I know this is an old topic, but I just wanted to reiterate the general purpose of the thread, which is some cans don't work, EXPERIMENT PEOPLE. Had a very near public fopaux with a diet pepsi can. Had I not at the last minute decided to discreetly test the effect with this particular can in an out of the way place at the gathering I was at, it would have been bad bad news.

Again, if you had used a nickel, it would have never ever been an issue.ANY CAN ANY TIME. The can should never be an issue again for anyone unless you insist on using a quarter. With this can works and this one doesn't posts, why not use the nickel and you can do it with any can any time ? Did you read my posts before getting ready to do this ? Take care:)

Actually I hadn't read the posts, I only found them after I discovered the potential problem, and did a search to see if it was a common one. Yay for doing a search? Yay? Anyone? Echo? Smile

I'm a big fan of this effect. (A little tip... try using A&W Root Beer Cans) they do the job well. Where might I find Biro's "Kicker" ending?

I like using a quarter, the majority of the time the spectator believes that the quarter is too big to fit into the hole eliminating the idea that the coin could have been somehow preloaded into the can.

I don't use my own can, I borrow someones can when they buy a can of soda. I usually buy one too. I say, check this out, I learned how to do this neat little move. Can I use your soda ? I tell them to check it and make sure it is a normal can(it just came out of the machine or their refrigerator or cooler). They see it "slam" into the can and I finish the routine. I take a glass and pour the contents out into a cup or glass and shake the can. I make sure not to open the lip all the way, only about a third of the way and leave it there.It makes them open it more and more until they are able to get the nickel out of the can. I hand them the can and start drinking the cola and hand them my unopened soda to drink. Sometimes I will hand them the money and say can you get me a coke or whatever and then I say pick one of these I want to show you something. They are blown away.

I guess if I were to bring a can of soda into a room and say, watch this and did the effect, I would have some concern of spectator thinking a preload was possible. When I perform it, I have them get the can out of machine or any cooler. It makes it nice too because whatever brand they come back with I can do the effect without issue or concern.

GOOD NEWS! I just saw a commercial last night for Coors Light about how they now have a wider mouth. Here's an excerpt from an article because I can't find the commercial online:

Quote:
In addition to these innovations, Coors Light is highlighting three of its most popular packaging enhancements – the Coors Light Plastic Bottle Cooler Box, the industry’s first ice-ready bottle package, and the Frost Brew Liner with the Wide Mouth Can. The Wide Mouth Can ensures a smoother drinking experience from Coors Light and Coors cans.


This might be good for us. Maybe others will follow. Isn't that what happened with soda cans? I think Mt. Dew was the first to have a wide mouth way back in the 90s, and now it's hard to find soda cans that don't.

I'm a little late to the party here, but I've been doing this trick for about nine months now and absolutely love it. I prefer using a quarter and have trained myself to know what cans to look for and avoid. Since I'm not announcing the trick when I ask for a soda I have an easy out if necessary. I shoot for diet coke but have done it with diet pepsi without many problems.
But I have to say that the nickle is a great idea. I will keep it in mind and work it in to the routine depending on the can. I can't see why it wouldn't be just as impressive.

Terrick...thank goodness for the wider mouth comment...I was laughing through this whole thread. Its magic..not metaphysics...just a few possibilities...the coin was never in the can...the coin was always in the can...or you sneak the coin into the can. Anyone materializing coins in cans? To get the coin in the can...you must get the coin in the can! If the mouth is not wide enough...getting the coin in the can could be a bit tricky! Always nickels..dimes..and even a shaved penny in a pinch! Smile
