Wrong Way by Vernet is another version of The Square Compass. Simple in design and concept the Square Compass allows the performer a wide berth when it comes to presentational concepts. The Square Compass has been used by Gospel magicians for object lessons as well as comedy magicians with clever story lines. The Square Compass is appropriate for virtually any venue because the prop itself is just a vehicle for the presentation. The prop has two arrows printed on it, and at one point in the routine the arrows starts to become uncooperative and the direction they point becomes uncontrollable by the performer. It truly is a topographical marvel.

Vernet's Wrong Way is designed to entertain children. The patter provided centers around the importance of following street signs. While explaining when driving a car you must follow the road signs, the arrows start to point in crazy, unpredictable ways. In the end the sign opens up and displays a illustration of a police officer with a cutout for the performers face.

Vernet's prop is very well constructed and I can't imagine it not lasting for years and years. The video instruction is in Spanish but with English subtitles. It is about 9 minutes long and covers all the handling needed to perform the routine. One nice thing about Vernet's version is the flexibility of the prop. You can present it as it was designed as a kid's routine but if you are do adult shows you never need to open the board up for the final reveal. If by chance you do have to entertain some kid's the option of the final reveal is always there.

Manufacturer's Description:

The magician shows a large traffic signal (12.5") that has a big arrow in each side. He explains that this signal is very important because the traffic must go in that way. One arrow is shown to be pointing to the left and the other to the right. The magician explains "this signal means that the traffic must go to the right and this other to the left". The comedy begins when the arrows begins to change and points the opposite way, both to the right, then both to the left, then up and down. Finally the magician says "... and if you don't pay attention to the traffic signals the police officer will give you a ticket" and at that moment the plaque drops open showing a police officer 38" high in full color, the face is cut out and the magician's own face shows through it.

Wrong Way is great for comedy and has a wonderful climax. This is a must for any magician working magic for youngsters. You get a special heavy board beautifully silk screened.
