Surprise at Seicomart

On my way home from our magic bar, me and a colleague who lives close to my place usually walk home. We also usually go to the Seicomart convenience store that we pass at 5 a.m. and buy breakfast/dinner. There is a very nice woman who works that shift who is almost always there when we shop.

Once she laughed a little at my t-shirt that had a salmon eating salmon sushi. My colleague said: "Yes, it is weird, right? And he wears such shirts on purpose!"

I said: "And the best thing is, if you do this, a piece of sushi appears" and produced a piece of sushi from my t-shirt by magic.

She made a very funny face, with her jaw dropping quite a bit. She seemed VERY surprised. We explained that we work in a magic bar, and then left. Probably that was the first time she knew we were magicians. And probably it was the first time someone produced sushi from a t-shirt in their convenience store.


  1. Shouldn't one of the four sushi disappear from the T-shirt after the trick? :)

    1. Many people comment on this, and then I usually point and say: "Now there are only 4 left" and claim that there were 5 to begin with. This does not work so well when you watch a movie clip of the performance, though :-)
