The explanation is good but Jay Sankey's side comments are just plain weird. He appears to just
babble and any strange thing that comes into his mind comes out of his mouth regardless of whether
it is appropriate or not. I don't believe I will ever buy another of his products unless I can see
that the video is performed by someone else.

For lay people - It KILLS! Love the great nice and easy handling. Even if you have a hard time to do
a "Me***** F***" you can always concentrate on the presentation, as Jay teaches you how to make this
perfect every single time. Love it!
Absolutely phenomenal effect. Jay has never failed to disappoint, but this is my absolute favorite
of his. A fair warning, pick up about 5 decks of cards to practice with, you will go through them
before you're ready to perform. But it's a very easy trick to do, and gets amazing reactions. I
never leave home without a deck of cards and a paperclip now.
I've never been a fan of card magic, but I knew I had to put something in my routine, so I ordered
this trick. I didn't put another thought in it, and when it arrived at my door I had completely
forgotten about it. It sat on my counter for 2 days, then finally I figured "what the hell" and put
it in the dvd player. The shock I felt when I realized how powerful this trick was was unreal. This
can be performed by any deck of cards on a moments notice, the sleight of hand is genius and can be
performed with people at any angle, and with practice you could master this trick in two hours and
4-5 decks. Huge respect and compliments to Jay, I never leave my house without a deck of cards and a
paperclip in my pocket now.
I love to smile and laugh as most of us do. I was able to do lots of both watching Jay Sankey.
This isn't brand new but it holds it's own with the very best of the very best illusions being
Brilliant minds sometimes go in several directions at once.
does that but always manages to bring everything together to make brilliant memorable points as he
walks you slowy and carefully step by step through his illustion so nothing will be hard to grasp.
I'm still a beginner and the effect takes practice. For me, at least 4 hours to feel
comfortable showing it, but it is oh so worth it!
I was feeling a bit down last night so I
popped in Mr. Sankey and was laughing out loud again...WHILE LEARNING
If you aren't such a big fan of silly humor, don't let that stop you from learning a genius
method from a genius.
1. The effect is easy to understand thanks to the teacher. medium
difficulty (for a beginner) to achieve,
2 I would rate it 9.2 on the Awesomeness scale of
10 as far as impact on your audience.
3. AND, this is an effect that can be done anytime
anywhere at a moments notice with a 2 second reset.
4. You won't have to repurchase
anything! You just will need an ordinary everyday paperclip and some cards.
I am so happy
with this purchase. :)
My first impression of the basic technique and the way it was used in routines, was that it was "too
magical". In other words, you didn't leave room for the spectator to come to any other conclusion,
other than the fact you must've pulled off a very deceptive switch.
So my fear was that
instead of getting a "How did you do that?" reaction, I'd get a "When did you switch it?" reaction.
As it turns out, I was completely wrong. Maybe because the finish is so disorienting, the spectator
simply can't process it right away. Maybe the next day they're able to deconstruct it, but by then,
I'm long gone.
So yes, I'd recommend this very highly. Aside from the great reactions,
it's really very easy to do. And whether you're laughing with him or at him, Jay's tutoring is
always fun to watch.
This is one of my favorite Jay Sankey effects out there. The only preparation you need is to fold a
card and put a paperclip on it. The rest is impromptu. You can let the spectator choose any card
they want. They can even name a card and take it. There is no force that you need. The card is then
even signed. There is a bit of slight of hand involved but nothing too difficult. For a great trick
that is good to do under all circumstances pick this up.
Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
Now THIS is worth a purchase! BUY
IT RIGHT NOW! You can't seriously still be reading this without having it added to your cart! ADD
Jay Sankey is a genius. Now I will warn you, he can be a little bit of a character
sometimes, which for me can get annoying. When I'm in magic mode, I get tired of all the DVDs with
pointless babble and overtalk right in the middle of learning the trick, which does happen here.
However this is a great trick and you will be stunning audiences for a long time with this
one, as long as you put the proper work into its presentation. This effect is not very difficult at
all to do, which is why extra work must be put into the presentation to make it killer.
You gotta get this one.
If i were in a life or death situation and someone said to perform a trick i would do this. It had a
great plot with an unbeleivable finish. I have performed this trick hundreds of times and the best
part is you can hide the card wherever you want beforhand.
I really cannot recommend this DVD enough. This DVD not only teaches a post-modern classic I perform
anywhere and everywhere, but it blows people away! The moves used in the trick are explained over
and over so you do not have to rewind. Jay is also quite funny while teaching this stuff. I learned
this trick in two decks and thirty minutes after watching this DVD because of how well it is taught.
I have been introduced to the principles before, but when he taught them like this it clicked! This
is my favourite trick now! The move is always going to fool people and it comes with a host of other
uses on the DVD! Anyone could take the principle and apply it to at least a dozen different tricks
right of the bat! That wasn't only the best part! An equally funny and well taught part comes at the
end, with the five bonus routines. Mating Season, taught on this is now a definite part of my
working repitore, hitting hard and so simple! It also helped me to create many routines. I cannot
stress this enough, so help me, Penguinmagic, and Jay Sankey by putting this in your cart now!
