Banana Split Magic Trick

by Jackof25
(Philippines)


THE EFFECT: The magician shows a normal banana that has not yet been peeled. Anyone can check out the banana. By the use of his mind the magician claims he can cut the banana into 6 slices. He proves he has done this by getting a spectator to peel the banana only to find it has been sliced!


THE SECRET: Before the trick you need to prepare the banana. You need to carefully take a needle, stick it into the banana and slice it by waving the needle backwards and forwards inside the banana.


Repeat this along the banana until you have finished about 6 slices. After that you’re now ready to perform this amazing trick. The rest of the performance is just showmanship pretending to slice the banana with the power of your mind.


TIP: Use a small gauge needle so the holes are not noticeable. Also try and place the needle in the dark parts of the banana to hide the holes.

Extention
by: Daniel

How about extending on that? Have two bananas (one is "cut" somewhere) and wave a knife until someone say stop, but hold the knife way above the banana so you can bring the knife down and go to the point you cut to the other one any time. You cut it there and reveal that the second banana are "magically" split in the same place.
