I know this is wrong, but as a funeral director and magician I can only laugh!

During the Limbo Dance, the question is asked, "How low can you go?"

Well, now I know.

This is IMHO lower than any Limbo dance can go. Many people will not be amused by this.

Just retired from the AF and returned to my hometown after almost thirty years. When I left I was well-known for my magic. Since returning home I've been to two funerals and bumped into old friends. Each time they asked if I "was still into magic" and could I show them something. Naturally I declined but it was a very awkward situation.

I am sorry to say, but I found the video hysterical. My father had a twisted sense of humor and it sort-of rubbed off. I already shot the video to some of my friends who I thought would find it funny. It is so wrong, yet so funny. Thanks for sharing.

Bill Murray did a SNL skit where he did magic tricks at the funeral service. Very funny.

I have a somewhat different view on death that many I know... that aside... it's a funny spoof of how far infomercials can go to try and make the absurd seem like a good idea. Smile

I think the spoof is great. I don't think many would take it seriously and consider performing at a funeral, but then again, some people seem to have been born without the humor gene.

I found this hilarious. Thanks for sharing!

What could possibly follow in its wake?
Magic is the bacon in the breakfast of life.

Now THAT is a real groaner, Preston! LOL! Definitely an excellent play on words, though, and I must admit that I'm a sucker for word play and puns in general.

Actually, the "How low can you go" question gets answered approximately one hour after the performance...when the casket is buried 6 foot down. (badda-bim; badda-boom)

"Signed Prayer Card to Impossible Location" had me laughing out loud. Thank God that I wasn't drinking a Pepsi when I saw that.

"I have people calling me all the time wanting to know when the next funeral is. The place is packed; I use this as an up-sell." comment was so dead on. (Sorry, no pun intended) That up-sell mind-set is exactly what the funeral parlors do when the grieving party is so very vulnerable.

I found the entire video to be a brilliant bit of satire.

Brad, thanks for sharing this youTube link.

P.S. Who are the two main characters in this video? I know that I should know their names, but I don't.
Magic is a vanishing Art.

This must not be Kansas anymore, Toto.

Eschew obfuscation.

I think it's a fantastic satire on the funeral industry and infomercials, both of which richly deserve to be satirized.
