Reverse video for your kids: Imagine your kid showing his reverse video to his friends and his friends are all going “WOW”! Just imagine that your kid is standing in your room and football which is on couch comes on its own in hands of your kids! Wouldn’t that be a great deal of surprise? I personally feel that every kid would fly on the seventh sky showing his reversed videos to his friends. I know it because I have done it as a parent. My son was so happy first seeing himself doing all those magic tricks like flying back to the top of couch, rejoining torn pieces of paper sheet on its own, three cushions floating back to him from the couch. Then he showed it to his friends and received awesome reactions from them. This made him real happy.

Reverse video for teenagers: School and college going students must try this. You would receive kind of reception that you had never received earlier in your classroom or among friends. Imagine yourself pouring water in a bowl but instead of bowl being filled with it, it gets emptied as you pour water in it. To know the real reactions from your friends, just show such a reversed video once and feel the experience.

It’s boring to show your friends what you did the way you actually did it. Add some spice to it. Show them you jumping from a small cliff into a pond, but in reverse!! i.e. show them yourself coming out of water and then going back to the cliff! Fun begins here. Try it.

Sometimes you may need more than once reversed videos, which I would recommend highly, along with matching background royalty free music to it, then in such case you can either purchase reverse video software or can hire someone to do this job for you at cheap price.
