A Singapore Corporate Mentalist's Experience
A 3rd party company, which was helping to promote Domino's pizzas' launch of its new desserts, contacted me to help them in their media run. The media run consisted of their team going to different media outlets (including influencers and content creators) to let them try Domino's pizza and its new desserts. They also provided a media release and talked with the media outlets more on what Domino's was launching.
I had 2 tricks specially prepared for this. The first routine involves a custom designed deck of cards (as seen in the picture). To note, credits go to my designer who only had 1 day to do this. During the routine, the spectator is shown the deck of dessert cards, showing many different Singaporean desserts. Then, the spectator *freely* chooses a card and thinks of the chosen dessert. I then reveal the dessert they have in mind. Using my special skills, I ensured that the spectator always chose one of domino's three desserts (Cinnamon churros, Churros choc dip duo and the Blueberry cheesecake lava cake). I ended off with something like "I knew you were thinking of cinnamon churros, this is why we brought some for you to try today."
The second routine was to get a spectator to think of a frustration they had. I then revealed the frustration they had in mind. I ended off with something like "We always have many frustrations in life, but screw it, just have Domino's desserts!"
These tricks helped to make the experience more memorable for the media outlets, helped to warm up the media outlets to the team, and helped to bring across the message they wanted.
It was really fun for me to get to see the different media outlets and meet new people. Most of them also enjoyed the short tricks. The best reaction I got was from a lady from mothership. After reading her mind, she was so shocked that she even teared up and couldn't compose herself for a whole minute! She just couldn't believe that I knew her frustration. It was also funny to see how Elliot from Tree Potatoes afraid to have his mind read.
I hope to do more corporate mentalism stuff. So if you have a project in mind and would like a corporate mentalist to help out, do contact me! :)
