You show it visually and audibly empty, then in an instant, right up close to the spectators, you push the card into the side of the balloon and they SEE and HEAR it go INSIDE!
Pass it around for inspection or leave it on their table as an impossibly fair sealed prediction.
Want to take it one step further? Have a card selected and signed, lose it in your deck of cards and then have the spectator pop the balloon.
The prediction card inside is now THEIR SIGNED CARD!
You can also use PIERCED with your own favorite magic effects to produce your spectators signed card. It's a powerful ending for ambitious card, and a stunning stand alone opener and closer all built into one!
Chris Piercy sits down with Ben Williams to teach you his PIERCED routine in detail, with all the tips, extras and techniques he has developed from using this in his professional close-up act for years. All necessary sleights and a load of effects are taught, but once you know the secret the possibilities are near endless!
You learn the routine, the sleights the variations, plus essential tips and ideas.
This is a new principle with applications for close-up magicians, mentalists, table-hoppers, street magicians and more.
The REAL value of Pierced in your working close-up magic
Pierced can be used as a complete routine, or as a perfect opener and closer to your act. Approach a table and show a prediction you made earlier. SLAM it inside a balloon then leave it on the table or with the spectators, while you perform your other routines. Then to close, have the balloon popped to reveal a signed card you used in one of your previous effects! It's a super strong closer that will tie all your routines together and create a FRAME for them to be presented in. If your looking for continuity between the different effects you perform, this is the answer!
