Mentalism tutorial magic tricks- the grey elephant
This is another really simple technique and the maths equation at the start isn’t too important and you will always end up at the same number. Personally this is where i think the trick can lose part of its illusion and its important that you try engage your audience and not give them the opportunity to think about the numbers and realise they will always end up with the same number. After that the remainder of the illusion depends on peoples common selection of animals beginning with the letter “E” and Countries beginning with the letter “D” in most circumstances people will pick “Elephant” and “Denmark” unless they are attempting to try and force another answer. Just make sure you tell them to pick their first answer and put them under a little pressure. Very simple but usually has a great outcome.
