How's Bout Some Popcoin?
(Carlinville, IL, USA)
The magician holds out a popcorn box and shows that it has no bottom and his hands are empty. Spectators can even put there hand through the box. The magician (with a little magic) tips coins out of the box and hands them around for examination.THE SECRET:
Get a box of popcorn from say the movies, eat all the popcorn (or pitch it) and cut out the bottom. Next get a piece of posterboard or thick paper (must be white) and cut a strip to the size of the inside of the box (narrow side).
Glue it in there on the sides and bottom but leave the top open. Put some coins in there beforehand. Now show the box off and let someone stick their hand down through it.
All the time cover the secret opening with your hand. Now wave your hand or wand over the box and then in a swift motion, tip out the coins exclaiming "Anyone for popcoin?"
Do this trick at the cinema and make it fun, put enough money in the box for someone to get popcorn with! =P
