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.

This trick is one of the best do at any time trick. Every thing for this trick is borrowed. Wayne is a good teacher on this and Criss gives some good tips. Buy this trick soon before it sells out.

hype... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 9th, 2005
Don't get me wrong, this trick is very good, it has a nice flow to it and have amazing convincers, but....

It's not that hard to figure out, it wouldn't work on a heckler of any sorts. Also, no one actually lied about this trick: it is completely impromptu and all, but the phrase "remove the coin from the open can when they get home" is very misleading. No one will be taking this can home as part of the trick. Maybe it could be a souvenir, but the coin is more likely. The magician handles the can the whole way through the trick, and it does have angle problems at some times. The teaching is fine, the moves are simple (not easy, but simple) Also, this effect is a bit overpriced, though one could argue that you do get some insight into Criss Angel's theories on magic.

The point I'm trying to make is: don't get it because of the hype. Consider this trick like any other trick of its kind.

Since about half of the DVD is an interview with Criss Angel, i'll adress that too.

He's a smart guy, he really understands what he wants out of magic, and where he believes magic should be going in todays world. What i don't understand is why he is selling someone else's effect. I'm glad he brought the creator into the video, but criss angel is a bit... he's a TV star just as much, if not more than he is a magician.

That's about it. It's a good effect, but remember, it's just one effect, don't let the glorious name of the DVD fool you.

This is definitely a well-crafted trick. It reminds me of something that paul harris would come up with. All of the moves make sense and are motivated. I think that it'll quickly become a classic impromptu magic effect.

I just want to caution people who are considering it: though the method is simple enough to learn in an afternoon, you really need to practice this before you go out and perform it. Beginners beware, though there is no tricky sleight of hand, there are some very tricky angles, and we all know how hard it is to get those types of effects to a point where they're easy to perform.

Yes, it is also misleading to say that the spectator would take this home as a souvenir, but don't let that keep you from buying this. It's really a solid effect.

Great Trick. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 14th, 2005
I've been waiting for Penguin to get this trick for some time. When I received the DVD, I went through the instructions and was performing this in about an hour in front of a mirror.

Some of the handling is tricky and you really need to watch the angles, but once you master it, the effect really blows people away.

I performed this for a friend of mine who is a bit critical of magic and tries to figure out my tricks. When I finished and showed him his quarter in the can, he was speechless.

Whether you like Criss or not, this effect is awesome when performed right. Pick this trick up. You won't be dissapointed!!!

.. well said.. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 15th, 2005
haha.. its funny .. if you look close enough at the picture of criss sitting down.. you can see that the coke can is photoshopped and named "the smooth cola".

anyway.

what amazes me is the impromptu nature of this trick.. it really IS what angel and wayne claims to be.. sometimes there are other tricks that claim to be impromptu.. but needs a little bit of a set-up. this one is the real deal.

for every trick.. there is an explanation. and i gotta say..
criss and wayne are really good teachers. it feels as if they're talking to their viewers personally.. wayne's teaching style reminds me of gregory wilson's [and you know greg is an amazing teacher..]
if you've seen mindfreak it looks exactly like it.

i dunno what else to say. hope the reviews convince you to get it..

I dont know why people have anything negative to say about Criss Angel. This is a great trick created by a good magician and when performed by Angel has probably made him a lot of money!

This trick is very easy but I have seen it performed by someone who did not do much practice and it looked horrible. Definately buy this trick but put some time in to learn the little things like ANGLES, it is those that make the trick look like magic and not just a trick!

Add to cart.
