Perform an amazing interactive piece of mentalism from the other side of the planet. Developed by the master of Verbal Magic, Juan Tamariz, and presented by Dan Harlan, Temptation is an incredible prediction effect wrapped up inside a presentation of fate and temptation. It’s great to perform on Zoom, Skype, even over the phone. Direct from Juan Tamariz’s amazing book Verbal Magic, this effect is a truly remarkable piece of Mentalism that will leave your audience speechless.
Here’s what happens:
The audience creates five slips of paper with numbers on the front and back, as well as a list of temptations and times of the day. The audience member sets aside one of the numbered slips and then mixes up the remainder flipping them end for end. Finally, after the numbers have been thoroughly jumbled up the audience members return the chosen slip to the mixed pieces and add up all the visible numbers. They then use the first digit to select a time of day from the list, and the second digit to select a temptation. Even though everyone selected different slips to begin with, and shuffled their numbers in different ways, everyone ends impossibly selecting the same time and temptation from the list. The best part is that you can customize the list to your own routine for it to be objects, emotions, or any other list that fits your style.
Originally performed over the radio by Juan Tamariz, this effect is as amazing in person as it is over the internet. Expertly taught by Dan Harlan, you’ll learn the mechanics of the effect as well as a full presentation and the nuances to perform this interactive piece of mentalism even though you aren’t in the same room. This simple to perform trick is a powerful effect that magicians of all skill levels will love. This is Temptation by Juan Tamariz, presented by Dan Harlan.
