That was freakin awesome! Is that like a T.V. show somewhere? No clue what it is called though...

Kind of reminds me of Royal Flash but better. Maybe if you buy Royal Flash, you can make your own gimmick without using four kings. Also, I know a young magician named Jordan Cotler has something similar to this, where he shakes the cards and they all change. Obviously, the cards used are gimmicks, hand probably have hidden flaps.

The show it was on was T.H.E.M.

The cards are gimmicked. Casinos use standard poker size decks typically with their logos or name on them. Those where bridge size, with no Casino insignia.

The cards also lacked the 4-index style that's typical of most casino cards.

Royal Flash is probably your best bet. Although it is made with Bikes, the gimmick can easily be reproduced on other cards.

Thanks. There are plenty of other problems with the video that paint a clear picture of the whole thing being staged.

1: There was no casino security.
2: The 4 magicians didn't get pickled up by the gaming comission right after the cards changed.
3: They had a video camera - typically a big 'no-no' in casinos.

years ago when shade came out, and before zapped was re-released on E i came up with a method for this that looks 100% exactly like this, and i am pretty sure uses the same method.

tricks that will give a bit of insight on this trick would be royal flash as mentioned, and 2wenty1. both by jbmagic. i only have 2wenty1 and this is how i came up with my version for this.

Yes, I thought T.H.E.M was a pretty crap show tbh.

The last two were Zapped (2:18 and the one prior). Just different handlings.

You can also check out Fan-2-C by R. Paul Wilson. Very similar in appearance however you apparantly end somewhat clean.

The one before 2:18 looked a lot better than the one at 2:18. The 2:18 one looked kind of sloppy, the one before it was very clean and looked a lot better.

Performing Zapped in that way doesn't have to be sloppy. With practice, it can actually look very clean.

It was a pilot for a new "street magic" show in 2004.

I think the only episode that ever aired was their pilot.
