We have sung the praises of Magician and Proprietor of Magic Meir Yedid (@MeirYedid) for years on this august website.
He is to magic dealers what Tiger Woods is to golf. Perfection is found on his pages delivered weekly to lucky mailboxes around the globe. He provides magic effects not found on other dealers’ sites and usually has an interesting story to tell about how they came into his possession.
Today, Mr. Yedid sent an electronic mailing offering the usual great stuff at great prices and included within those two general categories was his own Gambler’s Ways video. He describes it thusly:
This week’s video download is a routine I have been performing and refining since I was a teenager. It was one of the hits of my Gene Maze Tribute lecture that I debuted last year and was one of the main reasons I sold so many of the lecture videos. Today I am releasing it to you. But I must warn you that it is not easy to master. I got a big laugh during the explanation when I said, after doing all the sleights, “…and the rest is self-working.” Watch the video performance and see if it is for you. The presentation I believe is original with me and allows for imperfect false deals since it is supposed to be a practice session.
We know what you’re thinking and specifically what you’re thinking about this offer by Mr. Yedid: “Mr. Inside Magic Man, are you getting a cut of the sales revenue by promoting this video offer?” “Mr. Inside Magic Man, how can I as a person who makes $X.00 amount of money a week afford such a video?”
First of all, nope. We’re not making any money from the deal or any of the promotions or ads or mentions on InsideMagic.com. That is why we keep our night job as a caddie at the mini-golf course in Pasadena.
Second of all, you can! The price for this instructional video is not $100.00 (although that would be a reasonable amount); not $50.00 (which would still be reasonable and do-able); or even $25.00 (an amount that most videos of this type sell for).
Nay, the price is $5.00 USD. That is less than the price of a coffee from most any barista (except for the freelance barista who walks in the alley behind our apartment over top the bakery for dogs). That is the same price as a five-dollar bill. That is less than the cost of a gallon of premium gas in Los Angeles.
Please note though, this deal only lasts until February 4th so you best get going.
As the archery instructor once told us (we think he was an instructor) “you get the point.”
Check out Mr. Yedid’s site and enjoy our wonderful magic life celebrated in weekly emails by a great guy and fantastic magician.
