A borrowed cell phone is held in one hand - and a balloon is inflated. The cell phone visually penetrates inside of the balloon. It is shown, then given back to the spectator with the cell phone still inside.

The result is a twisted hybrid of visual craziness: the borrowed cell phone is INSIDE of the balloon. The spectator removes it herself. There are no crazy gimmicks. Any cell phone. Any balloon. Nothing but magic.

PRESSURE is an effect conceived by Daniel Garcia with additional insight and assistance from David Blaine magic producer Dan White at the HQ in NYC in preparation for his Dive of Death television special.

All objects can be borrowed and signed; both the balloon and the cell phone. We wouldn't recommend signing anyone's phone - but it's nice having that option. No cell phone? Use an iPod.

NOTE: You are not limited to a cell phone. Any small object can be used - from a deck to a wallet to a soda can.

This effect is awesome, I bought it, and I must say, it's awesome...^^.
It's totally impromptu, and you get much greater reactions than you see in the demo, I did it in my class, and my friends jumped on the table...

Take my word: BUY IT!!!

Cool Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 4th, 2010
This trick definitely has it's stand up appeals to it. You can perform it on the street, in a stand up performance, parlor etc. The best place to do it though, is hanging out with friends.
I found that like many of Theory11's products, they edit them way too much. There is too much of the flashing lights and grungy smoke and what not going on that it takes away from what you are actually trying to see. I could do without all of that
The method is pretty obvious to Magicians but what we need to realize is that WE aren't meant to perform for ourselves. We were meant to perform and astonish the WORLD. Not just other Magicians. While I feel this was marketed TO magicians, it does have it's merits for actual audiences.
So over all, I really enjoyed watching this and seeing the different performances and lines they use. The performances were really only about 30 seconds each, but they look cool. And finally, the DVD was only about 30 minutes in length. But it was cool to see them both perform with different objects.

Great trick, aweful DVD and aweful price Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 31st, 2010
IMO, the trick is really cool. The clean up is a breeze. With out giving anything away, after i'm done with the trick, I show the spectators that the cell phone is really in the balloon; as i'm doing the clean up. Its SO simple.

It is unfortunate that there are magicians out there that really take advantage by putting out dvds that just show one effect. Towards the end of the dvd, theres actually an entire segment where daniel garcia is doing the pressure effect on things like scissors and peoples faces (trying to be funny). As i'm looking at this segment, i'm thinking "wow, people paid to see him act like a fool"

Magicians like greg wilson and jay sankey show us how you can be informative and have humor. Even with DVDs that promote one effect, they always add bonus's. This DVD is truely a rip off.

simple solution for all the whiners Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 25th, 2010
Every one complains that the clean up move is too obvious. The solution is simple. do the handling that Micheal Ammar did lately on the late show. this handling is fool proof & simple. You guys can stop crying now.

Balloon trick to have in your arsenal Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 3rd, 2010
As seen in the video, this effect is very visual and can be done surrounded. It requires absolutely no set-up, all you need is a balloon. I have done it with cell phones of all sizes. The wow factor seems to range from "Holy!!" to "wait a minute...". With that in mind, kids and teens seem to love it; I think my most skeptical audience members were adults.

One weak spot of the trick is that the moment the spectator sees his phone penetrate the balloon, he will instinctively reach for it. Unfortunately, you cannot simply give it to him. You must make a secret adjustment. I have found you can make the move in the open, nobody seems to understand what you're doing.

Considerations: The trick should not be performed with balloons that have writing or a design on them, as that can give an important clue to the secret.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2011
Not sure who some of the other reviewers have been showing this to but so far everyone I have done this for has been totally amazed. Simple, easy to do and quick to learn. Great impromptu trick, I will always be carrying around a few balloons from now on.

Great trick, bad dvd Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 15th, 2013
So this is a great trick. I actually figured part of it out before I watched it. It nice though for the fact that they show a few different handlings and how they go about the clean up is great. The dvd though is eh, a few random times they changed the lighting. The blooper reel was funny. and as far as paying $20 this was one of the few times I was glad with a magic purchase I made so I did not mind the price, do wish it was cheaper though for what you get.

Pressure - Extremely Visual Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 7th, 2013
I haven't actually purchased this effect yet. It's in my Cart as I'm shopping for other 'balloon' related items. From the Demo of Pressure, due to the very careful editing, I was not able to come close to figuring out how this could be accomplished. They left out certain angles, and, something else, which I won't even mention, as it will give away too much.

We must remember as magicians, we create 'illusions', some big, some small, so what 'illusion' are you trying to create with the cell & balloon.

After watching Mike Ammar's awesome performance on the Late Show twice, I knew how the 'illusion' was created. Not because of a bad performance. Mike Ammar is a Master magician. NO, but I understand balloons. It's SO visual. I LOVE it! I have balloons on order to practice this and will probably still order the DVD, just to support Dan & Dan. I'm a balloon twister of 28 years, so work with balloons everyday. Because of that, I kinda had an idea, but the careful editing prevented me, us, from seeing the 'whole' thing, start to finish.

This is an effect I will definitely be doing when I'm busking from now on. People around me are always either txting or have a cell in their hands.

All I can say is Thank You Dan & Dan for releasing this. I would have never thot of this. Beautiful, visual piece of magic. Add to cart. This is Killer!

Love it! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 5th, 2014
Pressure by Garcia and White is a great balloon trick. At the school I go to playing cards are on the ban list so this is a trick that is easy to carry and doesn't get me in trouble.

Unfortunately the price doesn't match up with the level of affect the trick offers and I would have priced it at less. The adlfja alfkjg afgfgsfg is hard to cover up and a lot of the people I have performed to have either guessed it or know something fishy is up.

Even with it's flaws I love this trick and will continue performing it and would recommend any magician, new or old, to buy Pressure.

Eh Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 10th, 2013
The Good: You really can use anyone's cell phone and balloon. The balloon is ungimmiicked. It's interactive because you get to use their cellphone. At the end, they can take the cell phone out.

The Bad: The secret, sleight of hand move has to happen right in front of them. If they don't see exactly what you are doing, they assume you do something sneeky right then because you have to do it right in front of their faces. And then is when they are watching you the most closely. It's easy to spot the move even if you do it well. I choose not to do this trick anymore because of this.
