The next thing we’re going to learn here,
guys, it’s one of the oldest effects in magic. Everyone’s seen their grandfather do it at
dinner. This is how to make a coin disappear. It’s really easy. I’m going to show you how to do it. You’re going to use a move that we magicians
call the false transfer. Here’s how it works. You’re going to start with the coin right
here on your second and third finger. Just like that. You’re basically going to take your hand,
turn it over, and pretend to put the coin into your left hand. The way you’re going to sell that illusion
is this. Your thumb is actually going to clip it just
like that. So, it looks like the coin goes into this
hand, but really it’s here the whole time in what’s called finger palm position. Because you’re palming it with your fingers
just like so. Then, all you do is you make it disappear. Now, you probably noticed I did something
with my sleeves. That’s one of the key moments of misdirection
for the effect. It’s a little bit suspicious to take a coin
that you claim to have the power to vanish and have to move it to another hand to do
it. That looks a little funny. To kind of get rid of that funniness I keep
my sleeves just rolled down about halfway, and I justify the transfer of the coin by
rolling up my sleeves. It’s an inconspicuous little motion, but it
makes this moment look even less suspicious.
