The Streets by John Archer
Item Number: TB1040
From the man who fooled Penn & Teller in their hit show, we bring you "The Streets." The plot is simple: someone picks a city street map and thinks of ANY street they see on the page. You read his mind and tell him many details about the page he is looking at and even EXACTLY what street he is thinking of.
The quantum leap forward with "The Streets" is that, finally, John Archer has solved the biggest issue with any book test: why use a book? People don't need books to think of words, so why use them at all? But here you change the game: you ask someone to think of a STREET, and provide a book of maps to help. Now, there's a very logical REASON to carry a book of maps.
"The Streets" comes with two custom-printed map books (London and Boston) that do all the work for you. These books are subtle works of art. They look JUST like the real thing, but these maps have all sorts of built-in features that force various streets and features. The package also includes a beautiful storage box for both books, two indexes, a 50-page booklet (including two full routines by Luke Jermay) and access to a 30-minute video download of John Archer performing and explaining the routine.
This is a full routine that can be performed anywhere in the world. The presentation is perfectly justified even if you don't live in London or Boston.
"The Streets is more than a single trick; it's a practical tool for the working mentalist-which means if you use it wisely, it might actually keep you off the streets!"
- Max Maven
"This is a professionally designed piece of equipment which looks good, works well and offers time-tested methods built-into a deceptively convincing and modern package. The Streets can turn any performer into a human GPS."
- Michael Weber
"A utility tool that will allow even those left cold by traditional book tests to craft exciting demonstrations of super memory, telepathy or body language reading."
- Luke Jermay
