"I absolutely love it." -Dan Harlan
Our video shows the money shot about 4-5 times, because you WON'T BELIEVE it the first few times you see it.
Faster than you can BLINK, a dollar turns into a chosen card. There are no words to describe how STUNNING this transformation is.
1. A card is chosen and a dollar is borrowed.
2. The dollar is held at the fingertips and INSTANTLY changes into their chosen card.
Put this stick-of-dynamite into almost any card trick you do.
PROFESSIONALS: The most STARTLING thing about this transformation isn't just that it's instant. It's also that the two objects are different sizes. It's like trick photography.
PLEASE NOTE that the gimmick will work with MOST currencies including US/Canadian/Australian Dollar, UK Pound, Euro.

The routine is really impressive and fantastic and the change is really very visual
One of the worst tricks I EVER bought anywhere! Buyers Beware! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 21st, 2015
I have bought a lot of things throughout my career. I first did put an order at penguin in 2005! Of course not always is a trick great, however Money Shot here is just beyond words. I was extremly looking forward receiving and performing it. It looks so insanely visual. It really does. So what makes this a garbage product?14 of 16 magicians found this helpful.
The gimmick is a single, standard playing card (!!!) with a little extra to it, I cannot further go into detail about. If you are not new to magic, you can already imagine how long a damn single standard (e.g. non plastic, or hardened in anyway) playing card lasts? You haven have to crease the card multiple times. Then you have to wear the gimmick in your pocket until you are ready to perform. Have you have had a playing card in your pocket for a whole evening??? Can you imagine what this card will look like after one or two evenings of performing? If the gimmick was something to attach to a card so you can replace it and always be sure to have a fresh crisp card/gimmick...but not in here.
But wait, there is more! In order to perform it like you have seen it, you have to actually destroy money. Thats right. No mentioning of this anywhere before you bought it. For countries with non 1$ Bills it is extremly annyoing! You think I am done? Hell, no!
One of the more interesting routines on the explanation is having the spectator borrowing you a bill. Then they teach you how to do the trick with their money and leave out the entire ending! I am not joking. You place their money into your pocket (!), do the routine which leads to having a money bill changed to a playing card and then they end the trick. Did it ever occur to the creators that the spectator would like to have their frickkin money back? They leave it up to you how you get out of this. They do not even mention it! And of course you cannot simply reach into the same pocket again and grab their bill and say: oh by the way here is your bill...so have fun working it out for yourself.
One more? Sure. Once you put Money Shot into your cart and buy it there is no option of which color of the gimmick you want. I got a damn blue one. I never use blue cards in any of my acts. So what now? After all the BS I went through with this trick I am not even able to perform it properly because they randomly send you a gimmick, weather it fits into your routines or not. I cannot believe this. The trailer was showing a red deck of cards and whole time, every single shot of the gimmick it is red! And I get a damn blue one. Just wow...
Oh hey there is even another point. They do NOT teach how to make this ridiculously expensive gimmick yourself. Thats right. You receive the most fragile gimmick ever and no instructions how to make on yourself after this single card is looking like crap. 25 bucks for a single gimmick and if this is done you have to figure it out by yourself how to reproduce it, or you buy a new one for 25 bucks + shipping.
I am so p#ssed about this. Unbelievable. One of the very worst effects I have ever bought. I totally feel ripped off!

Crazy Visual-helpful advice in the review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 10th, 2014
The gimmick works very well, the change is extremely visual. It looks as good as in the video. The gimmick comes ready to use, as soon as you add a little extra thing on it which doesn't take much time or effort.7 of 7 magicians found this helpful.
However, I will include some ideas that I found helpful but were not mentioned on the DVD.
To begin with, choose a bill that matches the colour of the playing card that comes in the package as much as possible. It will hide the gimmick better in performance.
Secondly, it is very likely that after you make the gimmick some parts of it are exposed after the change. While there is a suggestion in the DVD of how to make this look better I found out that placing the gimmick under a pile of heavy books for a few hours makes it better and then the change will look as smooth as in the video here.
Lastly, if you want to reveal a different card every time work on your routine and it is possible. I give a quick example.
Bill is borrowed by spect. card is freely chosen and signed, secretly perform a mercury card fold, show the "borrowed bill", change it into a folded card, draw attention to the deck and reveal the bill among the cards and during this time switch the gimmick with the originally signed and folded card.
After watching the DVD you will see how you can apply this idea to the main routine described.

I have been playing with this for a few days now and without question if handled right its a very visual trick. The big plus is the way it just seems to "pop" from bill to card. The reason I could not give it 5 stars however are:6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
1) You cannot give out the card (and its risky to throw it on the table as is done in the demo video)
2) You do have to watch your angles
3) Bringing a bill into play on a card trick seems a little odd (well I guess magicians are odd!) I actually like doing this with a change bag also used.
4) I am concerned about the gimmicks' durability. In only two days of doing this (and I may have practiced it to much but hey you have to practice anything good in magic), the card is already looking frazzled at the seams where you bend it. It seems to me to that the more I use it the more the gimmick may show something.
Don't get me wrong this is a great trick but there are areas to address and getting replacement gimmicks is going to be one of them.

Gimmick Issue Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 19th, 2015
I love the Trick - HOWEVER . . without giving anything away - I can say that the gimmick is halfway created for you - then you need to work on it a bit to get it ready. My gimmick seemed fine at first - but by the time I finished finalizing the gimmick . . it would no longer close all the way. It is an ingenious device. However the mechanism is very delicate. I can still do the trick - just have to watch the angles and hold the card very securely once the Bill-to-Card change has occurred.4 of 4 magicians found this helpful.
BTW - you will need to purchase a special Deck. But the effect - even with these issues - is so shocking and amazing that I cannot remove more than one Star.

GET THIS EFFECT NOW. If I could give it a million stars I would.3 of 5 magicians found this helpful.
I absolutely love visual effects, and this is one of the best. They're so awesome and in-your-face that you can't ignore it. This one definitely delivers!
The gimmick is genius and you can tell by the audience's response how baffling it is to a full audience, parlor or street magic. Mickael gives many different possibilities for you to perform this beautiful piece of magic, and you should!
You can play with the gimmick with or without a deck really.. Especially if you can mentally force a card! Seriously.. Top notch stuff!!! I'm going to add this to my Envylope act as a finisher, because it is a STRONG one!!!
Awesome!!! Report this review

I wish I felt this way about all the magic I purchase! But this is one of the first effects I can truly say I will carry around with me at all times, no matter what. Worth every penny! Once you customize the gimmick to your liking, the handling variations are limitless. I even came up with two more very visual handlings that I will be making available to the creator of this effect this November. From beginners to pro's, this one is really worth the $$$ and practice effort! Thank You!!!2 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

This is just too good! Why? Why would you want to sell it! For $10,000 I wouldn't sell this effect! It's just that good! Thank you Mickael for this awesome gimmick that I plan to use a lot! The pros of this is a huge list! The cons only contain one thing: refills? Thanks again for creating this! - kisela1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.
