Have you ever wanted to hypnotize someone to have a photographic memory? Now, you can create this illusion using a fantastic principle applied in an innovative way. This effect uses only a deck of playing cards (which can be borrowed, no set-up required at all...in fact, you don't even touch the cards). After the spectator randomly shuffles the deck, you ask her to quickly glance at each card. Under the premise of a hypnotic induction, you then cause her to remember the location of any cards. Let's assume she is "tested" to locate, for example, the 2 of hearts and the 7 of spades. If she says she thinks those cards are located in the 25th and the 10th positions in the deck that she is holding in her hands (face-down so that she cannot peek and cheat), she will be right. Only she handles the deck, and she will turn over the cards that are located at those positions. This devious method is accomplished with absolutely no sleight-of-hand. In fact, the author utilizes this unique principle to perform exclusively over-the-phone and on the radio to leave the spectator stunned. And the best part? This works 100% of the time.
Included is the script (word-for-word) that you can utilize (performance rights are transferred to the purchaser) to amaze your audience, whether this is done as a one-on-one demonstration or a performance for thousands.
