I just bought this via papal. One word... WOW. This is unbelievable, I nearly fell off my chair when I read the pdf. Jaxon my hat is off to you.
At this price folks don't miss this effect. I pride myself in a logical educated mind and would never have guessed the gimmick. anyone worried about making this please don't worry the pdf explains just how easy this is to make. I guarantee you will easily lay your hands on the necessary stuff at next to no cost to yourself.
Final thoughts are you will use this and kick yourself if you don't buy it at the price.
Regards, Doc

I got this also and it blew me away - the gimmick was truly a surprise as, after watching the video, I thought I had it figured....WRONG!!
Well done, Ron - a great illusion (and you don't even need to be a smoker to perform this)!

Just bought this too! Totally agree with <multiply>. Download the video FIRST and watch it around a dozen times - when you know the secret the demo loses a little impact, so take-in as much as you can!

Fantastic! Hats off (or on) to Ron!

I performed this tonight, and yes I know I only bought it yesterday but honestly you will be able to do this as soon as you make the gimick and how many tricks can that be said about? It went down fantasticaly and is so much fun to do.its one of those rare things that you watch yourself do in a mirror and you cant stop smiling. So once again guys do yourself and magic a favour and buy this thing and get out there performing it.

Money well spent!!! I was really pleased with my purchase, Ron. Top notch stuff here. The gimmick took no time to create, and I am having a blast performing this effect. At 10 dollars, I believe I got my moneys worth. Thanks for putting this out there!!

I'm so glad this is getting such good feed back.

After you've performed it for a while. I'd love to see videos of you performing it. It would be great to put on my site. So people can see how different people present it. I'm sure there is a wide variety of facial expressions and other presentation aspects.

There's something I think needs to be said and I'm saying it here on the public board because it doesn't just apply to this trick.

Don't trade PDF files for other tricks. This trick is only $10 and most PDF instructions don't cost that much anyway. I've had a couple people who have this trick tell me that they've had Emails asking to trade this trick for otehr PDF's or E-books. If someone can't afford $10 then I don't think magic is something they should be to heavily into. If anyone wants this trick but don't use paypal or are in a country that doesn't. Email me and maybe we can work something about. (Please don't take this as in invitation to trade this trick for others though).

Thanks again everyone!

I've had a few people ask what I meant when I said that this trick is part of a longer act. So I figured I'd share it here. The other tricks in the act aren't mine so I'll just name them.

I start out by performing Andy Leviss's "A sticky situation. This is a very nice trick with a stick of chewing gum. After, while rather, I'm performing this trick I explain that I'm trying to quit smoking.

I explain that I've tried all kinds of "Stop Smoking aids". For example:

Here I perform Fearsons floating cigarette with the tag line, "See, you use a light cigarette".
That never really helps you quite. It actually makes you want to smoke more. So I found a way that's guarenteed to make you quit.

Here I perform Outsmokin.

At the end I say something along the lines of:
If all else fails, just do this!"

Then I do a very clean cigarette up the nose that leaves your hands empty.

A lot of visual magic and fun lines in this routine.

Just thought I'd share that for those who are interested.

Ron:

I can't view the demo with QT 6.5 . Any ideas?

Also, Peter's performance doesn't seem available either. MagicVideoDepot.com appears to be down or gone.

Would love to see the demo.

I open mine with Windows media player with no problem. Hmm. I'm not sure what to do.

I do have a very old and very low quality video of it. I made this about 5 years ago mainly just to show it to some friends online.

It's a .ram file so you'll need real player. Don't hold the quality of the video against me but it does show the effect.
(Notice that in this video I light the cigarette at the end. I only did this to show that it can be handed out when you perform. You don't have to light it).

Click here to try that video.

Oh and by the way. The video of Peter perform the effect is on the add page for outsmokin now. Click here to find that.

Let me know if you're able to see either one of them. I'd love to read your reaction.

The first link is for a Real Media file. It works just fine for me. The second link is for a Windows Media player file, which also works fine. You may wish to try downloading the latest versions of this software for the files to work properly.

If you don't like RealOne, you can download a program called RealAlternative, a smaller program that uses virtually no memory at all.

For Windows Media:

For RealAlternative:

Hope this helps.

Hey Ron, I started this thread for you again by just asking where to get the materials for your effect. I have the non PDF version. Now look at all the responses and sales. You never did tell me what type of hat you are wearing. I hope Outsmokin continues to do well for you. By the way it is a great effect!

Ron:

On your website, the file extension is .avi.

In your last post, it's a .ram file, which I <was> able to see with jetAudio, a Real Media player.

I like the routine and can see why it would be so cool as a part of a longer routine. Thanks for posting it.

Nice going Ron!
Outsmokin deserves it's own demo video, the effect is awesome.

Don't doubt how big impact this effect will do!
It's easy to put together, (took me about 20min).
And really easy to perform, (no difficult sleights what so ever),
so you can consentrate fully on your performance.

I'v performed this behind the bar as a starter of my "quit smoking" routine (outsmokin' - floating cig. to vanish it with a TT).

Great work Ron!!

-e-
...As long as i`m not a world-champion at anything, the great reactions of doin` magic will do just fine.....
