A mysterious twist on a classic effect. A borrowed $100 bill is marked with a sigil of protection. It is put in one of 3 envelopes. The other envelopes hold slips of newspaper.

Three lighters are proven to operate and are randomly selected by 3 spectators. The envelopes are mixed by the spectators and handed, in order, to each spectator.

You claim the sigil will protect the money through the powers of nature. The first spectator ignites his lighter and burns his envelope. The second spectator does the same. The final spectator cannot light his lighter! The remaining envelope is unharmed! When the envelope is opened, it contains the borrowed money. Whew!

Finally, the sigil is erased from the $100 bill, and without the sigil to protect it the money starts burning. You quickly extinguish it and take your bows.

With a very few props, this is big theatre that packs a punch! Add real meaning to your performance:

  • It's direct!
  • It's fun!
  • The sigil protects the money, even when its location in unknown!
  • In this act the spectators NEVER fail; in fact, they succeed!
  • It's fair!
  • It's spectacular!
  • There's a completely free choice of envelopes AND lighters.
  • Three spectators, money, suspense, and FIRE! That's theatrical!
  • It's safe!
  • It's simple!
  • There is no chance of the lighter burning the money or even igniting.

This really "packs small and plays big!" You'll be performing this piece right after reading the instructions.

I was very happy to see a description that described the effect honestly... until I got to the line that said, "There's a completely free choice of envelopes AND lighters.". This is absolutely not true. One choice can be free, but certainly not both. The performer must ensure that the selections align properly. You can't possibly let both choices be completely free.

That said, this could be a fun effect. The idea of lighting a spectator's bill on fire creates some good tension. There is some handling you'll have to work on, but nothing especially difficult. I just wish the ad copy had resisted the urge to make the effect seem more miraculous than it really is.
