Seller: saintpol (520) 100%, Location: New York, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 253968605004 VINTAGE TENYO "ZIG ZAG CIG" (T-110) 1981 BY HIROSHI KONDO One of Tenyo’s signature effects! EFFECT: A borrowed cigarette is placed into a case where it remains fully visible. The center portion of the case is pulled sideways, cutting the cigarette into three seperate pieces which can be removed and examined. The center portion is pushed back into place and instantly the cigarette is TOTALLY RESTORED and can be handed out immediately. DEVELOPMENT STORY: Ever since Robert Harbin just performed his Zig Zag illusion, many magicians have created Zig Zag type effects that substitute another objects, aside from a woman, to be sliced up! ZIG ZAG CIG is a close-up version of this illusion that substitutes a cigarette for the woman. The visible movement (sliding the center piece of the case to one side) corresponds exactly with the movement necessary to move the secret gimmick, which makes the mechanism of this trick completely automatic. The concept of not requiring any additional movements to make the trick work is an appealing one, since it means that anyone can perform the effect easily. We believe that this is the ultimate match of form and function. This type of 'fully automatic' magic also may be seen in tricks that were developed later, such as SIDETRACK and ECLIPSE. MORE BACKGROUND & ROUTINE SUGGESTION: Creator Hiroshi Kondo strikes pure gold yet again with the 1981, T-110 Zig Zag Cig. Tenyo's earliest zig zag type illusion and Hiroshi Kondo invent two others later ( Side Track and Clean Cut). The case prop is an optimum design of pure functionality with an artistic pattern and elegant color scheme. Highlights of this piece of prestidigitation include: 1) The cigarette is never hidden from the audience's view. 2) Both the cut & restoration is fully visible while occurring at all times. 3) The 3 separate cigarette pieces and fully restored state cigarette may be examined. An impressive triple play of deception. To accelerate this outstanding effect from excellence to a magnum opus miracle, highly recommended is Kunihiko Kiyotomo's "Zig Zag Cig Supreme," routine. This allows an audience member to sign the middle section of the cigarette while it is in the 3 piece state. To further confound & perplex, you can offer a random choice of 4-5 different color markers with which to sign. When the case is slid back to the original start position, the cigarette is fully restored with the correct, freely selected color choice signature intact. TIPS: Instead of using a cigarette why not use a French fries inside the case ? You'll have a very original idea to use Zig Zag Cig in every day life. Instead of signing the middle part with a pen, as in the original Kunihiko Kiyotomo routine, use a little bit of ketchup! CONDITION: Very Good.
