Uri Geller sends positive vibes through Joe Bloggs
URI GELLER is collaborating with casualwear company Joe Bloggs to produce a line billed as the first interactive clothing range.
Each piece in the T-shirt collection will be touched by Geller and features an orange dot which consumers are urged to touch at 11.11 am or pm on the first day of each month to benefit from Geller’s positive energy. A hotline is being set up to log the results.
“Clothing is a terrific vehicle for giving people energy, plus it is entertaining and quite bizarre,” says Geller.
Bloggs managing director Shami Ahmed adds: “We are always interested in doing positive things and covering areas that have never been covered before.”
There are plans to add to the T-shirt range with more casualwear pieces. Ahmed says: “It is not a one-off, we will be building on the range with more products such as jeans, jackets and sportswear.”
The line is aimed at department and jeanswear stores for April delivery and will be backed by point of sale, window displays featuring bent spoons and store visits.

A style for power from Uri
FORGET yesteryear’s shoulder pads. This gives a whole new meaning to power dressing.
Joe Bloggs is launching a ‘paranormal’ clothing range with Uri Geller. And they don’t come much more paranormal than him.
Each garment will feature the ‘power colour’ orange in a circle and a ‘power message’ including ‘Mind Bending’, ‘It’s Me’ and ‘Touch and Concentrate’.
“Uri will be empowering all products, personally touching them before they hit the shop floor,” a spokeswoman solemnly assures us.
On the first day of the month at 11.11am or pm ( a ‘mystic’ time, you understand) Uri will send positive energy to the wearer by focusing his powers.
Cyclist Bruce Bursford broke the world record while wearing just such a T-shirt. Could it possibly-do the same for you?
As soon as Edie of Ab Fab gets wind, Lacroix will be ditched to make room in the wardrobe.
Got that, Sweetie?
Paranormal T-shirt from the Joe Bloggs Uri Geller range, £17.99. Stockists will include Fosters and Debenhams, early dispatch May, wider distribution, July.

“There is no spoon!”
“The world needs your amazing talents. I need them”
“Uri Geller gave an absolutely resonating talk on his life and career. He had every single magician in the room on the edge of their seats trying to digest as much information as they could. Uri emphasized that the path to frame is through uniqueness and charisma and that professional entertainers must be creative in their pursuits of success and never shy away from publicity.”
Tannens Magic Blog
“The man is a natural magician. He does everything with great care, meticulous misdirection and flawless instinct. The nails are real, the keys are really borrowed, the envelopes are actually sealed, there are no stooges, there are no secret radio devices and there are no props from the magic catalogues.”
James Randi (In an open letter to Abracadabra Magazine)
Sir Elton John
“Eternity is down the hall And you sit there bending spoons In your mind, in your mind”
“I Have watched Uri Geller… I have seen that so I am a believer. It was my house key and the only way I would be able to use it is get a hammer and beat it out back flat again.”
“Better than watching Geller bending silver spoons, better than witnessing new born nebulae’s in bloom”
