Not just an effect, it's an event. Box office records attest the tremendous value of this sensational publicity stunt. The Nelson Enterprises were the first to realize the possibilities of a stunt of this kind in conjunction with mental acts, and were the first to utilize it. The Blindfold Street Drive actually attracts thousands of people to witness the performer drive the car through the streets, while handicapped by the lack of normal vision. We know of no other stunt, or idea that could be placed into operation that is sure to attract so much favorable comment, and to impress upon the residents of the city you play the fact that you are in town and playing such-and-such theatre.
The Blindfold Street Drive is a front page story in every city, and a welcome one. The performer is blindfolded to the complete satisfaction of all concerned, placed in an automobile furnished by the local dealer, and pilots the car while driving along through the traffic-congested streets of the city. Thousands of spectators line the streets and cheer the blindfolded driver.
Not only does the Street Drive enrich the performer through its association to the box office, but will pay a direct revenue to the performer. Auto dealers are easy to "sell," and for a nice sum of money for the advertising value they receive. Other tie-ups are included.
Included with the "Drive" are three different methods of operation, our original and most popular method, also two others; and complete information for arranging the tieup with newspapers, and auto dealers. Complete in every detail. If you can drive a car, you can perform this sensational feat.
Now updated for the current day with even more information, including an ungimmicked blindfold method and new blindfold publicity stunts to use if your community frowns on driving the city streets. So much information is now included that we've more than tripled the content in Nelson's original manuscript with more photos, tips, and performance enhancements.
Are you a Nelson collector? This was Item Number 59 in the Nelson Enterprises catalog. Now you can fill that missing spot in your collection. Originally priced at the equivalent of $65 in today's money, this enlarged and updated edition is an incredible bargain. There's no excuse not to own this valuable information.
Spence the Mystic (Amarillo, TX) says: "The Street Drive was duly received and proved satisfactory indeed. I will use a number of these presentations in the future."
