Does anyone remember John Scarne on a Schaefer Beer commercial in the early 70's (in the new york area)? I saw it as a kid a couple times and it inspired me to study sleight of hand (I was doing simple apparatus tricks at the time).
He did rub-a-dub-dub, a two cards with beer glass transposition, and a beautiful color change. What I've wanted to know all these years is what method he used for the color change. Unfortunately, I never got to see the commercial enough times to pin it down. As I remember it, he showed his hand empty before placing it directly over the face up card (precluding a side steal). He rubbed the hand back and forth a bit and then off the deck to the right to reveal the color change. He then showed the hand empty. Maybe it was a pass, though I didn't see it and there was no obvious right hand support for it. My only guess at the time was that the top card somehow got wrapped around to the back of the deck or something. Or maybe my memory of it was wrong.
Does anyone remember seeing it and know?
