Bang On!

These two words are two of the hottest words to hit the magic community for a looooong time! Magician Marc Oberon has produced what will be the biggest-selling trick of the year called "Bang On." This was one of the biggest effects and most talked-about items at the recent Blackpool Convention in England. And for good reason; the reviews and hubbub have already begun on various chat boards, and I can honestly say that the advertising copy for this product is 100% accurate with no hype whatsoever. In fact, let's recap it here:

A spectator merely THINKS of any card from a regular 52 card deck. This is a totally free choice and there are absolutely no forces involved. You explain that the card that they are thinking of is in your wallet. It is named aloud by the spectator, and sure enough, the performer opens his wallet and takes out one envelope. Just one. It is opened and inside is the spectator's though-of card and nothing else is in the envelope. It's that clean!

Many of magic's top pros scooped this up immediately and now you can, too! This is a routine that Marc uses in every one of his professional performances as well as featuring in his multi-award winning competition act.

Purchase now to receive everything you need to do the very same effect. Includes instructional DVD with several different presentation ideas.

This is perfect for any venue, whether you work close-up, parlor, or stage, and the outcome is different each and every time.

"The finest effect of its kind I've ever seen!" -- Ian Rowland

Hocus Pocus will be the first U.S. dealer to have Bang On in stock in the next few days. After Mike posted the product on our site, in less than 24 hours, almost 80 units have been sold! Don't miss out on this one, gang!

While you're on our web site, make sure to check out Marc Oberon's other released effect, "Odd Ball." All I can say is this guy has got it goin' on! Smart thinking, great advertisement, and tremendous products! We're very proud to offer these products to you, our Hocus Pocus customers.

Another hot item this week from the recent convention scene is the Bathrobe Costume Change. We posted this on the web site earlier on in the week as we had limited stock on hand. In less that 24 hours, we completely sold out, and we removed it from the site temporarily. The phones immediately rang off the hook and the emails came pouring in asking about this product and where it went. If you are interested, I have 6 more on order and due to the fact that each of them are hand-made, we expect delivery within the next 4 weeks. We already accepted 2 pre-orders and if you wish to get in on this, you may pre-order yours as well to guarantee delivery. Check out the video performance below:

So as promised last week, many new items are already hitting the Hocus Pocus web site from the recent conventions. One other product that I highly recommend is "Collard" by John Archer. These arrived early this week and have been flying off the shelves! Mike was one of the first ones to grab it for himself as he plans to use it in a totally unique way.

Speaking of Mike, he wants me to remind everyone that his semi-annual contest, the Most Embarrassing Moments promo is running again this coming Tuesday, March 13th and Tuesday, March 20th on the Magic Broadcast. His show hits the airwaves at 8:00 PM PDT, and he is giving away prizes donated by both Hocus Pocus and Magic City, including Collard, Change Cap, Interlace, DVDs and videos! Details on how to enter the contest can be found RIGHT HERE!

The weather here promises to be in the 80s this weekend, which as I sit here and type this, is hard to believe as it's cold and overcast today. I guess we'll just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings.

One more thing: remember to set your clocks AHEAD 1 full hour this Saturday at midnight.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Until next time,
