In 2013 the movie release of “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” hit the theaters. If you haven’t seen the film, it’s worth the watch. You can see it on HBOMax, Hulu or any number of your favorite channels.
As the protagonist Steve Carell and antagonist Jim Carrey battle for the position of the best Vegas magician, Carell tries to revive his career after his longtime partner quits, he gets fired from his casino act, and an edgy new “street magician”, Carrey steals his thunder.
The finale shows the magic trick of the century by transporting an entire audience from one location to another without them knowing. Without giving away the movie, Carell’s team mixes a pot of Kratom tea and other ingredients which allow them to pull off the trick.
This, of course, is as far from reality as possible and it was meant to be, but they did feature a little known tree leaf that would shortly become extremely popular, for good reason. Comedy, in my opinion, is the best avenue for marketing. It hits all demographics, if it’s within bounds, impacts an audience by causing laughter and enjoyment and forces them to remember something pleasant. This is why all of the Superbowl commercials are hilarious and talked about long after the show is over.
The scene below is from the film, but try to see the whole movie if you can. It’s great.
Now, to the reality of the Mitragyna drinks. They are pleasant, can be made very easily, enter the system quickly and last only 2 or 3 hours, much like a cup of coffee. Many people mix the leaf with English Black Tea leaf to reduce the acidity, and add some honey and lemon for taste.
The video below shows a simple process that you can do at home.
