Angry Sponges is pure genius from magician Chris Ballinger. It’s a classic sponge magic routine except, well…much more awesome!
Offer to explain the super-popular mobile device game Angry Birds, by pulling one of the birds straight out of your phone. You then produce a little green pig and explain how the birds fly through the air to try and kill the greedy little pigs. Suddenly the bird vanishes from one hand and appears right next to the pig.
Next you take a little blue bird out and put it into the spectators hand. With a magical tap of the finger, the blue bird splits into three fully examinable birds, right in the spectator’s hand.
Finally, you introduce a big black bomb bird. When it is pushed into your hand it completely changes color, then changes into three stars indicating a perfect game.
If you follow my blog then you know that I love it when a magic trick incorporates technology or social media (and both when I’m lucky). Add video games to that mix and it’s almost more than i can bear.
