O.K this is the effect. Magician takes off his shoe and taps it, a crushed 'coke' can falls out. He taps it again and a whole full can falls out, which can be opend drunk etc.
Now I thought I saw this in the AOA series, but I looked through every book and can not see it. Did I read 'earth shoes' and dream this variation? I am sure I read this somewhere, I need help I am going crazy.

Is the direct link, you'll have to answer one question (should be easy, if you can't answer it you shouldn't come back here ;))

One tip though - it has a space.

Thanks guys that is the routine I remember. But where did I read it? I thought I read it in book 3 of the AOA series when my friend lent it to me about 2 years ago. But after buying the series myself I could not find it, but he is now doing street magic in Switzerland so I can't check. I remember the routine from memory, but I didn't read it in 'Pocket Power'. Does anyone know if different editions of the AOA series have some tricks removed? Like 'Pure Effect' by Derren Brown? This is driving me crazy.

Is this similar to the effect in AoA where a foot sized rock is pulled out of your shoe. I think its called earth shoe

Yeah I mentioned that in my first post.

"Did I read 'earth shoes' and dream this variation? I am sure I read this somewhere"

The link posted is the routine I remember, but where did I read it first time around?
