Hey guys, just thought I would post a demonstration video of Skullkracker that I made for those who are wondering what the effect looks like. I performed the trick with a check to bill switch that can be easily used at any coffee shop, gas station etc.

"Do you take a check?"
"No?"
"OK, no problem..." Smile

Great effect. Great DVD. Nice work Bob.

Woa that was pretty cool. I see in the information of Skullcracker there are 4 different types of visual changes, would you mind makigna video and posting the other 3? I would love to see them.

Don't make them. This looks like a newbie fishing for information or methods to me. Sorry if you're not fishing, but I think that one video of the hot new product is enough.

The handlings have to do with how clean you want to start and end with. The amature video link above shows the pre-set method with the main move/visual change.

However Bob Sheets teaches more that can be done to establish your clean at the beginning and end. Bob also shows you several methods for the visual change (what the person above was referring to), as well as several different routines for the effect, including a $20 bill split into two $10's.

This is a must have DVD and an effect you will always perform (or at least should perform).

I'm not fishing for methods. I just want to see if it's something I can use in the real world. Don't jump to conclusions sir.

There is a demo clip in http://www.Themagicwarehouse.com, just go to the Hot Items page.
Btw, does this method allow us to show both hands empty after the bill is given to the spec? Btw this is not fishing, I just want to compare it with TT method that I use.

Thanks and as tdowell pointed out, the method I used was the pre-set method which is probably the easiest method to perform. However, as you guys are aware, there are several methods presented on the DVD to choose from. Again, great effect!

Again, as always, you have to look at it from the laymen's perspective. When you perform this for someone on the street and they aren't expecting what you're about to do, they're not going to know how it was done because they wouldn't be actively looking for the method.

Of course.. if you break the cardinal rule and show them again, then well..

This looks a lot like the Juan Hundred change with a folded bill. I ordered the dvd anyways, but I'm hoping not to just have a recap of Juan with a palming off or something at the end.
How many Magicians does it take to advertise a trick? Three.. One to steal the trick. One to steal HIS trick. And one to write a good review.

I showed the video to a layperson and she guessed the method in 2 seconds.

Demo video doesn't really do it justice, if you see it in person it would be a lot better. I was doing it at the mall today, everyone stunned.

Don't judge this effect by what someone sees on a video (a tight frame). When performed in the real world, spectators shouldn't have a clue, partly because of required eye movement. You might want to check out this thread for a good discussion of the effect.
