Manufacturer's Write Up:
What if you have the ability to go back in time and erase your past? From the mind of Morgan Strebler, we present "Never There."
Imagine taking a picture with a spectator. But before the spectator wants to post it on any social media platforms, you erase yourself from the photo. An insane illusion that is done with a borrowed phone.
*No special app is required
*Borrowed smart phone
*Works on any smart phone brand

How accurate is the ad copy? This is exactly what happens
What's in the box? 20 minute DVD
Key points: You don't need anything, this can be done impromptu at any time.
How are the production values: It's Morgan talking to you on a couch. It's not "highly technical."
Is it well taught: Morgan gives you some good advice, but I would have appreciated more tips for other models of phone besides the iphone.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked): I liked that this is a trick that doesn't require anything to perform. It's a nice "disappearing effect" that you can do anytime. Using someone's personal phone and integrating it with social media is a cool modern approach. Plus it also leaves the spectator with a very modern "souvenir."
Storage? Does it "pack flat?" Nothing is needed
Does it "play big?" This would be a terrific closer to any mentalism routine.
How practical is this in the real world? (can it really be done?) It can because it works as a "selfie" or if a friend takes the picture. I would argue that "practice" is key here. It's going to mean you are proficient and comfortable "play acting" at the same time as you are "fiddling" with someone's borrowed phone. This isn't going to work "straight out of the box" expect to do a lot of "behind the scenes" work.
Overall score: 8/10
