No, Coke isn’t our new sponsor… That would be awesome though. We are running this new Coke ad, which debuts some new packaging, because it features one Mr. Justin Flom as the waiter and man behind the magic. You can read more about the ads on the Adweek site.

We brought you last night’s America’s Got Talent magic performances last night and we will find out if Blake and Jon went through tonight… but there will be even more magic on the results show because The Illusionists are scheduled to return.

Two stories we hate to have to share. First, in North Carolina WECT reports that former Santa and magician Leander Dewey Jones was sentenced to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to to charges of manufacturing child pornography. Meanwhile in Manitoba, the CBC is reporting that Daniel Kamenicky, a magician recently charged with making and distributing child pornography, also worked for the province’s Department of Family and as an educational aide.

Remember last year when we reported David Copperfield’s penthouse pool leaked and damaged several other apartment units? NJ.com is reporting that he is now suing the manufacturer maintaining that there was a faulty pump.
