Greg Wilson's the master of the "playful con-artist" genre of magic, and this is a perfect example of his genius.

He's got an incredible knack for turning classic tricks into reputation makers. "I.O.U" is a miracle that takes the classic "bill change", and turns it into a masterpiece, complete with improved handling, built-in laughs and a con-artist twist.

You'll learn:

1. Greg Wilson's handling for visually changing money.
2. His BRILLIANT method for cleaning up the evidence.
3. How to make things appear in anyone's wallet or purse.
4. Greg's pacing, choreography and lines to make this a sure-fire hit with any audience.

PROFESSIONALS: There's a big difference between knowing a trick's secret, and learning how a professional magician uses it in the real world. Greg Wilson's a master of the "con-job" genre of magic, and this is the perfect example of his genius.

A Bold Twist Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2016
I.O.U.is a hoot! Doing it is more fun than magical humans usually have with a routine!
This takes the "Bill Switch" effect and makes it fun to do. I've never been a fan of the Hundred Dollar bill switch because the spectators always feel that they should be offered the big bill.So, you change it back and the amazement now becomes an, "AW"
With I.O.U. you switch a bill for a piece of paper that says I.O.U. that not only switches but shows up in their wallet or purse! And then you cahnge it back and the effect ends with a fun time and real amazement! It also gives them a tale to tell their friends and if you play it right you may get work from it.

Welllllll... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 19th, 2016
Let me begin by saying that I am a huge fan of Gregory Wilson. I owe my start in magic to his "On the Spot" and "Double Lift" videos many years ago. I own probably everything he has introduced. He is amazing. That being said. Bill switch to an IOU is not new and unique. I personally have never thought of pulling a bill out of a wallet but I'm sure thats not new either. So, I thought maybe there's a tip (pun intended) in there that makes it unique. There is not. It is what it is assuming you have bill switch skills. So, I look at it as supporting the cause. $10 to support magic. It is a routine I will use. So I would say don't just steal it, pay for it and you will use it but don't expect anything more than what you see.

Powerful! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2016
For those saying "Nothing new here". What were you expecting? It's obvious it is an old method, however, it provides an excellent tutorial for it that is easy to follow. Additionally, you get to see how it is performed in real time, which is always useful.

In addition to this, you get Greg's patter and wonderful ending, of which is extremely powerful to the spectator.

If you're worried about making it go to their wallet, pull it out of your own wallet, it can be just as powerful. I combined it with a card to wallet and it completely flawed my spectators!

What are we, little kids? Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 14th, 2016
I can hear little kids chanting: "We know how you do that! We know how you do that!"

OF COURSE, we know...because we've spent all our lives on magic sites or watching magic dvd's., which makes us freaks.

The point is Greg's MAGIC IS THEATER. Have we learned how to really PERFORM: his posture, voice, pauses, revelations...

We get to see HOW GREG Wilson does the trick -- and learn magic all over again.

IOU Greg Wilson Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 4th, 2016
Greg Wilson never fails. He devised magical effects with easy to carry and to learn effects. IOU is no different. I look forward to each and every new thing Gregory comes out with.

I.O.U. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 29th, 2016
It wasn't that I didn't have a clue as to how he was doing this. I did! But Greg's presentation and little nuances were stimulating. The thinking behind this effect causes creative juices to flow for other applications.

Well worth the $10.00!

All abot performance Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2016
We know what's going on, so really looking for presentation and subtleties of performance. Greg gives us this. Not sure it's worth the price, but I always enjoy Greg and have used quite a bit of his material.

Here's a GREAT line for an IOU trick. "Just so you know, I'd rather die owing it to you than cheat you out of it"

Worker that will hit em' hard! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 25th, 2016
I really enjoyed this effect! I pretty much knew what I was getting when I purchased. In my professional strolling, card to wallet is one of the strongest effects I can do for laymen. So I appreciated doing a bill to wallet. One that it is the SPECTATOR's wallet. While I have not performed it yet. If I did have a gig between when I purchased it and now I would have definitely done so! I love that it uses techniques ($100 bill change) I am already proficient at in a different way. I love that Greg is a working pro road-testing each routine thoroughly before putting out a "good idea." His nuances and tips are invaluable. I have seen him lecture in person before he never disappoints! This is another example of his wonderful thinking and justification for a routine. It is NOT a new, exciting method. It is a stunning, jaw-dropping routine that will knock out laymen! As soon as I watched the whole video I knew this would be a part of my regular act. That is saying a lot because I have bought lots of toys:gimmicks and gaffs that looked cool. This one involves no overly complex gaff or set-up so I know this is one I will use! If you want a real world effect you a can do surrounded, taking almost no pocket space, and to destroy laymen's minds this will deliver!

NOTHING NEW ! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 22nd, 2016
Greg is one of the top magicians of our time. If you don´t know his work, I
recommend his 2 Penguin Lectures and his On The Spot DVD.

About this product:

PROS:
- If you don´t know how to do the switch, this is for you. It´s a great
introduction to the move. Greg explains it very well !

- Greg talks about some finesses that he tolds were from Michael Ammar (another top magician of our time).

- As all Greg material, you will be laughing and learning a great plot to use (if you live in a country
where english is your native language)

CONS:
-If you are, like me, that already knows how to do the move, you will be frustrated. When I see a Greg
Wilson product, I expect a new move, a new variation, something new. He uses the classical move and nothing more.
So, if you already know the classical move, you won't learn anything new. You will be buying only the presentation.

- If you are, like me, that lives in a country that english is not your language, nor the presentation you will be
buying because I.O.U. means nothing in my language. I know that for english language this is a great gag, but I
will be thinking in something great to present this.

So, for me, this was not worth !

If you like this switching plot, I would recommend other 2 products that you may like:
- Switch (book) by John Lovick - He teaches the story of the move and lots of variations (with or without gimmicks);
- Hundred Dollar Bill (dvd) by Jay Sankey - If you prefere vidoes, Jay teaches you the classical move and lots of variations !!!

Hope it helps,

Jack
