I’m a tiny little man with a big demonstration! Come and see the new stove! [ Normal voice ] Ah! Stove. -May I help you?
-No, I’m just looking around. Well, if you’re shopping today,
you get this for free. You don’t even have
to buy anything. -Well, how cool is that.
-It’s a promotion. It’s our new no-slip tray. Oh, yeah, this is great. Yeah. Have you seen those before? -No.
-Oh, they’re great. It’s like, they were originally
invented for airline travel. -They wanted something classy.
-Oh, okay, so when you’re, like, serving this tray,
it won’t slip off. Well, yeah, well,
it’s interesting, ’cause it’s — it does have
a very smooth surface. Oh, okay. But — and, like, if you put
something on, it does slide. But it’s not — it’s gonna stay to the rim? No, actually, they found
this kind of bamboo that has sort of
a static charge. Okay. If you rub the — the bamboo a certain way and you get the fibers
and the micro hairs going the right direction,
when you put something down on top of it —
it holds it. Huh, and you’re giving these out today? -We’re giving them away.
-This is so cool. This is good for, like, if you’re driving, you put stuff on there, but it really works
with anything. You could just — you know, something to hold your cellphone
or whatever you want. Yeah. Organic material, same thing. You know, obviously
it’s gonna fall off. Right. But if you stroke the fibers
of the — the tray… Uh-huh. …you can put that on there
and it will actually stick. -That’s pretty neat.
-Right? The one that’s really
impressive to me is how it can really present
liquid from splashing around. -Oh, okay.
-Yeah, see, look, watch. I’ll put a — remember to stroke the fibers, and just put a cup
right here. Fill that with water, and you can see that it not only holds
the cup from falling, but you can do
a complete flip-over, and it won’t spill
the water out. And I-I put this in the middle of my car. -Oh, okay.
-I keep an open coffee. -See that?
-Very nice. Yeah, so that’s for you to keep. -All right, thank you.
-All right, enjoy that. Let me — Let me get you the coupon for it. -Stay right here.
-Okay. Thanks. ♪♪ ♪♪ Didn’t work for that. ♪♪ Huh. Alright, I’m gonna… I used your sample. Did you get it? Hang on. It’s not working for me. Oh, yeah, the fibers might have gotten over-stroked. Yeah, see, you’re going back and forth. You’re kind of
confusing them. You’re telling them,
“Stick, don’t stick. Stick, don’t stick.” Ah! Okay. It’s a one-way — Alright. It’s a one-way,
with the grain. It has to work.
Yeah. It actually holds it using the Carbonaro Effect. Ah! Okay. You know what that is? The Carbonaro Effect? No. Oh, it’s actually
the name of a hidden-camera
magic TV show… Oh, okay. …that you’re on right now. Really? So, I saw
the whole crazy thing, and it doesn’t really work? I’m a magician. Yeah, I’m a magician. That’s hysterical. What’s your name? Gina. Gina, I’m Michael Carbonaro. Hi, Michael. So, I hadn’t heard
about the Car– Okay. This is so — And I tried
it while you were gone. You did? Something else knocked over. Yes, I tried it. I’m like,
“Why isn’t it working for me? Is my hand too sweaty?” It’s easy when you know the secret. Okay. So this isn’t free, is it? Well, the experience was free. [ Laughs ]
