  • 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 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.

Alright, you guys want to see a really cool magic trick? Yeah? Alright, let's try it.
