In 1978 Joe Silkie developed the ORIGINAL POLE and published the principle in his lecture notes. Comedy entertainer John Ferrentino used the pole in over fifty TV shows in 1990 and with Silkie formed the "Spooky Stuff" Ltd. company, manufacturing the pole and other original magic. Various forms of the "Original" pole have been copied using similar materials. The ORIGINAL POLE uses all vinyl parts and is not covered with contact papers or stickers.

In the past, The "POLE" was marketed through several wholesalers. Show-Biz Services bought all manufacturing rights and the use of the names of the originators in March of 1999. Special materials and manufacturing techniques in the handmade Product were made available to Show-Biz who now has the pole (Also known as the GIANT SODA STRAW) back on the market. The original materials will not crack or peel and will retain their memory qualities.

In the effect a giant eight-foot pole is produced from a pocket, paper bag, under silks, change bag, production box or from the box supplied. The striped pole resembles a Giant Soda Straw which could be removed from a large paper cup. The "appearing pole" is a great comedy item.
