Some mind reading magic tricks can get very complicated. So much so that some of them become very hard to understand which is bad because you never want your audience to be confused about what is happening. This is a mistake many new magicians make. Just keep your effects clean and straightforward and don't put more than one magic climax into a routine. (This can be done, but you'd better really understand what you are doing)
Well this trick is at the opposite of confusing. In fact, it's not really a trick at all, it's more of a gag or a joke that you could use to lead into your knock 'em dead mind reading stunt.
It's very easy to do, it is not confusing and you will get a small laugh at the end. If you have read anything else I have written or watched any of my other magic trick videos you will know I think that is important. Quick, fun gags like this are perfect to put before another longer trick. It is a warm up trick.
Remember to SMILE when you reveal to them how good you are at mind reading. It's just as important to never confuse your audience of your intentions. By that I mean if you mean for something to be taken lightly as a joke, make sure your delivery is obviously comedic. The easiest way is to just give a cheesy smile and nod your head up and down as you say the words.
This is available for you as a free magic download (the link is below). Here's an idea: When you show this to your friends they will want one too. You know what? I reckon magic is better shared with your friends. Why don't you print a few extra of these off and have them ready to give to your friends. It's ok to share some of your easy magic secrets, but keep the good ones to yourself.
