The Impossible Dream...
The Impossible Nightmare
This FISM award winner is available again!
The magician asks a spectator to cut three 4-foot lengths of rope from an ordinary hank of rope. Two audience volunteers handle the ropes several times, thus assuring the audience that the three ropes ae just what they appear to be.Yes, unmistakably ordinary, separate, and of equal length. The magician then performs some initial basic magic with the three ropes.
Suddenly the three ropes become transformed to three unequal ropes. The magician then explains that he only made the ropes appear to be unequal. He lets the audience in on the simple 'secret' (don't worry, no real secrets are actually exposed)
No sooner does the audience finish chuckling at how easily it had been deceived, than the ropes are shown to be actually unequal. Yes, unmistakably separate and unequal.
Just as the audience gets over this shock, the three ropes suddenly become equal once again. Yes, unmistakably separate and equal. The routine has come full circle, and after performing some more magic with the same three ropes, the magician hands them out as souvenirs for examination.
Effect includes rope and instruction booklet.
