The magician displays five mummy cards. He
closes the sarcophagus lid of one mummy to prevent
him from escaping (i.e., the card is turned face-down, showing
the closed sarcophagus on the back) and places that mummy aside.
The magician shows the four remaining mummies again. Then, one by
one, the sarcophagus lids are magically closed to prevent the
mummies from escaping.
The audience joins in an ancient Egyptian ritual to ensure that
the mummies are bound for eternity. Jock - Ooo - ZEE
is chanted over and over. The cards are shown again. The audience
sees that the sarcophagus lids have reopened and the mummies have
all escaped! Only a small heap of bandages remains in the bottom
of each sarcophagus.
The magician explains that the wrong chant was accidentally used.
That was the Jacuzzi chant. He turns over the card that was set
aside previously to reveal that all the mummies have transported
there and are now enjoying a relaxing dip in a hot tub!
Great for Halloween or any time of year! The
mummies dont have to be portrayed as monsters.
