When luck and destiny meet, miracles happen.
Prior to our Mind Tripping Show at the Hilton, we were having fun with some corporate guests who were getting ready to go out and enjoy Indianapolis. They were a group of leaders from an engineering company in Ohio.
Christian has a signature piece that he performs. Right before the finale, the card that the guest has chosen is sitting on the table face down. The rest of the cards are in a pile a little ways away from the chosen card also face down. Prior to revealing the card that the guest has chosen, Christian asks the guest “on a scale of 1 to 10, how awesome was the effect?” The guest said that it was an “8″, then quickly added “but if the top card on the deck is my card, then I would give it a 10.” Christian in his calm, yet confident and animated way said “No problem…first, I will give you an 8″ – he turns over the single card on the table which is in fact the 8 of diamonds; “Now I will give you a 10″ and with that Christian turns over the top card of the pile which is in fact his chosen card. The place erupts in howling and laughter. The guest knew that he had just been had, but he loved it anyway. It was a miraculous moment.
