The Next Uri Geller - Clips
Tuesday, January 22, 2008
Here are some clips from the German TV show THE NEXT URI GELLER. It helps if you understand German, but it's not essential:
DAVID GOLDRAKE STOPS HIS PULSE
NICOLAI FRIEDRICH of THE FLICKING FINGERS with a PSYCHOKINETIC TOUCH TYPE ROUTINE
HAYASHI WITH A SMASH & STAB
Sorry that some of the clips seem short, (and that Hayashi's is disturbingly out of sync) but despite the hundreds of clips posted on YouTube of this show, it's VERY hard to find any that DON'T have explanations superimposed by the posters. Everyone seems to want to expose the magicians to prove "it's not really magic, just tricks!". (For example, with Hayashi's tricks, posters are explaining not just the correct name of the effect, but where you can buy it online).
As Thomas Fraps said "This is the price you pay if you claim to have supernatural powers in the internet age ;-)"
I guess this acts as a warning for those who want to do magic on TV, you better make up your own stuff and make sure it's absolutely impossible to figure out.
