Looch – The Article
Welcome to ‘The Article’, the method I used to fool the Police and a room full of journalists! The Article is a custom built A5 sized Clipboard that enables you to predict headlines and outcomes of events anywhere in the world.
It was initially designed as a method for publicity stunts but it can also be used in parlour and stage work. In performance you hand over a sealed padded envelope to someone for safekeeping until its time for your performance. When time, the padded envelope is brought forward and verified that no one has been in contact with it other than the person it was given to. The performer cuts open the very end of the envelope revealing a clipboard inside. The participant themselves reaches inside and grips the clipboard and the envelope is pulled away showing it to be completely empty.
The participant themselves turns the clipboard around showing a piece of paper clipped in place with a single envelope attached to the paper. The participant opens the envelope and the contents removed. Inside is a 100% match of any prediction you chose.
The Article can be used for publicity stunts, headline predictions, confabulation, and climax predictions to your show. You can even use the paper the envelope is attached to pre write other pieces of information that might appear during your show!
You will receive your custom built Clipboard and gimmicks, a eBook detailing the history and original method used to fool the police as well as access to a high quality online video, professionally filmed discussing the method, instructions, loads, reveals and much more.
