Socks: Halloween Edition
"A fun interactive routine with a killer surprise ending they won’t forget!" -Richard Sanders
That’s right, Michel Huot’s beloved effect “Socks” (the same trick that had David Copperfield smiling from ear-to-ear when he saw it demoed at MAGIC Live) is now available with spooky and fun Halloween-themed socks.
“Socks” is a proven worker that thrives on virtual magic shows just as well as it does during in-person close-up magic or parlor magic shows. This is the ultimate addition to any Halloween magic show—even those performed on Zoom!
If you haven’t seen “Socks” yet, here’s what you’ve been missing:
Two packets of specially-printed “Socks” cards are shown. Each card has a different sock on it and, despite the fact they are randomly mixed and your spectator chooses when to stop as you deal through them, you somehow manage to find the only matching pair.
Well, at least you think you did. Until you turn over the two cards and find they stopped on two cards that don’t match. Luckily, you’re a magician who can fix this. That’s when you lift up your pant legs and reveal that you’re actually wearing the exact mis-matched pair of socks they stopped on.
“Socks” is the perfect effect: visual, surprising and memorable. They will never see it coming. It also taps into a classic moment that everyone can relate to: the inability to find a matching pair of socks at the most inconvenient time, like when you’re about to head out for a Halloween party.
