HUG is the new "Thumbs up, Go like this" opener taken to a whole new level of visual madness.
"HUG is a DVD with a collection of 6 effects. 5 of these effects are new, fresh and astonishing body illusions that you can perform anytime anywhere. In February 2008 I decided to perform HUG for some reporters of a National Newspaper of my native country (El Salvador) The Journalists were very impressed and made a nice article about me; and as a result of my HUG performance they gave me a "title", a title I had never expected to get, this "title" was something that I had never claimed to be, but they gave me that title because that was what they thought of me after seeing my performance; they called me: "An Expert in Contortion". Nowadays, I use HUG as the opener for my Show. The DVD also includes a mentalism routine with the ploy "Hugging a person" This mentalism Routine is the one I use as a link between my opener and the rest of my mentalism show."
The 5 Body illusions are totally impromptu, easy to do and they will look as if you can penetrate parts of your body through others parts of your body in a very visual way. The mentalism routine requires a fast and easy set up and it plays huge.
1) Arms Through Body
2) Hands Through Neck
3) Sleeveless Arm Twist
4) Arms Through leg (3 Variations Included)
5) A Jacket Levitation
6) A bonus Mentalism HUG Routine

- Guy Bavli
"Hug is one of those offbeat effects that many entertainers will start using straight away as a modern, more deceptive alternative to the much overused old version. You can involve a whole audience, or a single person with no prep, no set up and nothing required. What more could you want. It's a great piece to have in the back of your mind for when you just need to do 'something' to impress people as you can go straight in to HUG with a moment's notice and still blow people away with a visual penetration of your own body."
- Ken Dyne (Mentalist and HUG Fan)
"I can see every magician around the world performing these illusions for generations. This will make history."
"Hug is what I would call the perfect anytime, anywhere, effect. It is visual and stunning, and creates that magical moment of astonishment without cards or coins, just you and them. Hug will have them thinking for a very long time!"
- Justin Miller
"This will definitely freak people out"
- Dan Hause
"I was impressed with what you've developed with HUG, a visually stunning piece of any time, any place magic. And, the fact that it can involve the entire audience certainly makes it a rare effect in the world of magic. Well done!"
- Michael Grandinetti
"A natural, and logical step in an old gag that takes it and kicks up to date sharply and quickly! You WILL perform this."
