Description

A song prediction effect with a borrowed phone.

Here's what happens:
- You ask a friend to take out their phone, mute the volume and open YouTube.
- You then take your friend's phone and play a song, returning the phone to your friend with its screen facing downwards.
- Now you apparently mentally transmit the thought-of song to your friend.
- Your friend names the first song that comes to mind, turns the volume up on their phone and looks at the screen to hear and see that your prediction was correct - that exact song is playing on their phone!

The video (and of course their phone) can be thoroughly inspected after the routine with NOTHING to find!

* Very easy to perform.
* No accomplice required.
* Any song can be named.
* No memory work.
* Works in multiple languages.

Rather than songs or music videos, you can use movie trailers or anything that you like!

* Works with multiple services - not just YouTube.
* Supports notifications for additional confirmation!
* Incredibly deceptive input methods.

Video and audio broadcasting of any description (including TV, radio and Internet) of this effect is prohibited without the written consent of its creator.
