This video is a great example of how presentation is everything. A kid “nailed” his school talent competition, and all he did was draw a perfect circle.
It starts with him standing alone and confident in the middle of the stage. He says, “hit it” and a curtain opens behind him showing a giant dry erase board, and two assistants. One of them hands him a marker, and then he DRAWS a perfect circle. It’s SO perfect, that one of the assistants “faints,” and the crowd goes nuts.
