    It’s funny that the Roots reacted the same way comedians joke about black
    people reacting to magic.

    Everyone says 37 if asked to pick an odd number between 1-50 with different
    digita

    at 2:16 hands go intentionally out of frame because dan is touching kamal’s
    left hand “insisting” on it to be flat when it really doesn’t need to if
    the point is for it to be in the fist position.

    i imagine he marked his hand before the act without him knowing.

    If you are trying to figure out the first trick, don’t. It’s one of those
    tricks that a magician does for a small audience where calculated risks can
    be taken in hopes of high rewards. He obviously had a backup plan but this
    is one of those rare cases of almost real magic. Second trick is a well
    known one so I won’t start to explain that one.

    The first one is easy, he can just put a 7 of spades in all odd positions
    with different digits, 13, 15, 17, 19, 31, 35, 37, 39…

    Questlove “Get Out of My Dressing Room!” They talked about this during the
    live show. Quest love was like “We all screamed” and one Root guy with the
    hat on that says “that was dope” shakes his head No, cause he was the only
    one who didn’t run away screaming. Now I believe it. lol

    ok I’m totally not trying to make a race comment here but he says “7 of
    spades” out loud and the camera zooms out and I see 7 of the Roots hanging
    out, the white sax guy not there. Thought that was funny. But that’s all!

    I said 37 before the guy in the band did. I think there may be some

  • Karrson Heumann 3 years ago

    I think that the guy that said 37 was in on the trick, and he either used
    some sort of algorithm to stack the deck so he could figure out that he
    needed to pick 37 easily, or, he remembered the whole deck. or both of them
    were in on the trick.

    Maybe he shook his hand earlier and he had a small piece of lamentation
    paper taped to the end of one of his fingers that he previously marked with
    a black X. Distracted his visuals and introduced himself shook hands left
    the print and then removed the lamented paper from his hand, then started
    performing the tricks once he entered the room. That is why he quickly said
    raise your hands flat and then close your fists, so the underside of his
    hand was not raised first. Any thoughts? Hahaha it was a pretty rad trick
    and I think legitimate.

    This presentation had much more of a “street” feel too it, with the shaky

    presentation than the one on TV.

    So the card one I think he just relied on statistically probable choices. I
    personally thought of 37 as well so maybe he just got lucky. The sharpie
    one I think he somehow marked the other guy’s hand before or during the
    presentation of the trick.

    Amateur tricks. The first is well known. 9.5 times out 10 people are going
    to pick the number 37. There are only so many choices 13, 17, 19, 31, 35 ,
    37, 39. When you say not 11 people tend to go look for a number in the
    middle, and avoid all numbers with 1 or 9 in it – because most don’t think
    of 1 or 9, leaving 37 as the most popular choice. Seven of spades is
    another mental card force, most people will pick number seven and he said
    guys will pick spades

    As for the the “x”, what we don’t see off camera – (when he says “hold your
    hands out flat”) – is he grabs both his hands as an excuse to pretend to
    position them properly and then uses a reverse stamp with his middle finger
    to mark the x on his palm. “Drop one of your hands” is another mental force
    to get him to drop the right hand because he motions towards it. The rest
    of the talking about clenching the fist etc., is just to put enough
    distance between the time that he touched your palm and revealed it, to
    make you forget that he did actually touch you

    Absolutely FAKE Physics does not allow for such things to happen with out
    the human that the trick is happening too, to have the human Brain
    knowledge of it happening, in other words this trick was done with ALL or
    the 3 knowing what and how to do the trick. PERIOD
