Magicfish, I like very much John Mendoza's take on Vernon's routine. He eliminated the ball going from hand to hand to be vanished and the false explanation used by Vernon. In his DVDs "My best" the Vernon routine is on DVD 2 and also in that DVD there is another very quick routine, his Co...

Al Posted a 4FX video at TMC for few hours and removed it (maybe because of this project). I was able to watch it. It is impromptu, you can use the paper napkin at your restaurant, not difficult sleight of hands and like Richard says it fools you. I think everybody would like to do it.
