Haha wow! Pretty fun video there, and what a great marketing idea for the Four Seasons, that is going to get shared around a lot.

I really like that he combined a story telling deck with other effects as well, like the haunted deck and the glass production at the end, really gave it a more unique personality.

Agreed.  It shows how you can tailor the basic "story trick" to a specific client and then incorporate other effects into it as well.  

For example, I could see you doing this for a distillery and incorporate a bunch of numbers into the trick and then produce a bottle of spirits.  Come to think of it, the bottle of spirits and haunted pack go together.  Glorpy might even make an appearance.

If you frequent conjuringarchive.com, and I think you should, you will find this when you type in "story trick".

As you can see, Bill Malone's 'Sam the Bellhop' is merely one of a long line of story tricks.

It might be fun to sit down and think about a way to create your own story.  Perhaps it revolves around your career or around one of your passions.  Maybe it is about baseball.  The numbers 3 and 9 for sure are important, along with two leagues, National and American, 4 divisions in each, etc. etc.  

It doesn't have to involve the entire pack either.  

Just a thought to get your creativity going.
