This effect is based upon an effect produced by Supreme Magic in the 1980's. A clown named Tommy is introduced to the children. Particular mention is made to tell the audience that Tommy always wears a bright bow tie. The kids will begin to shout that Tommy is not wearing a tie and the magi seems a little embarrassed at not noticing. Magi explains that Tommy is a bit forgetful and didn't think to choose a tie from his closet.
A beautiful wood closet is introduced where four different colored ties are neatly stacked inside. The children are allowed to choose a tie for Tommy to wear and the closet is closed. At this point Tommy can be covered with a handkerchief, however I leave him in the open. The children are told that Tommy is a magic clown and can put his tie on in an instant. As the "Tommy" card is lifted out of the stand a red bow tie appears instantly on the clown. When the closet door is opened the red bow tie is gone.
Tommy measures 8" x 10" and the wood cabinet is made from fine woods. The entire effect is beautifully silk-screened. The ties are made of material from bright vibrant colors.
