The magician borrows or has examined a set of headphones, and pops an examined mint (Lifesavers, Polo) in his mouth. Then, biting down for an instant on the length of headphones, the mint is now PENETRATED onto the cord. It’s as if someone crossed an impossible puzzle with a magic trick… and it’s fantastic!
Mint-O has the same qualities as Needle-Swallowing but is much quicker and more palatable to family audiences. It uses the mouth in a hilarious and unexpected way. The effect is easy to learn, easy to perform, and has NO restrictions in terms of angles, repeating, making anything, or props wearing out. You supply your own package of mints and can then perform the trick ANYWHERE: on stage, in the street, or walking around.
