Senior Dane Bunel questioning how junior Brodie Curtsinger did the magic trick. May 13, Bunel watched as he got everything correct, when just playing a guessing game. “I’m going to be honest. My intention was to fool you as best as I can, by doing a random assortment of colors, and I made a mental note in the back of my mind, of certain things that I’d said. The accuracy had me pretty fooled, to say the least. I’m pretty impressed,” Bunel said.

Red, black, red, black, red, red, black.

Senior Dane Bunel had to tell the magician if he thought a card was red or black, by only seeing the back of the cards, during the magic trick.

Bunel enjoyed watching the trick and was quite fooled. He believes that the magic trick was carried out, and performed greatly, even with him trying to stump the magician. If Bunel were to need to hire someone for entertainment, he would hire me as a magician. 

Bunel was absolutely clueless about how the trick was done. “Well, number one, you’re on your way to becoming a professional, I was going to be tricked regardless. I mean, you got to think about my experience with dealing with these; I’ve actually never been involved in a magic trick before, so I’ve always wanted to just be there firsthand, to see if I can catch something under the sleeve, or something like that, and no. You left me with a little bit of puzzled eyes,” Bunel said. During the trick, Bunel watched as . To find out what happened, watch the video above. 

When it comes to the performance of the trick, and the way that the trick was carried out, he thought it was pretty good, but he does think he could do it himself if I taught him how to do it. “I’m going to be honest. My intention was to fool you as best as I can, by doing a random assortment of colors, and I made a mental note in the back of my mind, of certain things that I’d said. The accuracy had me pretty fooled, to say the least. I’m pretty impressed,” Bunel said, “Zero to 10, I’m going to give you a solid eight, Brodie. I haven’t done one of these yet, and I’ve always thought that there was a little bit of hacks, or kinks, in here, somehow, but from firsthand experience, I can tell you: ‘If there was one, I have no idea what it is.” On a scale from zero to 10, Bunel believes it was a 8, with it fooling him, but having seen better tricks from me.

He only has one tip for me, and that is to make the spectators feel more awkward when performing a magic trick. “Put more of your guests on the spot. I like the idea of making your guests as awkward as possible,” Bunel said. 

Bunel would hire me as a form of entertainment for an event, and he does believe that others should too. “Yeah, Brodie. I’d be the first one to hire you, at my three-year-old’s birthday party, or probably, I would say, from three to about 15 is about the age range,” Bunel said, “I think someone should give you a shot. You got the moniker, you got the card, you just need the YouTube channel now. You got to ‘drop the plug,’ so whenever you go somewhere, you can put it here, and there.”

Bunel would be interested in seeing another magic trick. “I honestly challenge you, Brodie, to come up with a magic trick that will leave me, utterly fooled, with my jaw halfway to the floor,” Bunel said. 

Now, if you’re interested in seeing a magic trick from me, and getting to be on, “Brodie’s Monthly Magic,” or you have a friend that you think would be interested in that, then you can email me at [email protected].
