Will I be able to make a bottle cap mysteriously appear ON the bottle as in this video of prohibition? Or is that the trick?

John, are you related to my ex-wife? Because you are busting my balls like you are, LOL!

John, the video is a demo and as demos go, you don't always get to see the entire effect. otherwise I might as well give it away. I'm sure if you do a search for Prohibition on this website you will find out that it's probably the best cap in bottle effect on the market today, but don't take my word for it.

BTW when you are in Orlando email me and I'll be sure to introduce you to my little friend. (my best Tony Montana impression)or we can hang out.

Just thought it was funny when the cap appeared. I don't pick on anyone in particular, just tricks and videos I see. I share my thoughts with other magicians as if the author wasn't there. But you are here so it seems as though I am busting you personally but no I'm not.

The handling of Prohibtion is absolutely brilliant. But make no mistake about it: This is not a truly impromtu anytime, anywhere effect.. Bars and restaurants don't give out bottle caps when they serve bottles of beer. It's illegal. Now of course there's ways around that. But the effect is not nearly as practical as it should be. I can think of very few times outside of a house party where I'd find myself having a truly off the cuff, impromtu moment to perform this effect. Which is really too bad. Because again, the handling is brilliant and looks amazing. Oh well, the search for the holy grail of bottle penetrations continues....

Illegal to give out beer caps? Why? Are they dangerous, or something?

Platt,
I disagree. It is true that they do not give out the beer cap with you order a beer but if you ask the bartender for a few beer caps I am 95% sure they will give you a hand full without any hassle. (I know---I done it on several occasions). In my experience it really didn’t matter if they matched perfectly given the environment. Prohibition is a great crowd pleaser.

Take Care!

Does anyone still performs this effect after the exposure of the masked magician?

By law they have to open your beer. I guess technically handing out the cap could give you the ability to close it. Yes, most bartenders will probably be happy to give you some caps. But unless you're literally sitting at the bar with the spectator, the impromtu "anytime, anywhere" nature of this effect gets thrown out the window. Remember, I'm a huge fan of Prohibition. Just look at my posts from when it was released. The handing is brilliantly simple and it looks amazing. I just unfortunately have found very few times I can perform this truly impromtu. Maybe it's just me, but from a practicality standpoint, I'd much prefer: "Done with your beer? Got a coin? Great. Watch this."

A lot of people at bars or restaurants do not know that is illegal for bartenders to give caps. Bring your own caps. You can even bring the brand that you need to match your own bottle. Go to the bathroom come back and say "hey take a look at these caps I got from the trask or from the bar. Bend one and give the other to cap the bottle.

I have perform this effect so many times in bars and restaurants and noone has never asked where did you got the caps. In fact if you have beer in your hands it is obvious that somewhere around you can find the caps. In fact in a bar they do not even ask you who are you ???

It will be different if you bring a glass bottle in a place where the rest of the people have plastic glasses. Then this trick will be out of of place.

Also prohibiton does not need to be performed with a bottle beer only. You can even use a plastic glass. Ask the spectator to put their hand on top of the glass to cover it and then do the penetration. With good missdirection they can cover the glass without even looking.

My two cents.

I use a coke bottle in my walk around. We have a Festival Foods and they have six packs of minature coke bottles I start with a cap in the bottle and one on top.Then I start talking about science in how you would have to be a magician to pass a solid through a solid. works great. I love Prohibition.

I find prohibition great with water bottles. I bought it to do in a restaurant bar where I was strolling and it just never worked out.Beer all over my hands not everyone had clear bottles ext.
Then doing a strolling gig at a fair I saw someone with an empty water bottle they just finished. I asked if I could use it. I told them I am going to try to get this cap (I had caps in my vest) inside their bottle. I put the cap showing them in the bottle.But I said I am going to make it even harder by doing it with the cap on. Dumped the cap out,screwed their lid on and did the trick.
Here is what's so great about it.
1 lots of people carry water bottles when going places.
2 Your hands only get a little wet with water not anything sticky
3 You hand them back their water bottle with the lid on for them to keep and try to figure out how the heck you got that in their.
Now I lost my **** to do the trick and was going to order another one till I saw Bullet: Coin in a Bottle. I debated after seeing and reading about this coin in bottle if I should get it or buy another **** for Prohibition.
I ended buying Bullet: coin in Bottle and after watching the explanation and seeing how it was done without getting too much into it just let me say I will be buying another **** for the prohibition trick.
Too me this is hands down the best cap in borrowed bottle, plastic or glass or whatever you want.
Great job Jeff
