Imagine the best magic, the best magicians, and the best producers all in one place.Imagine no more...Cigarette Through Quarter
If you could have one set of magic DVDs, this would be it! This benchmark collection features just about all of magic's most enduring and classic effects and routines. It's a fabulous compendium with many of the top masters in the world of magic teaching their handlings and routines for some of magic's classics. Linking rings, sponge balls, metal bending, cups and balls, thumb tips, Zombie, color-changing knives, and many, many more topics are all gathered in this one terrific DVD reference set. Each volume covers a specific subject and features new, old, and sometimes rare footage by some of the top video producers in magic.
The Cigarette Through Quarter is a modern classic of magic, only made possible by one of the most ingenious gimmicked coins ever invented. With the help of this miracle of modern machining, a solid object can be pushed straight through the middle of a borrowed coin-one of the most magical and memorable feats that a magician can perform. On this DVD, you'll see six modern masters each perform their own version of this impossible feat.
In this volume, you'll learn a variety of approaches to this classic effect. You'll first see David Roth's classic approach followed by J.J. Sanvert's utilization of the routine to demonstrate why smoking is bad for you. You'll also learn Derek Dingle's complete routine, which includes a cigarette production, some magically appearing matches and a pseudo-explanation that will leave spectators even more puzzled. The set is rounded out by Garrett Thomas's space-age version using a laser and a pen, Dan Fleshman's family-friendly take with a crayon, and finally, Michael Ammar's neo-classic routine using a pencil. Additionally, Ammar also teaches his Flip Switch move, hailed as the best and most invisible way to switch the gimmicked coin in and out of play. DAVID ROTH
