      @jack jon true but someone has already used elements of this exact trick to fool them, and I wouldn't expect them to fall for the same thing twice. Now, that isn't to say this isn't one of the best possible representations of those tricks, and stringing them together is clever-- honestly I think there's a lot of inside magician baseball going on here, he uses a few very timeworn (literally 150-year-old tricks, his elephant trunk gag is a version of a sword trick done in the 1800s) bits as obvious misdirection aimed right at magicians.
      All good magic is about misdirection, but the clever part here is there's the surface-level audience misdirection, but by using well-known tricks every magician knows there's a second level of misdirection aimed strictly at magicians and "smarks" (nonmagicians who know something about common magic tricks, "smart marks"). I feel like if he had a stronger trick at the end of it all, then all the misdirection tricks and pageantry and absurdity would have done the job better.

    I saw Piff about 3-4 years ago in Vegas in his theater and it was awesome. Small crowd maybe 20 people and we were up front. We just came from 50 cent beers at Margaritaville an I was middle of the road drunk. I forget what he asked me to do but it involved counting or something like that and all I said was "you can't ask me that I just came from 50 cent beers" and oh man did he make fun of me the whole night haha. Every time he would show a card he would walk up and put it real close to my face and ask me if I know that number. He called me 50 Cent more than once. I was the butt of all the jokes that night. At the end we got a great picture with him and the lady in yellow (his wife? I believe) and he signed some packs of cards for us. Awesome dude awesome lady awesome show. I recommend it to everyone.

      @Just Jeff The $20 showed back up when Piff tore the card.
      After having the signed card showed up Piff pointed out the card had been altered and slowly tore an edge reveling an envelope like container with the money inside it.
      The delivery man was given the money and the signed card. The only part left to do was get the money inside.
      The card that was signed was a normal playing card. To complete the illusion there was a cover placed over the back of the card. The cover only had glue on the edges allowing for the bill to be put in the middle.
      It had nothing to do with camera angles since most the magic was happening behind the curtain.

    This is proof of how much presentation matters. I love Piff, he's one of my favorite magicians, but I knew he wouldn't win simply because his tricks are classics. Now, that might sound like a bad thing, but it's really not. He presents classic magic tricks in a really fun, funny new way that is so much fun to watch. His tricks just happen to be the kind of thing that Penn and Teller know how to do inside and out, backwards and forwards.

      If I remember right those classic routines are cornerstone of magician's craft. Penn & Teller have said that cups n' balls-routine is most important as if magician can entertain audience with such an old routine they know everything about groundwork. Not every magician can be Houdini, Cardini or David Copperfield who pushed it further than ever.

      The pizza guy is not the same guy as the elephant. He would not be able to enter the room without Penn, Teller, Alyson or the audience noticing it. Miss Jade Simone brought back the bill, handed it to Piff and Piff handed it to Elfie while Elfie was feeding the elephant rope. Elfie then hid the bill in the card that he previously grabbed when Piff dropped it while not eating nachos. Not sure how Penn managed to sum that all up just using the word 'drag' though.

    • Richard Norris
      Richard Norris 10 ай бұрын +4

      Yeah, it's kinda weird, because there's only really one trick here which is controlling the three. We see him give the 20 to the guy who goes off and puts it in the modified card (then gives it to him as the elephant), like that part is all so obvious that it feels like part of the joke. Likewise him hiding the deck behind the nachos is very clearly telegraphing shenanigans.
      It's the manic bizarre performance of it that's the show, not the misdirection. And like, it's amazing! I want to see more of that, that's not at all a criticism. But it can't possibly be an element he's trying to fool them with. So it ends up just being a question of, how does he control the three to hand it off in the first place. There are so many ways to accomplish that, it seems odd to think you'd fool Teller with that alone, and he knows them both really well. He can't possibly be actually trying to fool them here, can he?
      I think, honestly, the publicity he gets from this (deservedly!) is probably the main reason for it. Unless there's some other small element that's hard to do that I'm missing?
      Either way, one of the best acts I've seen on this show.

    Some magicians come up with a great revolutionary trick that is so well done it's amazing. They spend years perfecting the moves and when they come on stage they have very well rehearsed somewhat robotic movements and patter.
    Then you have Piff the Magic Dragon. Someone who has perfected casual patter, essentially a comedian with magic props. Does very basic magic, but entertains the shit out of you.

But yeah well .. hard fooling them with a card trick. Even tho you threw in all the comedy and non essential stuff, like bananas and pizza delivery and chips, it's still a basic card force and they know it well.

    The magic of Piff is that he actually makes comedy and magic work together perfectly, he is in a category of his own.

    Alyson picking and signing a 3 of clubs was a soft force, and a pretty ballsy choice. Penn and Teller use the 3 of clubs as their iconic card for whenever they do that. Whenever someone picks a card, any card, that card is always 3 of clubs. Signing made it not matter, but still cool to see the reference.

      Piff may have planted the three but in the end it didn't matter what card Alyson chose all that was needed was a way to hide his passing the bill and card to the assistant in the tent so they could slap a second top on the card, drop the $20 bill in between, and prep it appear at the end of the trunk.

      ​@Cheesus Sliced Doubtful it's a coincidence, especially since they're old friends... a wink seems pretty on point. Even without fancy sleights, it's very simple to do using rough and smooth as long as you can convince them to keep going. And if not, no biggie--either it was just a wink and it's ok if the card ends up different, or if it is important that it be the 3 of clubs he just DOES MORE NONSENSE and she ends up with that card anyway. (I mean can you imagine adding multiple outs on top of a trick like this? You'd never be able to guess that it was happening.)

      I don't think it was actually a force, just coincidence. When they let you stop or keep going it's usually to show it's not a force. That said, he slipped the card out and put a sticker on the back, and having her count out the cards to verify one was missing was probably a bad move

    You can tell by the intro and how he's treated in this show that he's kinda just the show's fall guy. They know he's going to be entertaining, they know he's going to leave the episode better than it would've normally been, but they also don't have to worry about giving him a trophy so he'll always come back to try again.
    I don't know if it's good or not but it feels more like he's an independent employee of the show than an actual contestant.

    I don't know how this is gonna come across as, but Piff is a genuine savant, in his own right. Creativity, comedy (both performance/acting and writing), magic, timing, wits, branding, etc. This guy is just genuinely smart and sharp. Makes me so proud and happy to see that somebody can flourish so beautifully in a craft so far removed from my own. May Piff the Magic Dragon bless our skies for as long as he finds us interesting!!

    Piff is as much comedy as magic, and a master showman who keeps coming up with original trick after original trick (or at least his own twist on classic tricks). Whenever I find a new Piff bit, I just hit PLAY and wait for the magic! You can't tell me that's not real magic that no one can explain.

    Piff will never fool them...aside from being close friends with Penn and Teller he also is their consultant and has helped them develop some of their illusions. Piff is a fantastic magician but he won't fool them nor would they fool him because they know how the other thinks.
