The Ad Copy

The magician asks YOU to select a card.
YOU rip it into four equal pieces.
YOU give three back and keep one yourself.
After a squeeze, the magician's three pieces vanish - Gone.
In their own wallet, there are the three pieces.
No longer torn, restored with one-quarter missing.
The quarter they hold matches the Partially RESTORED card!

This is a torn and restored card effect that changes direction, cutting loose of all expectation and rationality. CONNECTED has been Peter's closing effect in his close-up routine for years and now it is available to you.

This is not your typical card trick - What you receive is a super in-depth tutorial lasting over one hour that'll teach you everything you need to make this amazing routine your own.

The Review

Now. When I first heard of this effect, I was a little concerned that a stooge might be needed. However I was very glad to find that the effect can be done with anyone who has a wallet. If they donít have a wallet, you lose nothing Peter covers this on the DVD.

Ok now this may sound impossible, but Peter has made this possible, Peter has done this effect for quite a few years and also it has been released in PDF format. Now with the DVD you canít go wrong.

The clever use of another effect will allow you perform this killer effect and allow you a great closer to your performance.

In truth the effect is simple, but with the teachings from Peter and a little input from Owen you are taught EVERYTHING needed.

From the set-up to the end all is covers and nothing is held back. The effect has been broken down into stages and each one is covered very well.

Now the set-up is very easy and with just a basic force the effect can be done.

The DVD has been produced perfectly with good sound and visual elements and the live performances do help in understanding what the effect is about.

This is a short review, but If I told you too much, I might give away the secrets.

How bold is the method?

I wouldn't consider the method bold because there's not a lot of heat involved.

The method I feel is a very elegant one and is probably the best solution that one can get to for a card to spectator's wallet.

I've bought this DVD and while I've yet to put it into practice I think that this one's a winner. I'll certainly be using this in the future.

As usual with the guys over at BBM, this dvd is wonderfully produced, the instructions are very clear and comprehensive, and the effect is killer.

I really don't consider the method bold because it's so well covered. There's no heat on you when you do the dirty work.

I read the PDF and loved the effect. Although, when you read it, it might seem bolder than it is. But seeing it performed really shows how well thought out and motivated the routine is.

Great work from Peter Harrison and Big Blind Media.
