What The Audience Sees:
“So Jamie asks me to think of a card and say it out loud. Nothing crazy. I picked the seven of clubs. He tells me, though, that he took that card out of the deck this morning and left it at home. No way, right! Well, he says he’s going to use the two Jokers to go home and get it! He shows me the two Jokers when, all of a sudden, there’s a card between them. But you know what?! It wasn’t the seven of clubs- no, it was this crazy card that had all fifty-two on it! It was hilarious!! But then Jamie, as always, tells me to hold on…and THE FIFTY-TWO CARD CHANGED INTO MINE! It was outta control!!!!!”
How It Went:
Okay, what can I tell you- I love easy magic. There, I said it. Sometimes faros just give me a migraine and all I want is some self-worker. Guilty! And the 52 vs Joker Project is pretty much that. Not only is it dead easy, but it also does nothing to my deck- super bonus! So to say Friday was a pleasure is an understatement. It was just a majorly fun day. And, for reasons I’m not even sure of myself, it was because of that 52 on 1 card. You wouldn’t believe the laughs it got! Why? It’s not like it’s funny or anything but, for whatever reason, people simply laughed when they saw it. Weird, yet awesome.
And, as you’ll see by watching the video here in a second, it goes off without a hitch. When I did it all day last week, there was nary a problem as there’s almost nothing to catch. Even the appearance of the 52 card is a shocker- it just looks really good.
If you can hold a deck of cards in your hand, you should be good to go.
”Chris! Chris! Did you see that?!”
~Whenever people look to their friends for validation that they’re not hallucinating, I know I’ve got a winner.
“HAHAHAHAHAH. Look at that! That’s awesome!”
~I had no idea the 52 on 1 card is so popular amongst lay people.
Angry Bob Rating:
For those of you reading this article for the first time, Angry Bob is a co-worker who has an understanding of some magic because his uncle was a magician. Angry Bob knows that TT’s exist, for example, but he has no desire to become a magician himself. He also has an anger management problem that can be experienced first hand if he can’t figure out how a trick is done. A high rating means he has no idea.
“Yeah yeah, my card’s going to appear between the Jokers, m&#tha(^&^. Big deal…wha?! What the %^@^ is this &@*. Find my card idiot!…^#%^#, how did you do that!" 4.5/5.
Magic Friday Approved!
By simply tossing an extra card into my deck, I’m good to go! Fantastic!
