Steal This DVD is a collection of 7 effects from the mind of Eric Ross which are sure to stun even the most perceptive spectators. On this DVD, Eric utilizes everything from playing cards to rubber bands to a needle and thread. All the effects are taught in great detail with multiple real life performances on the streets of New Orleans.

Think Ink
A card is chosen and placed back in the deck. A notebook is introduced and a blank page is ripped out. The paper is dipped into a glass of water (or any beverage) and the selected card appears on the paper in bright color. The piece of paper can be examined before during and after the effect and kept as an unbelievable souvenir.

Two rubber bands are shown and examined. The bands are held very openly and with no funny moves the bands link. This has got to be one of the most visual rubber band links to date.

This one is spooky. A card is chosen and placed back in the deck. Inspired by how Superman could freeze things with his breath, you blow onto a nearby window and their selection appears in the fog. The greatest thing about this one is that no gimmicks are required.

So visual and so unexpected. A card is selected and lost in the deck. When the first attempt to find the card fails, you instruct the audience to picture their card on the back of another playing card. With a flick the card explodes to reveal their selected card.

This is a card and bill transpo that gets screams! A bill is borrowed, folded and placed into the spectators hand. A card is then chosen from the deck. Upon inspection of the deck their card has vanished and a dollar bill is in its place. When they open their hand it is revealed that they are now holding their selected card.

Book Smart
Mentalism meets magic in a new and fun way. A spectator selects a page from a book, inspects it and notes the page number. A card is then chosen and placed back in the deck. The spectator is instructed to burn that card into their mind. Startled, you say, "I told you to burn it into your mind, not the book." When you go to the selected page... their selected card is now burnt into the page.

The Infection
This truly bizarre effect allows you to thread your ear piercing with a needle and thread and allow a spectator to rip the thread straight through your ear. This is a beautiful performance piece that will make you stand out from the common trickster.

Running Time Approximately: 72min

So Disappointing Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 5th, 2013
I got this video expecting a professional video that would show me how to do a few cool, visual tricks. That's not what I got. Eric Ross seems to not care about the video at all. It looks as if he was forced to make this video. The teaching is sloppy, the showmanship is ridiculous, and the tricks are very predictable. The reason I gave this video two starts is because there is only two effects on the video I will use, and they still aren't that good. Breathe was my favorite effect, even though it is obvious and doesn't always work. The other effect is think ink. It was the only valuable effect on the video. I wouldn't recommend this.

A few good effects Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 2nd, 2013
Any time I can find a multiple-effect DVD that gives me at least 3 good effects on it, I call that one a winner. It's a sad state of affairs, but the facts are that many magic DVDs are filler with a couple of gems in there. "Steal This DVD" has seven effects on it, and more than half are worth watching, while a couple aren't.

"Xplode" is a gem. Easy to set up, easy to perform, and easy to create (minor craft skills required). The thing that makes this worth it is the fact that you don't see this kind of reveal in any other effect. Your spectators will be caught off guard. "Think Ink" follows suit with another great reveal, though the item needed to make it work is getting harder to find now. '

"Wager", "Book Smart" and "Breathe" will probably find their way into your act as well if you are looking for something off the wall to perform.

What I like about this DVD is the fact that it's not all just card tricks that repeat the same "Is this your card?" reveal at the end. Five of the effects on the DVD are indeed card reveals, but they are different enough that if you them it won't feel like you're doing card tricks, if that makes sense.

Alot if homemade stuff Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 18th, 2013
If you get this you'll learn something. This is always true, if or not you'll use it is uncertain. Don't let this sway you from actually studying showmanship and learning to present your material in an entertaining way. Even the coolest effect can be destroyed with bad delivery. This performer could certainly benefit from the Dariel Fitzkee book "Showmanship for Magicians". The video has one real gem, the Pilot Frixion pen...shhhhh, don't tell that one.
