THE EFFECT: Pass your finger through the middle of a note! Rip it out and magically restore it! Watch the performance below, then learn the secret...
THE SECRET: Watch the secret below...
This is a great penetration trick where you borrow a bill then shove your finger right through it! When the spectators examines the bill they are always surprised there is no hole in it.
Borrow a Bank note. Now fold it in half and give the illusion you are tearing the bill by scratching your thumb on it, this will give the sound of a tear. Now cover the center of the bill with your hand and fold it length wise.
Notice in my secret video that I have not completely folded the bill in half length ways, one folded side is small than the other. This is a trick to cover a flaw in the illusion when your finger is inserted into the folded side.
Once you have folded the bill length ways cover it with your hand just like in the video. Remember before inserting the finger you must be facing side ways to your audience, if not they might see what you are doing.
Now insert your first finger into the folded half and under the cover extend your middle finger at the back of the note, adjust the length of your first finger. It will give the illusion that the finger has penetrated right through the bill.
Now in a quick motion slide your finger side ways, this will give a ripping sound. The audience will think that the bill has been torn! Pass the bill out for examination. Nothing is gimmicked every thing is crystal clear, Take a bow!
THE TIP: Always Borrow the bill. Use the rip effect by scratching your thumb on the bill to give the sound of the tear. Before inserting the finger sit side ways to your audience so no one catches you.
Cover almost 80% of the bill with your hand just before inserting your finger. Notice the position of the hand and finger I have shoved through the bill. You will see only my two fingers that are bent, I'm covering the middle finger with my thumb but the illusions give the effect that it's just a normal fist.
Always watch your angles in front of the mirror before trying it for someone else. Say some magic words as you are 'healing' the hole that you just made with your finger.
