This underground routine is one of the best kept secrets in card magic. https://t.co/TMUCT..
You borrow a lightweight object from a spectator. Just ask for anything they have in their pocket
(paper works best...). They pull out something... it could be a dollar bill, business card, gum wrapper, parking ticket, napkin, tissue, receipt, report card, postage stamp, to-do list, piece of aluminum foil, love-letter, post-it note, coupon, crumpled up phone number... it really doesnt matter what they pull out... as long as its lightweight and you can fold it.
You give it a fold in half. You can fold object either the long way or the short way... you can even crumple it up if you wish. Next, you set the object in your hand with your palm face-up. The object hasnt started floating yet... but gradually it starts to appear lighter... its as though gravity is relaxing away... or maybe the wind is catching it just right...
As you continue to concentrate on the object it begins to float. At first it floats for just a fraction of a second. You touch the object from the top with your index finger. As youre pointing down at the object you remove your other hand from underneath completely.
The object follows your finger back and forth through the air. Soon you remove your hands from the object completely. You wave your hands on the top, bottom, and both sides of the object. You even form your fingers into a circle and run them around the object.
The Grand Finale
In one of the cleanest (and most-fun to perform) finishes in all of magic you unfold/un-crumple the object right before your spectators eyes. With no funny moves, (no swallowing, ditching, switching, breaking, reeling, or de-waxing) you hand the borrowed object back to your spectator and perfectly enunciate the magic words... No Strings Attached! (Its very difficult not to smile at this moment so go ahead and smile).
Your spectators can immediately grab and search for strings... they can hug and kiss you, cook your dinner, buy you presents... but theyll never find a thing. They can take out a search warrant if they like... youll float that too! Youre already set-up for next time!
(The name "No Strings Attached" is the final line in the suggested patter for this effect. A special type of advanced invisible thread is used.) The thread is easy to set-up and comes already stripped and ready for immediate use.
The only restriction with this effect is that it must be performed in the area that it has been set-up. It is excellent for use at home, on the streets, at work, at school, on stage, during speaking engagements, at parties, etc., but it is not ideal for table hopping/strolling magicians. Many restaurant workers use The House, but in a central part of the restaurant and not at each table individually.
