This is without a doubt one of the most powerfully stimulating collections of magic and mentalism Jay has ever released!
The sixteen killer routines include knock-out effects with steel bolts, monopoly money, ping-pong balls, drinking straws, bottle caps, dollar bills, glass capsules, business cards, fortune cookies, paper clips, notepads, packing bubbles, finger rings and more! And most of them Jay is revealing here the very first time!
The miracle-worker dissolves an initialed Alka-Seltzer tablet in a glass of water and drinks every drop. A minute later he impossibly coughs up the tablet complete with the spectator's initials!
BURDEN OF PROOF
The performer links a twist-tie (twisted in to a loop by a spectator!) to his own finger ring! The SPECTATOR then untwists the tie and removes it from the ring!
A small, flat white disc of cardboard momentarily changes into a ping pong ball...then back into an ordinary piece of cardboard! So easy, and beautifully visual!
The mentalist's name and the names of two other spectators are written on slips of paper and they are all mixed up. With no equivoque or funny moves the spectator "with some psychic ability" is able to choose the correct slip for all three people! Killer opening effect!
One of those small white plastic "best before" tags from a loaf of bread is sent back in time several times. At the end, even the 'best before date' changes to a much earlier date!
The Mismade Bill concept is great, but it would even be better if, every time you perform the effect you could GIVE THE SCREWED UP BILL AWAY AS A SOUVENIR! Well, now you CAN!
You divine the fortune in a FREELY SELECTED fortune cookie. Do this one at the right time and place and it will MAKE your reputation!
A DELICATE BALANCE
Three steel bolts are balanced on top of each other, one at a time. Then all three bolts are magically EPOXY GLUED together and can be immediately handed out for examination!
A drinking straw is stabbed through the middle of a bottle cap then the cap is slowly pulled off the end of the straw and allowed to fall directly into a spectator's OWN HAND. The moment the cap hits the spectator's palm, it instantly HEALS ITSELF! And yes, both the cap and the straw can be immediately examined! (They can even be borrowed!)
AROUND THE BEND
A paperclip is completely bent out of shape and then mysteriously regains its original shape in an INSANELY VISUAL FASHION!
Several small envelopes are introduced with paper money from a different country in each. The spectator merely THINKS of one of the bills (and it IS a free choice) and when the spectators open all the envelopes, they find that the freely chosen bill has been REDUCED TO ASHES! Everything can be examined!
AIR OF MYSTERY
A spectator pops all the bubbles on a small square of packing bubble material, but with just a wave of his hand the magician causes all the popped bubbles to impossibly REFILL WITH AIR!
An outstanding stand-up routine involving a two-phase bill switch handling and a packet of Monopoly cards. An incredibly VISUAL ending!
A startling transposition between two halves of a torn piece of paper. Super easy to do (really just ONE MOVE!) and it even automatically re-sets!!
A slip of paper with the correct prediction literally APPEARS inside a small glass vial. This is a concept with unlimited potential and applications!
You draw a large "X" on the back of one of your own cards and mix it into the stack. But somehow, when the spectator FREELY chooses any one of the business cards they discover they've chosen the one with the X! (And there really is only ONE X on the back of ONE CARD in the entire stack!)
Running Time Approximately 100 min
