside can vary!)
You then show on the back of the LOOK CLOSER CARD is A BAR CODE claiming it is for FANTA!
NOW THE REAL FUN BEGINS!
You ask if she put money into the soda machine and if you really knew what drink she's choose, what would happen?
You then dump out a card from the soda machine . On it is a can of FANTA and a long number that of course matches the barcode! Yes, you can always fairly show that the bar code to be 100% correct!
NOT ALWAYS THE SAME OUTCOME
END of advertisement

Jeff has asked me to be able to share my plot on his effect and I have agreed. If you’re looking for a very versatile effect that you can mold and make your own this is the one for you. I have performed this many many times now, in restaurant work and it has not let me down. It works great as a middle bit for all ages.

If your interested contact Jeff he is a member here on the Café.

I hope you enjoy

Floyd
