Magic download (video) by Blake Vogt ($19.95)

In this video download, you are going to learn a modern and unique handling of the age old Gypsy Thread effect. Blake’s version uses… Scotch Tape!

Piece by piece you rip off little strips of tape and stick them onto your fingers. At fingertips, you stick them all together and then, without any cover, you start to pull them apart. The pieces fuze back together into one long length of tape!

As you can expect from Blake, the method you will learn is innovative and out-of-the box. It is also practical and easy to do. If you can get hold of a Scotch tape dispenser, you can do this routine!

Running time: 20 minutes 30 seconds

Customer reviews for Gypsy Tape


Gipsy Tape is 1000000 times better than I expected. I've purchased all the best gipsy thread projects out there (El Hilo by Havi Benitez, Aberdeen Thread, etc) all of them have one big issue, ringing in the second thread or/and palming of the toned pieces.
Blakes method is beyond anything I expected. First of all, easy to do, very practical since you carry with you only your standard tape roll and does not contain the previously mentioned issues. It's an absolute game-changer, and let me ask you "Who the hell carries thread on their pocket nowadays???"
The idea of doing it with tape is brilliant, no refills needed to purchase and set up takes 15 seconds for close and up to 1 minute for a stage. Gets my highest recommendations, well-done Blake



This far exceeded my expectations. The "gypsy" plot is one of my favorites. As a stand up comedic performer this "packs small, plays big" effect allows for many comedic moments and packs a solid ending.
