Lee Asher

Ambitious Explosion

It was this effect by Lee Asher that influenced our own style of card magic and spawned a new generation of young magicians performing visual close-up magic.

With three phases beginning with the Silver Surfer - an animated handling to double lift that instantly brings life to the effect, followed by Slap Happy - an awesome way to bring a selected card to top. INSTANTLY! And finally, ending with an Ambitious Explosion , still one of our favorite four-ace productions.

Of the three phases, Slap Happy has to be my favourite. Very visual, and very effective. A great trick all round to expand your repertoire.

More than 20 minutes detailing one of the most direct and visual ambitious card routines ever created!



This routine is Uber-Magical. The first phase is very skillful looking with the card basically floating down the spread. The second phase is instant, yet head-slappingly simple- this is one of the things I love about card magic.



The final ace production comes from nowhere, It is almost like you just decided that you wanted the aces- and there they are! The ace production IS difficult, but it is more of a knack than a "move" similar to the duck change, or a pushoff double. There is a reason why Lee's magic is so well known the world over!

A very visual trick. The ending is one of the most visual ace production I've ever seen. It's simple yet VERY effective. Slap happy is something I have added to my other routines. I like how the phases can be strung together or used separately (i.e. in an acr). Ace production isn't easy but it's worth the practice.

Great card routine! My favorite by far!



More than 20 minutes of detailed instructions of each phase with added tips. Plus you can put parts of this routine into your own routine --- I personally like slap happy as it's super easy and visual. Highly recommend this for magicians who can handle a deck of cards very well. It's rather difficult so do not get this if you are a beginner.



AND ITS GREAT FOR THE PRICE!

This is a reat routine if you want to give your acr some more flare. The Silver Surfer is a great addition to something you probably already do, however it looks much cooler. Slap Happy is aslo a very visual move that makes the routine seem much more magical. Finally, the Ambitious Explosion is an awsome production that your spectators will never see coming. Over all if you want to make your acr better, this is the video for you.

This is one of Lee's best work to me. I never really enjoy these types of routines but this just blew my mind. Ever phase up to phase 2 is easy and the spectator have nothing to suspect. But the production is REALLY HARD, it takes a high amount of practice but if you get it right it will be one of your favourite 4 card productions.

I really love this effect, the best part according to me would be the final display and silver surfer. Silver surfer reminded me of Dan and Dave's tribeca double which I use all the time. The Ambitious explosion is a little hard cause I have really dry hands but all in all it was a great investment.

Incredibly visual, each stage can be done on its own with good reactions. Slap happy is extremely good as a convincer and a trick in its own right. Make no mistake, all three will take practice but they are definitely worth it.

This is a very powerful set of phases, all of which can be used on their own! Now, I'm only eleven and I thought that this was definitely worth the price and the practice. This is a very good set, which can be a good thing to add to your repertoire.

For three new moves that you can either use separately or together in this routine, this is a great video for an excellent price. Once the moves are mastered you will have an excellent addition

to your magical repertoire. The difficulty rating doesn't lie, and the moves in this routine will take quite a bit of practice.
