Money From Thin Air
(HCM City, Vietnam)
THE EFFECT: This fantastic free "money from thin air" magic trick will fool your audience every time as a fountain of dollar bills flow from your finger tips!
You Will Need:
• Some Money Bills
• Long Sleeved Jacket or Sweater
THE PERFORMANCE: Calmly seated at a table, the magician invites a spectator to sit down across the table from him. The magician opens both hands and clearly shows both sides, they are completely empty.
To reinforce this fact, each sleeve is pulled up to expose the magicians lower arms and each hand again is shown open at this stage.
The magician then clasps both hands together and with a vigorous rubbing motion, proceeds to spew a fountain of seemingly limitless money bills, out from between his hands. This looks awesome and leaves your spectator totally baffled.
THE SECRET: So, what's the secret? It's easy when you know how. Simply roll up a few money bills into a tight roll and place the tube of bills hidden in a crease in the sleeve of your jacket.
Do this before inviting the spectator to join you for this amazing illusion. If you hold your arm relaxed, with your elbow resting on the table, the roll of bills should remain concealed.
Then, when you pull up your second sleeve, pull the sleeve, near to the hidden bills. Open your hand to show it is empty, this action will distract the spectator's attention, allowing you to subtly sneak the bills into your other hand.
Place your hands quickly together and you should be able to push out the bills from your finger tips, one by one.
