I have seen Dan Harlan performing a trick where he completely vanishes a rubberband with short sleeve shirt by squeezing it!

I have seen this on a video catalog of International Magic.
Where can I learn such a trick?

Anyone?

On his video "Magic with Rubber Bands Vol I" he does an effect where he begins in Crazy Man's Handcuffs pose and proceeds to pull one band against the other, ball it up, and vanish it, so he's left with one. It's very good.

Nothing is difficult when you learn it and work on it.

That's not the vanish described in this thread, however. The vanish described above sounds like Dan's "Incredible Shrinking Band", which is on Dan Harlan: The Band Shark, a video put out by A-1 Multimedia (or is it A-1 Magicmedia now?).

I'm surprised that the catalog you saw it on didn't say where to find it--seems to defeat the purpose of a catalog to me.

I believe the trick Mr. Magician is talking about is on Harlan's Rubberband magic vol.2. I do this a lot. A lot of time I get better responses to this than Crazy Man's Handcuffs. People always beg to see it again. Too bad for them.

This is the effect I always use to follow "Crazy Man's Handcuffs." I tell them I will be breaking the golden rule of no teaching and while they are putting on the rubberbands I do the set up. It took a while to learn, but now it is a no look setup while talking them through putting on their bands. (I have no idea who showed me this and they (whoever they were) never told me where it came from .... but I have been forever thankful for it.) They take that walk down the garden path thinking they are going to learn a cool trick and then BAM they discover that some rules are not to be broken. All in fun of course and nobody leaves feeling bad. Learn this and use it.

Get "Magic with Rubber Bands" vol. 1 and you can't go wrong. The routine I use is Mark Fitzgerald's "Back Together," then do CMH, then I tell them how I did it by doing "Broken and Restored Rubberband" and then close it with the disappearing rubberband. All four effects get a good response.

I too like Dan's stuff. Andy is right about the Bandshark tape. That was my first exposure to Dan's material. And while I later bought his three tape series on rubber bands, I still go back to the A-1 tape, especially on a napkin tear trick that I use all the time. Smile

I think the napkin tear you're referring to is Dan's "Starcle", on a hunch? If so, I suspect that's on Vol. 2 of the A-1 tapes, on Dan's close-up magic.

Vol. 1, The Bandshark, featured all rubberbands, plus a bonus section with "Ring Around the Ropesy" (I think that's the name), Dan's method for a linking rings and rope routine, and "Tame Cards", Dan's way cool ungaffed "Wild Card").

Man, I know way too much of this crap ;o)

Yes this is called the shrinking rubberband. It is very easy to do ,however the only compalint I have is you must keep alot of bands on your wrist,but the effect is very visual..
This effect is found on Dans video
