The Fortune Tellers Prediction
Item Number: TA6785
The Magic Tale:
The magician shows the audience a large, old, tattered envelope with a hand written note attached. He explains that he received this mysterious envelope from Lulu - an Italian gypsy Fortune Teller who gave him a reading 10 years ago. He then requests a volunteer to whom he says: "Lulu told me that inside this envelope we will find her picture, holding the exact card that you'll select in a minute ... but if it doesn't work, don't blame me. It's her prediction and I've never ever opened this envelope. How's your Italian? Not so hot? Well, as Lulu knew no English, looks like I'm going to have to translate it for you."
Whilst translating Lulu's note the magician asks the volunteer to select a card. Finally, he opens the envelope and extracts Lulu's card. Showing only the top side of the card, he exposes Lulu holding all 52 cards of the pack in beautiful fans. As the audience laughs derisively , he turns the Mega-Card over to show Lulu now holding only the volunteer's card!
This trick is a wondrously illustrated version of the well known "52-on-One" principle.
You simply have to force a card.
The fascination is in the entertaining story with the surprising PUNCH on the Mega-Card
