It’s long been known that Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis were making plans to record together the year before Hendrix’s death in 1970, but it turns out they were hoping that Paul McCartney would join them on bass. Hendrix, Davis and jazz drummer Tony Williams sent a telegram on Oct. 21, 1969, to the Beatles’ Apple Records, hoping to get McCartney in for a session.
The magician is amazing, but the crowd doesn’t know it yet because when the trick starts, it’s just a tape of him having really depressing sex with a woman who deserves better, but lacks the drive to end things with the magician.
In the next scene, the woman is pregnant! She tells the magician and he throws a smoke pellet down and disappears in a panic!
Next, we see highlights of the woman’s pregnancy. We see the classes and the baby shower. Finally, we get to the big day. Her parents rush her to the hospital and a few hours later, she gives birth to…
The doctor faints and the crowd erupts in a thunderous applause! Even the woman’s father who up until this moment had vowed to hunt down and kill the magician is impressed. He extends a hand.
“I was wrong about you,” he says to the magician. The men shake hands and everyone watching exchanges looks like, “Remember Dirty Dancing?”
The only person not cheering is the woman’s friend Tracy who makes a snide comment about how it “wasn’t cool” for the magician not to be around for the pregnancy classes and “What about the gifts from the baby shower?”
Oh shut up, Tracy! God!
