When most tricks are over, they’re over. BUT NOT MISMATCH. MisMatch lives on - not just in your friends’ brains…but IN THEIR HANDS.
You TEAR a match from a matchbook. Then you rip the match in half. Then you magically restore it…BACKWARDS. Meaning the match head is now IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MATCH.
Seriously. It’s ON THERE. Right there in the middle. And, yes, you can light the match. Or give it to your friend to light. It’s a truly impossible object that your friends can keep forever.
When you buy MisMatch, you’re not only going to learn how to create the match gimmick and Nick’s easy-to-do street restoration (as seen on the demo); you’ll also learn an INCREDIBLY VISUAL match restoration, originally used by Tom Mullica to restore a broken cigarette. (Taught with permission.)
In addition, you’ll learn a totally different, visual way to make a torn match head jump from the match’s middle back up to the top. (This method is taught by me [Rick Lax here] and is PERFECT for strolling magicians who want to perform this effect many times each night.)
In conclusion: COME ON, PEOPLE! IT’S AN IMPOSSIBLE OBJECT ON FIRE! WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?!?!
