How do you do that? That’s really good, haha. Im shocked! I’m gonna ask you to pick a card, it doesn’t matter that I see what it is, but I am going
to ask you to write your name nice and big across the card, so maybe pick
one with a little white space on there. Anyone you want.
If you could, write your name, draw a picture, anything, nice and big across the face of
the card. Catherine?
Yep! I’m gonna teach you a bit about how magic
works, it’s all about special moves, alright. So pretty straightforward, we’ll start off
with something simple, we’ll put the seven of spades, uuuurm, roughly in the centre.
Squeeze it right in, watch out for the special move. Watch out for it. That’s it!
Wow, that was special. Isn’t that amazing? And what happens is, the
seven of spades jumps right back to the top again.
That is quite special! We’ll go one more time just because you enjoyed
it so much the first time. So it goes, again, roughly into the middle of the pack. I’ll
just square them up. It’s important to notice that if I don’t do the special move, there’s
no Ace of diamonds on top. In fact, in case you don’t trust me, the second card isn’t
the Ace of Diamonds as well. But here we go, we go for the special move, we just snap,
you don’t believe me? And there we go the Ace of Diamonds jumps right back to the top.
You can try it yourself in fact. Cut off about half the cards. Yep. Drop them on top. Take
the cards. Snap your fingers. Turn over the top card.
Whaaaat! Hahaha! The Ace of Diamonds! Isn’t that amazing? I’ll let you have a go. Cut off about half the cards. Drop them on top. Take the pack. Snap your fingers. Turn over the top card. Noooooo! Hahahaha! One last time, and I’ll be really really fair this time, we’ll actually go in face up like
that, there’s no way, and I’ll use this rubber band. I’ll wrap the rubber band around the
pack. This one’s a little bit loose actually, I’ll double it up.
Just band that up nice and tight. So now think about this, the Ace of Diamond is in the middle
of the pack, it’s all banded up, is there any way that your card can get to the top?
Whaat! haha! Take it out.
What? That’s good. Watch carefully.
Check it out have a look. Your card in the middle of the pack, the pack’s
banded up, there’s no way that your card can get to the top right?
Yep. Watch carefully. Watch.
Woooah! Take it out have a look.
Yeah! Ah that’s really annoying, isn’t it? it’s annoying?
Yeah it’s really annoying that you can do that, and I don’t know how! Haha. That’s mental. How’d do you do that? haha It just changed! hahaha. That’s really good. haha. I’m shocked!
