Explosive Mentalism

Posted on January 15, 2008 by chris ballinger There have been 3 comment(s)

We have a new mentalism effect in the store and it's a lot of fun. The effect is this. You take a light bulb - ANY light bulb and concentrate on it. It unexpectedly explodes with a loud pop and shatters to the floor. Original Exploding Light Bulb comes from the creative mind of Yigal Mesika (Loops, Spider Pen, Electric Touch) and Elian Agaian (Final Book Test). And it is quickly becoming my favorite mentalism routine.

This effect has its limitations, as there are glass shards involved, I wouldn't recommend it for a restaurant show; but it is great for the street, stage, parlor, or impressing your friends and coworkers. The sound of the explosion gets attention and if you build it up, it can be very startling. No one expects the light to actually explode, so when it happens there is an instant audience reaction.

The method is so simple and so well thought out that it is reminiscent of a classic magic effect. The light can be examined and turned on before the effect. You can even go into someone's house and borrow one of their lights. You never have to touch the glass of the bulb and there are no fishy moves before the explosion.

NOTE: This effect involves real shattered glass. It is not intended for minors and is recommended for professionals only. Precautions must be taken to avoid harming performer and audience.
