Phase

Magic download (video) by Josh Janousky ($10.00)

A borrowed credit card is pushed through a borrowed bill. Simple, elegant, and impossible. That's "Phase" in a nutshell. With just one sleight-of-hand maneuver, the rest of the routine is slow and gorgeous, and it's a lovely piece of magic to have in your arsenal.

Florida magician Josh Janousky takes you through the entire routine step by step, including self-working alternatives, so that you can perform Phase within minutes of watching.

Works with any banknote (including plastic bills). Does require the simple construction of a small gimmick. Easy to learn and easy to perform.

Running time: 17 minutes, 25 seconds

Ridiculously BRILLIANT method to an age-old plot! I'm not sure that mentioning "everything can be borrowed" even matters because when you show both sides of the bill DURING the penetration; lay peoples' minds are already fried to a point of automatically eliminating the thought of the objects being gimmicked. You show a SINGLE bill (any currency, any denomination) and just fold it in half and jam a legit (borrowed or not) credit card right through the crease! The spectator can even grab the credit card as it penetrates and pull it through themselves, where they're left holding the most "heated" object in their own hands!!! You are 100% able to hand the bill out for examination, but the few times I've performed it (for close friends who know I'm shady as hell and using some sort of "method"); I've just dropped the bill on the table where it remains completely untouched by their hands as they curiously examine the credit card they saw slice right through it. I'm sure at some point, someone will want to give the bill a close look...at which time I'll just stand back and smile! Mainly, because I CAN!!!!

Great little quick-hit that you'll be sure to keep in you at ALL times!

 

Official review from Genii Magazine

From the April 2016 Genii magazine. Reviewed byJoe M. Turner

While some of his earlier work has been published in The Linking Ring, this video download is Josh’s first marketed item. The effect is simple: a borrowed credit card appears to penetrate a (potentially borrowed) banknote. It’s fast, clean, and mystifying, but yes, you will need to secretly introduce a certain something. You’ll learn how to make it and how to handle it in this 17-minute video. Josh’s preference is simply to use your own bill and save the trouble of loading and stealing gimmicks, but it is possible to go with an all-borrowed approach, or to switch in your own bill secretly. As for the penetration, the initial melt-through moment is impressive. If you ever broke a “Misled” gimmick, you’ll appreciate the practicality and durability of this approach. I’ll be putting this in my wallet.
