“For the first time, after learning Adrian’s effects, I actually want to start performing online shows because his effects are so strong!” - David Penn

“Adrian Lacroix is creating contemporary miracles that deliver strong and unforgettable magic within the “simplicity” of a zoom call.”
- Luis De Matos

"Adrian’s ideas take magic for video-meetings to a whole new level. Very strong effects, ingenious methods, and even easy to do! I love Adrians work! He fooled me several times, and it made my day!" - Pit Hartling

Imagine this...
The spectator thinks of any card in the deck and it suddenly appears inside an empty wine glass.

Introducing LACAAN the cleanest and easiest A.C.A.A.N:

Imagine that a spectator names any card and any number between 1 to 52. You start to count cards from a blue deck (isolated in a wine glass from the beginning) to find on that position a red backed card that matches the named card.
The best comes to the end, when you show that the entire deck was blank!


And for the mentalists:

Imagine that you leave a single playing card, or a prediction of a word or of a number, written and isolated in a wine glass in full view all the time, and when you turn the glass this prediction perfectly matches with your audience choices.

You can even perform a confabulation routine, and more...

Adrian explains three principles that combined can be used to do “miracles” on a virtual shows.

Well folks, Adrian has done it again. I've writen some pretty harsh reviews on here, but so far I've been all cheers for this guy.

I am hoping you'll read this because I'm mad. I'm mad that I read other reviews elsewhere online that caused me to hold off for so long on buying this. We need to do some debunking.

"You can only do it on Zoom."

Ok, the exact trick as presented can be done only on Zoom or FaceTime or whatever. That's true. But the biggest, most important concept you learn on this can be done in other ways on stage. I have been playing around already with different colors (this will make sense after you buy it) and can't wait to come up with some stuff.

"You have to be in portrait mode, so it's not good for Zoom shows."

What the heck?!?! This is the rumor that caused me to wait so long to get this. It's not only totally false, it's complete nonsense. I suppose it's arguably easier to do that way, but I really do mean arguably. It hardly even makes a difference. I've been doing both. You just have to do it right, and then it makes no difference which way your phone is facing.

"You really need an accomplice to do this."

What? No. It would probably be even harder that way.

"It requires too much arts and crafts."

No it doesn't. This one for me too. I didn't want to have to print out screenshots of my apartment and create a fake background, and I really didn't even understand what else this possibly could have referred to. Anyway, you don't have to do any of that. You can use a single gaffe card that comes in any normal gaffe deck, or you can if you choose make an even better version the way he shows. I hate a lot of the arts and crafts stuff out there, yet even I opted to create the better version just because of how much I like this effect.

Overall: This is a true winner, just like everything else Adrian has been putting out during quarantine. I don't know him, never met, not even online friends, but I already love the guy. You should too.

I like to try to include at least one "con" in reviews, so here goes. As presented, the trick doesn't really have a plot of any sort. It's just "watch me do a cool thing." Now, that's not such a bad con because sometimes it's ok to just do a cool thing. Esp when it's really cool, like this is. But I would encourage folks to try to think of other ways to enhance this trick further -- to add in a cognitive element or storyline -- perhaps using the same principles but without a deck of cards at all. That's the biggest con I can offer on this one (even though it's not that big of a con), though, because like I said, it's a true winner!

Excellent for online videos Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 10th, 2020
everything is well explained on Half an hour tutorial covering everything, you could use this method with any prediction you wish, not only playing cards, & what's cool that you put the glass with a card prediction in full view site from the beginning, and anything they had in they thoughts will appear at the face of the card, you could use it with every mentalism online camera performance.

I watched Adrian perform this 3 or 4 times in one evening, each time being more and more baffled. after the last time I watched him do it I jumped on Penguin and purchased it. My only complaint is that he did not charge enough for this project, I would have gladly given an arm and a leg for it!

This is basically useless for face-to-face magic, but it is THE best effect I have ever seen for online shows.

The materials are available. The method is workable. You may want to try it on your mom and your dad first, just to work out the kinks.

Isolated Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 24th, 2020
These are camera effects, however don't get me wrong, they are beautiful. They can be used outside the camera with sleight of hand. The gimmick, and he shows how to make it, can be used in mentalism and he has some tips for its use.

Another hit from Adrian! You could do an entire virtual show just based on Adrian’s effects he’s released this year!! Isolated does take a little bit of prep (less than 5 min) and it does require that you go shopping for the right glass. (Easy to find and you may even have the right glass at home). There is a costume restriction, but Adrian gives you hints on how you can get around the restrictions. I had a question about this set up, so I reached out to Adrian and he quickly got back to me and helped me with a solution. Amazing customer service from the creator (Adrian). Takes a little
bit of practice but will be a great addition to your virtual shows. Love this!

the future of mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 28th, 2020
The concept behined this effect is, IMHO, the best and most valid concept for virtual shows. While a lot of effects fall short in this "bold new era", specially math based effects, this is the kind of effects that utilizes all aspects of the virtual domain, to create some amazing effects. This will take some practice, a little bit of DIY, but the end result is a fantastic effect.
