Re: Michael jackson gifs
Short video snippet of Michael with illusionist Franz Harary in 1984.
This was on the stage of the Michael Jackson Victory tour.
It was the start of my career and a magical friendship that would last 26 years.
I remember this moment as if it was yesterday. We were in Atlanta Georgia. We were testing a new illusion I had just created.
(I was 21 years old and way out of my league, but doing my best to keep up.) Michael loved magic and we played around with new illusions all the time. After the tour finished we remained friends and created some pretty amazing illusions, one of which remains in my own live show today.
The moment that this picture was taken, Michael pulled me aside and said.. " When we get to LA. I wanna do some cool magic with a tiger".
I replied "no problem" when the truth was, I had no idea where to get a tiger or how to make that happen.
I also remember that I was not as afraid of working with a wild animal as I was of going up to the production manager and telling him that Michael wanted to do this very difficult stunt.... and that it was HIS idea, and not MY suggestion.
