One of the most anticipated DVDs of the year has arrived!
This exciting 90-minute DVD features brand new, hard-hitting magic with soda cans, coins, playing cards, drinking straws, note pads, dollar bills, Tic Tac boxes, finger rings, Ziploc bags, post cards, card cases, rubber bands and even golf balls!
The Hardcore DVD comes complete with special props for 3 outrageous new effects including 'Babylon Band,' 'Entranced' and 'Border Crossing.'
Several of the amazing routines are completely impromptu and involve ordinary, borrowed objects!
Many of the routines involve shocking images with enough visual impact to rock audiences during both close-up and stand-up performances.
No two magicians have the same style or skills, so Jay developed MULTIPLE HANDLINGS for many of the devastating effects on the 'HARDCORE' DVD. That way, you are guaranteed to learn magic that is right for YOU!
Some of the effects included on this DVD:
Leave it to Jay to combine one of the world's most popular sports with something so ORDINARY as a post card to create a STARTLING close-up production. Jay structured the handling for maximum ease and practicality. Guaranteed to rock both close-up and stand-up performances.
A totally fresh approach to bending a borrowed coin, featuring an outrageous new visual that leaves the usual collection of magic bends in the DUST. Jay even teaches you step-by-step exactly how to make this fascinating new coin gimmick in just a few minutes with tools you'll find in any tool box.
A freely selected and signed card MELTS through a plastic baggie, with the deck AND even the hand holding the pack, SEALED inside the baggie! No gimmicks, no suspicious moves, no bad angles. Combine it with your ACR, card to wallet or Jay's 'Paperclipped' effect. Keep the unprepared baggie folded in the back pocket of your jeans and always be ready to end a close-up set in STYLE.
An off-the-hook effect with a borrowed dollar bill that ends with a truly SICK souvenir people just CAN'T get over. 'SPIRAL' includes a very fresh approach to corner switching you are destined to use with playing cards, business cards and more.
An inspired combination of a torn + restored card CASE with a devious 'time travel' effect. During the detailed explanation, Jay blows the dust off a little know false cut + teaches you Herb Zarrow's renowned false shuffle.
"HARDCORE is a startling, impressive, all-new collection that represents some of Jay's finest thinking to date. I love that nearly all these effects are short, visual, and powerful. 'Wrapture' -his bending coin effect- is a favorite, and I love the new filming style. HARDCORE is Jay at his best."–Joshua Jay
