Illusionist and mind reader Eric Anderson dazzled GPC students on Nov. 5 during his performance at the Clarkston campus for Homecoming week.
“It’s a satanic ritual, I swear,” said Patrice Maxwell, Decatur SGA senator, when a blindfolded Anderson walked around guessing random objects in audience members’ hands.
Anderson performed what he said is his “favorite trick,” the cellphone trick, for his finale.
It started with a member of the audience calling a friend from her cellphone.
Using the audience member as go-between to the person on the cell phone, Anderson them to have that person randomly hold any amount of change in their hand.
A few minutes later, Anderson called out a number to the audience member who relayed it to their friend.
Anderson then asked to speak to the person on the other end of the phone.
“Yes, I was correct,” said Anderson after predicting the exact amount of change. “It was very strange.”
