This is a gag that Vic has used extensively for some years. Whilst having absolutely no magical content, it has proved to be of great value in commercial situations. This is because it enables you to walk away from one table to a laugh, thereby creating a much easier opening to get in at your next.
When you are ready to terminate your stay on a table, point to your feet and say that you are wearing your "magic shoes". Offer to demonstrate the power of the shoes. Look down at your shoes and, in a tone of voice which suggests giving a direction or command, say "Toilet!" and proceed to walk off in the appropriate direction.
One little point of presentation to get the maximum out of the gag is not to turn your head in the direction that you are about to make your exit. In other words keep looking at your feet, while they turn to face the appropriate direction and start to move.
Vic says that one of the spin-offs from this particular gag is that often, when he walks up to a table, somebody will ask if he is wearing his "magic shoes". This tips him off to the fact that he has worked for this particular group before.
