Back in 1986 Devin Knight who performed as a professional psychicshocked the world with a headline prediction that involved theNewfoundland Plane crash that killed over 200 people. The predictionhad been held by a state senator. News of this went worldwide and thestory was carried in over 2000 newspapers. In the history of magic NOHEADLINE prediction had ever garnered this much attention. The closestthing was the Robert Nelson Prediction of the Ages but even it didntcome close to TV, radio, and newspaper that this prediction made.
Even to this day magicians and mentalists still talk about the 1986prediction. It made magic history. All this caught the attention of therenowned mentalist Al Mann and as a result he and Devin became closefriends and worked on improving headline predictions to make them evenbetter. Al Mann wrote a book called the Incredible Feats of JasonMichaels and teased mentalists with the effect but refused to tip thesecret. Part of Devins method was revealed in the rare Al Mann glass box manuscript of which only a handful are known to exist. Devin sold his original copy on eBay for $600.00 a few years ago.
The methods included are ADVANCED glass boxtechniques that Devin and Al Mann secretly developed and Devin used tofool reporters around the world. This information goes far beyond theoriginal glass box manuscript and describes some of magics closest guarded secrets.
After 15 years, Devin is finally tipping part of the secret in thisrelease. Over the years Devin has been offered thousands of dollars bytop mentalists for the information now available to you. Here is theeffect as seen by the audience:
Mentalist arrives at a VIP, hopefully a high government official with asmall clear plastic box. Inside the box are 3 slips of paper, each seento be separate from the others. The slips are of different colors andfolded. The clear box is sealed with tape and the VIP signs his name onthe tape so the box cant be tampered with. He keeps this box in hispossession and TRUTHFULLY, neither the magician nor secret assistantever touches the box again, even during the show!
On the day of the show the VIP brings the glass boxto the show. The performer explains that the box contains predictionsmade 2 weeks ago. The VIP brings the box on stage and verifies it hasnot been touched or tampered with in any way, shape, or form by anyonesince in his possession. To verify the predictions, the performer callsfor two people in the audience to come on stage. To insure these arerandom people and not stooges, balls are tossed into the audience andtwo people come on stage. The audience can see the slips in the clearbox and THE SLIPS NEVER LEAVE SIGHT OF THE AUDIENCE.
One of the two spectators names any number from 1 to 52 and the secondvolunteer deals to that card and reveals it. The VIP reaches into thebox and pulls out the green slip and written on it is the card justnamed. The first spectator freely selects any book (no force). He handsthis to the 2nd spectator. The first person names any number from thepages in the book (FREE CHOICE), and the 2nd spectator turns to thatpage and thinks of ANY WORD on the page, not the first word, but anyword and calls it out. The VIP reaches into the box and removes theyellow slip and written on that slip is the word just called by theperson chosen by tossing balls into the audience. PERFORMER NEVERTOUCHES THE SLIPS; THE VIP REMOVES THEM FROM THE CLEAR BOX, opens themand reads the prediction and then hands it to the two spectators toverify. This is baffling beyond words and has fooled some of thebiggest names in magic! Now for the killer kicker ending:
The VIP removes the last slip in the box and opens it. IT IS SEEN TOHAVE BEEN NOTARIZED with an official stamp and seal. The VIP opens theslip and reads it. It contains 3 HEADLINE PREDICTIONS that are 100%correct, and they have been notarized two weeks earlier! During thistime the magician stands on the other side of the stage, NEVER TOUCHINGTHE BOX NOR THE SLIPS OF PAPER!
The press and VIP can take the notarized slip to the notary the nextday and he will verify he READ and NOTARIZED this slip 2 weeks ago! Thearticle in the paper will show a photo of the slip and the statementfrom the notary.
Nothing looks tricky, and this effect is so strong after doing it youwill soon get a reputation for being the real thing. This is one of themost baffling prediction effects in the world! This has been held aclosely guarded secret with only a handful of people in the worldknowing the secret, until now!
This uses some of the most ingenious and devious methods ever devisedand could only be created by the joint team of Devin Knight and AlMann. This information has NEVER appeared in print before and shows theinner thinking of Devin Knight & Al Mann.
You receive the acrylic box (roughly 4" X 4" X 3"), color paper slips,and a detailed manuscript revealing all the inner workings that Devinused for over 6 years as a professional psychic, including a BONUSEFFECT!
Thisrelease will also show you the latest breakthroughs with this method.This will include how you can have an actual FOLDED CARD in the boxinstead of a slip. The folded card when removed from the box will matchthe card the 2 spectators mutually selected. This makes for bettervisibility to the audience and will PUZZLE those who may be familiarwith Al Manns original 3 slip method.
There areseveral workings given from the simple to the more complex that canresult in worldwide publicity for the right person. In this kit youwill also see some of the publicity that the Associated Press gave thistrick worldwide.
