I only recently learned the Quarter through soda can. Yes, I am very late to the party. Most reviews
here are 5-8 years old. I do not see any recent reviews or comments. It is no longer available here,
but I thought this info should be shared. Yes, it is a great effect if performed properly, but there
is a big problem.
It's 2017, and apparently the soda can manufacturers have changed the size of
the hole in can. Without giving anything away, a standard US Quarter NO longer fits in through the
hole without having to force it. It's just a hair too narrow now. In the demonstration video it is
shown dropping out of the can into spectators hand. You will no longer be able to do that. No one
seems to mention that.
The effect is 5 stars, but no longer being able to properly perform
it sadly makes it a 1.

Just to see Criss and Wayne teach this effect is a treat. Every subtlety and nuance is covered. If
you watch the DVD and put in the effort to practice and come up with a strong presentation, then you
will blow people away.
Although I enjoyed watching the DVD, I have not been able to
perform this effect regularly because it requires you to dump the soda out of the can. No matter how
strong the effect is, it is impolite to take away someone's soda and pour it on the ground. Unless
you have made prior arrangements, you are pretty much limited to performing this outdoors. This is
just something to keep in mind when buying the DVD. 5 out of 5 for effect. 2 out of 5 for

What can I say about this trick that hasn't been said already? This trick is the greatest impromptu
trick of all time. You borrow everything. You can walk into a room with NOTHING, and borrow
everything you need right there, and you can literally perform this miracle. Borrow the quarter,
borrow the sharpie, and borrow the soda/beer can. You can't get any better then that. That IS
The people I've showed this to are STILL talking about it to this day. I've been
performing this trick for those same people for YEARS and they still have no idea how it's done, yet
they don't even care, they just want to keep watching it. It's that powerful. Some have their
quarter still inside their can at home sitting on their shelf. With this trick you ALWAYS have
something to show, even when you have nothing on you. Just do this one trick for them, leave
everything with them, and walk away.
Personally I don't like one trick dvd's because too
many of them don't give you your moneys worth for only one effect. But with this dvd, you not only
get your moneys worth, you get a trick that you will perform for your lifetime. What I've been
doing lately is the sharpie routine from chop before I have their coin signed going into this.
Having that combined with this routine together, makes all of it a masterpiece. I can't recommend
If you learn only one impromptu trick, then this is the one you should learn. It's very practical
(everything can be borrowed), and it's not really that difficult to learn. Wayne Houchin is pure
I use this all the time (I work in construction) so I know the practicalit of it.
Do yourself a favor and learn this now!
This is just magic at it's finest. Impromptu and extremely powerful. It doesn't get much better
Highly recommend that you pick this up and learn an effect that will serve you
well at every part you'll ever attend.
Give this the proper practice and you'll blow people away. I started doing this as soon as I got it
I was so excited so I got caught because I thought it's so easy you can't get caught but you can if
you don't pay attention to the subtleties. Some sleight of hand is required but not hard to master
so work on performance and deliver greatly.
Awesome! This is my personal favorite Criss Angel product on the market! Though it isn't Criss's
original effect it is truly amazing, and a thumbs up from me because it uses no gaffs!!! Probably my
favorite soda can effect also! Only downside is it is a little more difficult with New Zealand
cans... but a little more practice and its fine!
This is a miracle worker right here. You can do this in a bar, street, strolling, restaurant. And
it's visual and quick. I know this has been exposed to many but don't be afraid to perform this.
People won't care about what they learned from people on youtube if you perform it right.
Criss sits down with Wayne and Wayne gives you all the pointers to the effect. Easy but don't
perform this until you know your steps well or it will look fishy.
Get it even if you know
it :D The tips help a lot to make you stand out from the bunch that cannot perform it correctly.
It's a well produced DVD and well worth the money
This is one of the best impromptu effects you can possibly do, I mean it's pretty close to perfect!
I do this trick at parties, in the street, in restaurants...pretty much anywhere really because all
you need is a coin and a can!
The guys teach the effect very well and they go over the
nuances in a lot of detail which is great. I would certainly recommend you check this out!
Master this one, and you'll be the life of the party - guaranteed!
Works with soda and beer
cans and takes some serious practice. I wouldn't recommend performing this without AT LEAST
practicing the moves for a couple hours and completely performing it start to finish by yourself 3-5
times before you show anybody. But once you get it, muscle memory takes over and it's seamless!
The best part of this is that you can do it completely impromptu, as there is no setup.
The trick relies on your ability to perform, so in the name of Magic, if you get this trick, spend
the time to perform it well!
