I sat down at my regular pub, had the bartender/owner pick a card, had her rip it up and flush it down the toliet. After several "failed" attempts to bring back the card, I order a beer. She pulls a bottle of Landshark out of the chest cooler, and her card is in the bottle. The beer is still sealed, and it's not a twist off... I almost got chased out of there with pitchforks and torches...
Where did you say you got the "Gimmick" for that effect? I recall you mentioning it before but I just finished searching a few home brew websites and couldn't find any.
I wouldn't even call it a "gimmick." It's just a bottle capper that you need. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/products ... rodID=4765
It's actually a REALLY easy trick. You just put a duplicate card in the bottle, and then force the card on them. I am a bartender, so I always know what I have stocked. The time I did it as a bar patron is somewhat unique. It's a small town bar in South Dakota. It's normal for me to go behind the bar when no one is back there. I had 2 people I know sitting right in front of the cooler, and they didn't even notice me slip the bottle in there. They actually got pissed at me. My FAVORITE reaction. All you need is a force card, a duplicate, and a bottle capper. Gently pop the bottle, stick the card in, and recap it REALLY quick, or it will foam over.
Obviously, my situation was unique. Quite a few things had to go right, but they did, and you can't imagine the reactions. Even when I'm behind my own bar, the reactions are unreal. I always use Landshark, it's a crap beer, but the bottle is clear, and not a twist off. Twist offs are actually much harder to recap. You can use other non-twist offs if you want, but if they are not from North America, you'll need an adapter. While bartending, this trick is easy, on the patron side it's all audience management, or a bartender you know as a partner. I even have a waitress that can forge a signature, bottle the card, and stock the cooler while this is all going on. The card doesn't have to be signed, but the reactions are so much better.
People have told me on here to not explain my tricks. I created this one, love it, and want to share it with my Penguin Friends.
People love this one. People have accused me of ordering premade Landsharks. People have accused me of having a deal with satan. Grab the bottle capper, use your favorite card force, and just enjoy the reactions. It's so easy. The rest is just theatrics.
