Effect

The mentalist informs a spectator that he (the spectator) is about to embark upon an imaginary shopping trip to purchase a new automobile. The spectator is asked to mentally concentrate upon the amount of money that he plans to spend on his imaginary purchase. The mentalist then proceeds to jot something on a slip of paper which is folded and dropped in a nearby glass tumbler. A second spectator is handed a pen and pad upon which he is instructed to record the first spectator's thoughts. Spectator number one is now asked to call out for the first time, the amount of money upon which he has been concentrating.

Spectator number two records the amount called out. Six (6) cards are then fanned and shown to each contain a colored spot on one side...and the make of an automobile on the reverse side. Six different colors and six different makes of automobile in all. The six cards are then dealt name sides up in a row on the table. The spectator is now asked to mentally select one of the six makes, i.e. Buick...Ford...Chevy...Olds...D odge...or Plymouth. The mentalist jots down a second mental impression on another slip of paper and after folding it...drops it into the glass tumbler. The spectator is now asked to call out the make of automobile upon which he is concentrating. His selection is recorded on the pad by spectator number two.

Finally, the mentalist, after writing a third impression, folding it and placing it in the glass tumbler, asks spectator number one to simply touch one of the six cards. The choice of card is absolutely free. The card touched is the one picked up and the color of the spot on the reverse side is recorded by spectator number two. At this point, spectator number one has freely and mentally chosen the make...color and price of an imaginary automobile. All three of the mentalist's impressions were written and placed in full view before the spectator announced his thoughts. Still, when the three slips of paper in the glass tumbler are opened and read aloud by any spectator...the mentalist has correctly predicted the exact make, color and price of the imaginary automobile.
