#810 The book written by Mr. Maric ~「超魔術の裏技術」(The trick of super magic)
Mr. Maric’s book
One day I was at the bookstore. I saw a book and an old song immediately came to my mind. It was the theme song used by the famous psychic entertainer Mr. Maric. He was very popular on TV in the 1980’s.
The book was written by him. The title is 「超魔術の裏技術」(The trick of super magic).
I bought the book since I am a fan of him.
What is the key of super magic?
This book doesn’t reveal any magic tricks.
He says that the key of super magic is not only the magic skills but also the presentation skills. They include the part of conversation and presenting yourself.
He would change the way to speak based on the number of customers. One to one, one to a few, one to tens of people and one to many and unspecified. The explanations are detailed and easy to understand.
One section describes the way to give a good impression to your partner is by looking at one of their eyes. (Not both eyes)
Mr. Maric’s theme music
I liked his theme music. Actually the music originally was from the song “Legs” composed by the famous English band “Art of Noise”.
Mr. Maric’s iconic phrases are “Kite-mas! Kite-mas!”(It’s coming!) and “Hand-Power!”. Those phrases were social phenomenon back in the days.
I think he is the best performer in Japan because he chose such unique theme song that sticks to your head and the catchy phrases.
