Card Tricks Suck

By Jonathan Friedman - Sunday, January 19, 2020


This one is STRANGE! A striped straw is displayed, and then two cards are selected and lost back into the pack. The magician “sucks big time” by actually using the straw to suck one of the selections up and completely off of the deck! The second selection seems to be harder to slurp up, as if the straw were perhaps clogged. Instead of sucking, our big-lunged magician blows as hard as they can into the straw, causing the stripe on the side of it to instantly morph into the second chosen card!

A nice twist at the end - although it would be pretty amazing to use a (duplicate) Ace of Hearts INSIDE the straw. You can get very wide straws that this should actually be possible.
