I bought this trick about the time David Blaine first did it.
I do it in EVERY SHOW.
People I've never remember meeting before come up to me and say things like, "Oh my God! You're the
guy who did the soda can trick! I still remember it from 10 years ago." it is a trick they will
remember. It is easy to do. Yes there are some things that you have to practice as with any trick...
It works with any soda, or, get this, any beer!
This trick is one of the few
effects I do in EVERY SHOW. it is that good. It works in any and every venue. Close up, stage,
parlor. It is the perfect trick.
There is some set up work, and you cannot do an instant
reset and redo it. However, when I am doing walk around stuff, I will have several set up in advance
ready to go around the venue.
Do your magic a favor and learn this trick.
old forums I posted a link to a video of me doing this trick and was told that it was the best
performance out there... I miss the old forums.)

Healed and Sealed is a very cleverly thought out illusion. It may take some practice, or maybe
experimentation is a better word, once you know the secret(s) to get the trick to come out just the
way you want. Once you have the “settings” where you want them, a beginner should be able to pull
this off with a bit of rehearsal.
Healed and Sealed can be presented just as seen in the
video. It plays well to the small audiences I entertain and I saw it performed at a theater that
amazed about a thousand spectators.
Although no one has caught on yet, I always worry
about how one of the prep steps will turn out. But it looks like Penguin is now offering 100
gimmicks to take the place of this preparation included in the price. Great idea! I’m sure most or
all of us would rather spend our effort on the presentation and not on the arts and crafts.
Hey good folks at Penguin Magic, how about offering just the gimmicks at a reasonable cost to
those of us that already sprung for the prior version of Healed and Sealed?

I have been looking to add more variation to my routines other than card magic. When I first saw
"Healed and Sealed" I thought it was too good to be true, but I have to tell you, before I even
received my gimmicks, I was performing this routine.
And the results are amazing. About
half of the people are so dumbfounded by what happens they simply take the poured soda offered from
what had been presented as an empty can and thank me for it, often noting how nice and cold it is.
One lady simply wouldn't drink it as she was sure there were cigarette butts in it...
A quarter of the people are simply confused by the effect and just can't wrap their head around
it and the last quarter of the spectators as jaw droppingly stunned.
I have to say, this is
a definite ADD to my routine~!
Not complicated. Little to no practice. Easy to have on hand. A great trick! I love it because it is
another close up trick not using cards or coins and is easy for the audience to relate to!
What can I say? I do stand up magic at conventions throughout the year and this trick is an
absolute shoe in~! I'll be doing it all weekend this weekend for sure and as the gimmicks and
alternatives are easy to come by or create, I won't have to wait for my gimmicks to arrive.
Simply amazing illusion and without a doubt this will be a VERY popular routine for me in the
