Magicbox EXCLUSIVE instructions
Back in the early 2000`s Magicbox produced an instructional VHS tape that contained many routines and effects called “Close up encounters”
One routine that was extremely popular was “Elastic Gymnastics”
This is a working rubber band routine that Graeme still performs today. It contains what we consider to be FIVE of the BEST rubber band tricks around. These flow into each other and end with an impossible kicker!
BAND UP NOSE
BROKEN AND RESTORED BAND
RUBBERBAND THROUGH THUMB
CRAZY MANS HANDCUFFS
Or any size 19 bands
Includes video tutorial of Crazy mans handcuffs
A rubber band is stretched between the index finger and thumb of the left hand, and a second rubber band, dangling from the right index finger is lowered into the half circle created by the left thumb and index finger. The right thumb moves into the loop of the band dangling from the right index finger. This locks the bands together, stretched between the index fingers and thumbs of both hands. There seems to be no way the hands could separate without taking the bands off the fingers, and yet that is exactly what happens. With no cover or confusion whatsoever, the rubber bands seem to melt apart, one strand at a time. The fact that is repeated twice only adds to the mystery. Finally, the spectator himself holds onto one band, as the performer’s band melts through it.
The Crazy Man’s Handcuff”s is better known as one of the only effects David Copperfield chose to perform TWICE on his television specials, and one of the only close-up effects he performed in his traveling illusion show.
But it’s more than that. It is the complete presentation of one of the best walk around performance pieces of all time. If you perform corporate shows, hospitality suites, restaurants, bars or just casually for friends, this will surely become one of your favorites. Every detail of the techniques is explained, with sharply focused illustrations of ever movement.
But it takes more than funny patter and technical secrets to create a classic. you’ll need to understand the timing, the routining and the psychological principles that fool the mind – not just the eye – of the most critical observer. You’ll learn these true secrets of performing this effect here.
By following these instructions precisely, you will create a close-up routine with ordinary rubber hands that would make the finest magicians in the world proud!
