The Signed Coin In Can - a problem & a solution

Postby Wayne Houchin » December 14th, 2011, 12:12 pm

Hello everyone & happy holidays!

I want to take a minute and address an issue that has been brought to my attention regarding Sinful - the signed coin in can. It seems that many soda manufacturers are changing the cans that they use and this is causing a problem with the finale of the routine. I have a few solutions.

It's important to understand that soda or beer cans will vary from region to region. A can of Sprite works well in Chico, California but NOT in Sacramento which is only 90 miles south. If you plan on using a quarter I recommend that you do a bit of research: purchase popular cans in your area and test them - find out which ones work best.

However, you can also do what I do and just use a nickel. I have performed this effect all over the world and I've found it much easier to use nickel sized coins.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Any other questions, comments or suggestions regarding Sinful or Counterfeit Hollingworth?

For those that are interested, I have a few signed copies of Sinful & Counterfeit Hollingworth available for the holidays:
