Pop Parade (Ian Adair)


1 in stock


This came from a magician’s estate purchase. Comes with the original instructions and all the required cards. The card showing the empty glass picture has stains on it (see pictures) and is the way it came from the previous owner. Selling as is.

Effect: In performance you display three cards, faces and backs to the audience. Cards have a bright red back design. Faces show three differently coloured drinks in elegant glasses. In your adult shows they are liqueurs or cocktails; in your kids show they represent glasses of pop – there’s a Black currant Pop (or call it Cola if you wish), a Raspberry pop, and a Lemon one. Three different drinks. Two of the cards are reversed as you get the kids to imagine they are drinking the lovely luscious pop! On the count of three they all have to suck on their imaginary straws! You accuse someone of BLOWING instead of sucking and pretend to get some lemonade in your eye. When the first card is turned around it is seen that the lemonade has vanished from the glass which is now EMPTY! “Let’s try with the Raspberry”, says the Magician. The kids suck but the drink is still there. A surprise comes when it is seen that the drink really has  gone for what is seen is really the back of the other card showing through a cut-out! Only one card remains. This time the kids suck and then blow the pop back again. They are not impressed and demand to see that the drink really has gone. There’s no POP on the other side but instead a picture of YOUR POP – a funny looking guy with a red tie and nose to match wearing a tall top hat!

This is wonderful magic for the kid’s performer! One simple move (which you already know) performed once, in conjunction with the special cards works the entire effect! You’ll vote this TOPS in entertainment, magic and value,

We supply the specially produced cards (large 8″ x 10″ in size), with Ian’s detailed instructions. Silk screened on cardboard.
