This is awesome. Very clever. When getting started get three to four packs of gum at least. Go to a
Wal Mark and get a value pack. The initial set up may take a few minutes and if you make a mistake
you will want to be prepared. Once you have it done, you will be set up to slay your audience. The
suprising amount of ideas that come with this DVD is crazy. An impossible transposition that looks
flawless. It looks like instant magic. Worth every penny. Sanders demonstrations are clearly
visible,simple and so very strong. Exactly what magic should be. The visual vanish is a what the
gimmicks are included for and that is what they describe as "never" needs replacing. As far as
"nothing" needs replaced. It is true for the gimmick. However, If someone opens your gum and you
want to perform it again you will obviously need to purchase another pack of gum. There is an
alternative offering on the DVD that shows you a version you could perfrom with a pack of gum with
several pieces missing. A "sloppy" version. I like the unopened version. It is clean, sleek and
amazing. Foil is NEVER tampered with and the corner is actually INSIDE. I give it a nine out of 10
simply because the visual reveal gimmick is something you need to make. There is a good reason for
this, it allows you the flexability to use different types of gum depending on availability in your
are it still may be awkward for some people to get it just right. Another bonus...if you ever
arrive in a town for a show and you have no props, you can stop at any store get a few items, invest
a little time and have an insanely awesome reveal for little to nothing. The reward on investment is
a no brainer. Get this.

I just recieved this trick and I recommand it to anyone that wants to amaze people. I have not done
it yet but by looking at the dvd I must say that you could do it anytime and anywhere and look like
a professional magician. It is clean and done at any angle.There is no limit to what you can do with
this trick. Get it and you will not regret it.

This effect is stunning and the finished product looks so insane that even I think it's magic at
times. This effect is visual, clean, stunning, with sort of a hint of Tommy Wonder Style magic to
it. The spectator holds an impossible item in their hands the entire effect and don't realize it
until the last second. From the time they see the bill in the packet until they pop it out the foil
and hand you back the packet there is 100% nothing to hide. There is legitimately an object inside
of a sealed gum pack. Plus there are so many possibilities besides for cards and bills! With a wave
of your hand 1 (or multiple if you think about it) piece(s) of gum can change color. A piece of gum
can have an imprint of a selected card on the piece of gum. There are so many possibilities if
you're a little creative.
Now for the down side. The gimmick does take a while to make 30
minutes to an hour I've found depending on a few variables especially the brand of gum you use. The
gum I use comes in 2 packs of 8 for . You can use one pack of gum multiple times, but I find it's no
big deal to replace gum at that price. But the time it takes to make these gimmicks is the big down
side. This effect works best for me as an effect for potential or on the fence clients. This seems
like something that will get me bookings, but not a part of my regular act. To sum it up, this is
more of a "special occasions" trick.

It does was it says, but be prepared to do some crafting.
You can't leave the impossible
object with the spectator; that'll be expecting too much. That'll be scary too - meaning the
integrity of a sealed product can be compromised.
The effect is nice and the method quite
adaptable. I don't like mixing a bill with something you'd eat, but the method doesn't limit you to
that. You can put anything in (as long as it fits in the space).
Part of the gimmick is
re-usable - so once you take the time to make it once, you shouldn't have to anymore. There are
other ideas on the DvD like how to make the gimmick faster, and other routine ideas.
suggest going the extra mile and make the additional gimmick for the visual appearance inside the
The DvD instruction wasn't that bad, but preferred that they didn't overdo
the camera shift to make it look cooler. The instructions weren't all done by Richard, but pretty

Look at the title. Simple routines are given to do with a borrowed bill. It works perfectly and
everything can be examined by the spectator before and after the gum and corner is popped out of the
pack. You can give the pack to the spectator and let him open it himself. Total impossibility! I'm a
new fan Sanders!

This is probably the best trick I've gotten from Penguin. What a simple and elegant idea! This trick
blows people's minds and it's relatively easy to do. With minimal slight of hand, and a reset that
is not overbearing, I perform this all the time with the biggest reactions I've had so far in my
short magic career. I don't know why I didn't think of this myself!!

Wow this effect is superb. Honestly it might be one of the best effects I've ever seen. The dvd
quality is great, it's fun to watch and the effect and method are amazing.
routine is the time travel routine. But all of the routines are great. Sanders/Ye and Spidey are
all greats. The method is great. Will take a bit of time and a little set up. But it's so
deceptive and ingenious. After you uncover the secret you'll be like: Why didn't I think of that.
add this to your collection. Just add to cart.
I usually perform to family and friends. This effect is amazing. Very visual and very simple to
perform. Terrific method but nowadays it is very difficult to find these kind of gum packs.
My son got this trick a year ago and continues to by magic tricks has lost the gimmick that came
with it. The gimmick is very small, and lost it.
Initially skeptical, I unwrapped the cellophane prison guarding the neatly kept secrets within. The
contents did little to solidify the promises splashed across the back of the DVD case. I held aloft
the gimmick within, eyebrow raised and still unsure if I had made the right decision to part with my
hard earned money. The DVD clicked into the drive and the video started. Little did I know Pandora
had created a second box, this one, a weapon that instill awe disbelief and sheer wonder.
Routine - You are armed with a few routines, as Richard sanders takes you on a roller coaster
journey. Each step is cunningly explained and beautifully executed. I will take a moment to make
special note to: Bedros "Spidey" Akkelian who weaves a web of intrigue with beautiful storytelling
that renders all those assaulted in stunned silence and disbelief. Devon Ye's calm narrative disarms
naysayers tearing the very fabric of reality.
Gimmick - The gimmick invoked
a multitude of ideas, birthing new methods of execution and prestidigitation. Wile Ultra gum can be
shown without, it adds an extra layer on an already wondrous routine.
In conclusion, I
cannot stress enough how this "trick" raises the bar for all others to come. I would suggest that
you, dear reader, launch handfuls of money in hopes to grasp, own and be inspired as I have. Then
again, part of me wishes you do not, and I alone command the contents of the package
