Alright, you guys want to see a really cool
magic trick? Yeah? Alright, let’s try it. Go ahead and take any card you want. I don’t care which. Okay. Got it? Take a look at it. Show it to the camera. Alright, good. Alright. May I? Alright, we’re going to take this back, and
we’re just going to put all the cards back in my little box. Good? Mhmm. Now, what I want you to do is I want you to
focus. I want you to focus as hard as you can on
your card, and I want you to start going like that? Could you do that for me? And hopefully, just… Whoa. …with a little bit of magic, your card comes
right out from the center. Is that pretty cool? Yeah. And that is the amazing rising card effect. You guys want to know how it’s done? Yeah. Alright, something a little bit sneaky again. This time, the sneaky thing is something I
do long before the trick. I’ve actually, and you can see it right here,
cut a slit into the back of the box. What that allows me to do is to make the card
literally rise out of the deck. Now, there are a couple of nice little subtleties
to doing this one effectively, right? I don’t even use a key card for this one. I just care if she takes the card, and if
she looks at it then, great, we’ll put it back. I just put it right on top. The spectator at this point doesn’t know what’s
going to happen, so they’re not watching too carefully where you’re putting the card. And you just put the card…you pick the box
up, and you want to make sure they never see that, right? So you keep the box face down. It’s not important right now. It’s an insignificant box, and you want to
treat it as such. But you pick the box up, you slide the cards
right in, right? Just like so. And you ask them to focus on it. I think that’s really important, you know
– that they really have the card in mind – because then they feel like they’re really making
the magic happen. So all you’re going to do is go like that
for me again, and, oh my god, just like that. It’s pure magic. Now, if you look closely you’ll see that that
card is coming out from the top of the deck, but from their angle that’s actually almost
impossible to tell. So what I do to add a little subtlety to it
is I just mention it – “There your card comes right out of the middle.” And to sell that even more what I do is I
slide it back into the middle when I’m putting it away, just so that when they remember it
later on, in their memory that card will have both come from and returned to the middle
of the pack. And that is how you sell that illusion. It’s a great effect. Did you guys like it? Yeah. And that is the magical rising card.
