Turn your head 360 degrees around!
This funny illusion was invented by Joe Karson in the 40’s of last century under the name ‘The Rubbeneck Illusion’.
It is fit for adult as well as for (older) children shows.
Can be done with yourself or with an assistant.
The assistant puts her head in a small box that sits on her shoulders.
Her face is clearly seen on the front.
It’s a tight fit, no room to move around or even wiggle her head.
Then the magigian grabs the massive handle on the top of the cabinet and twist the crank.
The assistant’s head appears to twist completely around several times!
After that the magician twists her head back in the opposite direction (as to “untwist” it).
Only then the headtwister can be put off and the assistant can be showed to be unharmed, with her head back to the normal position!
- You can even perform this illusion surrounded!
- It is super deceptive. NO fake head is used!
- NO mirrors!
- This is a a great illusion that you can combine with the Flying Mask Deluxe that your audience won’t forget!
Note: You need your own assistant for this, and he/she will need to practice this effect.
