Amazing Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on June 27th, 2011
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.
Great for the Right Situation Report this review

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.
SO Spectacular Report this review

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!!
Crazy and complete Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 9th, 2012
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!
Just as advertised Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 18th, 2012
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.
I'd suggest going the extra mile and make the additional gimmick for the visual appearance inside the sealed packet.
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 good nonetheless.
Hated it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Report this review

If I could I'll give it negative stars. I really dislike this trick because its really noticeable. He says "if you do it correctly they won't notice ". I tried so many times, they will notice how it works. It's better to save your money on something else.
Nothing short of Incredible Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 1st, 2011
There are a lot of over-hyped tricks out there that aren't practical at all but get a lot of attention and advertising. You won't find that here. This is just PURE, PRACTICAL, VISUAL, MAGIC. This is what real magic is. Richard does a phenomenal job of presenting several routines that get your own brain thinking. This system is really only limited by your imagination. This is not necessarily an easy trick though. To get the most out of it you need to put in time and patience. Making the gimmick can be a bit time consuming, but when it is made correctly it is MINDBLOWING. You also need to have good showmanship to build this effect to its fullest potential. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an incredible TOOL that can be used casually in everyday life. You don't need an excuse to bring a pack of gum into play in your magic, which only adds to the effectiveness of this system. EVERYONE KNOWS GUM. This is so powerful and yet so simple. BUY THIS.
2011 TRICK OF THE YEAR CONTESTANT Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 2nd, 2011
Well, I just completed my review of Rattled by Dan Hauss and I now know who it's competition is for Trick of the Year 2011. If you want to leave a lasting impression for your next magic gig OR land your next gig this one will surely do the job, hands down!
Your spectators won't know what hit them upon the final revelation. I personally enjoy the card trick that Richard clearly explains in the DVD where the chosen card is found inside the pack of gum sitting infront of them the whole time, then the trick is repeated with the torn corner found inside your chosen factory sealed gum. Good Luck!

Not Just a Trick... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2011
I will start by saying this is ingenious. If you are willing to put in a mild effort you can perform all the routines on the DVD well and you will offer your usual (and unusual) audiences something they truly have never seen before.
I would also like to point out that this is not merely a trick but a gateway to a myriad of effects with this concept. I have heard MANY ideas that people have been coming up with involving this effect and they are above and beyond what is typical and traditional.
Do not hesitate to invest in this effect unless you live near me and intend to perform this effect for the same audiences I will be perform for.
I do not know Richard Sanders personally, nor am I Canadian, but know this: He will go to great lengths to put out a QUALITY product that is ABOVE par.
Ultra awesome Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2011
like many of u I'm sure I saw the demo and thought I have to have this! So I bought it. And let me just say this is one of the best effects I've bought in a while along with psypher. Very strong and definitely a reputation maker. The setup can be a bit tedious (you have to reset after every performance obviously) but well worth for the moment of astonishment that is sure to ensue. I only have one recommendation (if this isn't a reveal) u will néed a pk ring for the visual change but I bought one just for that reason and (obviously) it's opened up doors for new tricks and ideas. All in all a must buy!!! The constant setup is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. This is a dead easy super magical effect add to cart!!!!!!!!!!! (u can thank me later) :)
