OMG! This poor woman got her hand impaled on the nail while helping do this trick. I don't think I'll ever risk getting this trick!



Definitely NOT Nailed It. It is literally impossible for this to happen with Scott's method. Even if you are the dumbest person on earth!

I really want to pick this up, but don't have the most appropriate venues to perform it in. Where are you guys performing this effect? I love the look of this and trust Scott's work 100%.

Derren Brown performed a nail in bag effect at his Miracle show last night.
Wonder if it is this version.

Hope you don't want to "copy" his performance Smile

Great entertainment value/ publicity! 😝

With certain methods, especially under the stress of a television performance, we can mentally fog over due to nerves or whatever and we see once again the outcome. I wanted a method that was safe even under those conditions. Poor lady!

Jus wanted to say that I have used this effect several times, and it's an amazing effect. I have my audience on the edge of their seats, with the impending doom, and the final closure of the trick seals the deal, and it leavs them speachless. I think this is by far a great tool to add into any performance.

Just to share an interesting compliment I got using Scott's Nailed it. The woman later told me she had seen other magician's doing this type of trick and it seemed their "props" were strange looking. She told me it was obvious I was just using a strong steel nail. Smile

I've had a similar experience RC4MAG - the conviction is strong with this one!

The conviction is very strong especially with the impaling of the apple at the end.

It takes 4 to 6 minutes for the brain to die without oxygen. I can fix anything in that amount of time.

I would be curious to know how this differed from Jon Allen's Pain Game, but I already own Pain Game and it is terrific so I don't see the need to invest in a new smash & stab routine. Looks great though! John's is 100% safe too.

Jon Allen version is 99% safe.
Scott Alexander is 100% safe.

those who know/have both effects understand why.

I do own both and agree with Lseeyou

Scott's is 1000% safe, no risk of any kind
With Jon's, it's safe if and only if you do everything that you have to do in order to prevent any accident and this is exactly what happened with the guy who hurt the woman's hand

For me both effects are great and I will use them both depending on the conditions

I'ver performed Nailed It in every single one of my shows since I received it. Perfectly safe, is probably one of my favorite tricks to perform because the impact is real and I don't have to worry. It's so safe I can focus on the presentation and connecting with the audience during the trick. One of my best purchases by far. I can't see myself ever taking this out of my show.

I want to be honest. I owned Nailed It. I did in fact get hurt by it. It just happened - maybe my fault maybe not.it just happened.I did bleed ...yes..
Also I own Jon Allen`s version.
Allen`s can be shown really from every angle and quite near. I like it a bit more. Well. It still does not get the 100% because when you smash the bags too wildely in the standard version it COULD happen to flash something...unlikely but I work in Stand Up situations a lot.
I will find some solution for this and then finally I will be happy.
I also own some "dangerous" models and the best of them for me is still Hakan Varol`s nail - but this is no longer available I think (Had the small and the bigger version. This one was also performed many times by some pros.(TV etc.)just my personal opinion. But dangerous...

Jonathan Pendragon gave also good input on his online lecture...which shall not be overlooked.
best wishes,
T

I still love this and consider it one of my favorite purchases. It never fails to elicit a great response from the audience. Especially when the apple gets impaled at the end.

A reason I prefer this over pain game: Pain Game tends to have a noise issue. I saw a performer use pain game in his show recently and felt uncomfortable because as he shows the empty blocks and mixed the bags around, you could hear a slight jingling sound.

Brainman - I don't see how you could possibly get hurt with nailed it. Jonathan Pendragon's version is slightly more dangerous than nailed it if anything, and that's supposedly 100% safe as well

Also I agree the apple at the end is fantastic, and I like to casually eat the apple during the trick giving a feel like I really don't care about the danger element - great comedy if treated correctly
