Magic download (video) by Tony Clark ($25.99)

NOTE: This version uses a mylar balloon.

In a word: poetic. The Gypsy Thread is a classic effect for close-up magic, but Tony Clark’s brilliant innovation of using the string of a balloon makes this an ideal way to close a show for a huge auditorium, onstage. Used by some of the finest stage magicians in the industry, this effect allows you to get serious--sentimental, even--at the end of your show.

The effect is the same: you break the string of a balloon into small pieces and then restore them. But the helium balloon allows the restore to LOOK sensational, as the balloon floating upward embellished the restoration in a theatrical manner.

You receive instruction on how to set up and perform this powerful closing effect.

Running time: 20 minutes 13 seconds

    Shawn asks: what is the difference between 2.0 and the original? Only the mylar balloon?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The mylar version requires a different setup and has the advantage of not deflating like latex balloons do.

    Eric asks: Which would you recommend the original Gypsy Balloon or Gypsy Balloon 2.0? Sometimes the mylar is difficult to find or is not as available as a regular latex balloon. Which do you believe has a better audience response?

    • 1. Dottore answers: Mylar is available at most 99¢ stores, and they will inflate it for you. Mylar has the advantage that the balloon will not default for a week or so. Latex has a slightly batter technical advantage, and it ends 100% clean. If you are going to give the balloon away as a souvenir, I'd go with latex. If you want to reuse the balloon over a week of shows, I would use mylar.
