Jay Sankey – Wrap It Up
Jay Sankey – Wrap It Up
At any time during your show, remove a piece of gum from your mouth, place it onto an empty wrapper, gently toss it into the air…and both the wrapper and the gum impossibly WRAP THEMSELVES BACK UP into a perfect square, complete with AN UNCHEWED BLOCK OF GUM INSIDE!
Super easy! Super visual! An incredible moment of hyper visual magic! Best of all, your hands are completely EMPTY and the wrapped piece of gum can be closely examined and even given away as the PERFECT SOUVENIR! You can even perform this reputation-maker and have a SPECTATOR catch the just wrapped-up gum!
Jay originally called this astounding effect “Sugarless Gum” and first shared it with magicians in his 1985 lecture notes MEMORABLE IMAGES. Since then, the routine has found its way into the repertoires of magicians all over the world.
Whether you perform close-up, walk around or even at children’s birthday parties, this quick, easy, super visual stunner (that also instantly resets) is the PERFECT effect for you! Includes all the necessary materials plus an exciting instructional DVD featuring a marvelous collection of brand new alternative handlings and variations Jay is revealing for the very first time including:
It’s as easy as snapping your fingers! Magic that needs no words!
MID AIR WRAP
This is the original, jaw-dropping “tossed in the air” handling!
A great way to prove that you can perform magic without having to actually hold onto the props!
IN THEIR HANDS
What’s better than the magic happening IN THE SPECTATOR’S OWN HANDS? Nothing, that’s what!
Two “off the hook” effects in one. Not only does the gum morph back into its original unchewed condition, but the wrapper also appears FROM NOWHERE!
THUMB TIP HANDLING
An extremely clever and direct handling with a lot of charms of its own!(And again, darn easy!)
Inspired by a switch created by J.C. Wagner, you can perform this handling in your underwear (depending upon the gig!)
THE SLYDINI WAY
Jay once asked himself the question, “How would the great Tony Slydini perform Wrap It Up?” This is the answer!
The paper wrapper and block of gum star in a surreal series of magic moments, each more impossible than the last!
The wrapper is torn and restored in the most visually impossible manner imaginable, complete with a SURPRISE REAPPEARANCE of the block of gum. Start your own religion today!
Perfect for real-world workers, this down-and-dirty approach leaves you surprisingly CLEAN!
While chewing gum, you slowly tear the wrapper into pieces, ball them up and pop them into your mouth. A moment later the neatly wrapped block of gum appears from between your smiling lips. One of Jay’s favorite sleight-of-tongue bar effects.
