Hi Chichi,

I hear what you're saying now...for a straight up strolling gig it would be a challenge to come up with the trick the second time and offer an explanation for it. I'm sure some sort of patter could be devised to make it work, and you could pre-set more than one prop, but I do hear what you're saying.

Cheers

Sorry I should have been more clear from the get go. It was late and I was not thinking clear. Had I kept it short and sweet it would have saved us a lot of time.

Use your imagination chichi, it really shouldn't be that hard to come up with an idea of how to use it in a show. I agree walk around could and would pose some issues but none that couldn't be overcome. As far as using it in a paying gig, are you telling me you couldn't find a way to work it in, you don't need to do it for everyone. Use it like Bottle Twister, have the bartender in on it and supply the crushed can.
Last weekend I had someone in the audience tell me he heard of three effects I performed and wanted to see them. I never said no but I most certainly didn't perform them instead I went thru my set and the fellow came up to me after the show and stated how awesome he thought it was. Never mentioning the original effects, probably forgotten because of what he did see himself.

You are awsome JFK I am proud of you. Just like I stated before. I wouldnt trust a bar tender with my effects. If it works for you that is fine. I was just stating my opinion. The way you are reacting you would think that I was personally attacking one of your family members. Calm down it will be okay.

P.S. I have no imagination. I lost that years ago.

The original question had to do with "sitting time". Given the amazingly inexpensive nature of the props in this effect, there can be no better method of finding out than experimenting. Why trust other people's guesses when you can find out for yourself very easily?

Yes that's what I tried to do. Lane asked so I tried to help and give advice for his original question. I didn't guessed John

Sorry Las. I was trying to answer Lane directly. I see that your answer is the same as mine, but more helpful.

Think I'll go uncrush a can now.

I try, but I wouldn't use the word "Awesome" to describe me.
