Considered to be one of the most influential names in magic today, Criss Angel built his career by having a visionary approach and groundbreaking material.

Now for the first time ever, it�s available to you, in his exclusive Criss Angel Mastermind DVD series (volume one).

This effect can be performed Anywhere, Anytime with No special props. That's Right � No Props, No Gimmicks, No Switches and No Set Ups of any kind are required! Borrow a spectator�s signed coin... ask for a can of soda or beer (works with many brands)... then watch their face as their signed coin miraculously penetrates their sealed can, which immediately is heard and seen inside the can. As a matter of fact, the spectator, not the magician, can be the first person to try to remove the coin from the open can when they get home! It�s Completely Clean!

Delve inside Criss Angel Masterminds as Criss and Wayne demonstrate the play-by-play breakdown for you to perform the Quarter Through Soda Can.

Plus bonus material, including an exclusive interview with Criss sharing his inner thoughts on magic, his career and TV series hosted by his close friend/manager/magician Dave Baram. Get your MINDFREAK on!

Strong but impractical Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
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 practicality.

The greatest impromptu trick of all time! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 14th, 2013
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 magic.

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 this enough.

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 genious!

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 than this.

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.

Wicked!!! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 5th, 2010
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!

Wayne Houchin's baby Report this review

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

Excellent effect. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
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!

My favorite trick of all time! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
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!

Tricky, but sweet Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
Cleanliness: 7/10 (practice and skill increase this #)
Godliness: 8/10 (same as above)
Difficulty: 5/10

With practice (not a whole lot) this is astonishing.
