The Envelope Game by Matt Mello
An extremely realistic demonstration of subliminal suggestion!
Effect: The performer shows two envelopes, one with a question mark, and one that’s blank?each suggestive in its own way. A spectator is asked to touch one, and is then given the chance to change their decision, bearing in mind some new information. You then let them in on your ‘subliminal’ suggestion, and allow them to switch envelopes should they wish, now that they can see your supposed “influence”. No matter what they decide to do…you always win!
The subliminal secret you learn and teach is SO cool…and a second subtlety at the end creates the illusion that you use subliminal influence ALL THE TIME! Utilized correctly, The Envelope Game will strengthen your reputation, and make you very believable as a thought manipulator!
Sadly, due to the main subtlety used here, this effect will only work in English!
