THE EFFECT: Learn how to penetrate a pen or pencil right through a note without ripping it! Watch the performance below...
THE SECRET: Now learn how to do it by watching the reveal video...
Borrow a bill and a pen or pencil from the spectator. Fold the bill in half but as you are folding it secretly make another fold Just like in the video above. You will have to perfect the move so spectators do not suspect anything.
Now grab the note with your fingers and with your index finger open the bill so it become like a 'V' as shown in the video. Now take the pencil or pen and pretend that your are inserting it in to the big crease but in fact your are inserting it into that secret little fold.
Remember that when you are inserting the pen or pencil move the bill slightly towards you so the spectator can't see that you are inserting it in the secret fold. Grab the bill from above and show both sides, give it a short spin. Do not do it too slowly or the spectator might see the secret fold.
Now while grabbing the bill from above slowly move the pencil down, it will give the illusion that the pencil is penetrating through the bill. Finish the effect by removing the creases in the bill and hand it out for total inspection.
TIPS: Always use a crisp bill. I used a stick because it is thin and gives a better view on camera but you can use whatever you want eg. pen, pencil etc. When pulling the pencil through the bill slightly move the secret fold part up to yourself so when it's unfolding spectators won't see it. Practice your angles in front of a mirror and have fun with it!
