Shawn, sounds awesome but the caps on most water bottles are plastic, can you still get it into the bottle?

Sorry if I mislead anyone. I don't put the water bottles cap in the bottle I use it only to put back on the empty bottle. I carry around with me about 12 metal beer bottle an coke bottle caps. The great thing is you don't have to carry a bottle around.Tons of people drink bottled water anyway at events so you are ready to go.
I sometimes use this as a puzzle. I will do the cork in the thumb crotch trick and see if they can do it. A fun little trick. Then I will say lets try this.Can you get this bottle cap in your empty water bottle. I hand them a flat cap. Lots of guys will be like yea bend it and put it in.That's perfect because now you are ready.Then you tell them great now the hard part .I will get it in with the cap on.Dump the cap out screw their water bottle lid on and do the trick.Hand them back the bottle and hope they didn't just watch Secrets reveled witch most people I've talked to haven't.

Jeff,love the key in bottle idea.I bet you have a ton of ideas for this.
Prohibition is in my top 5 tricks for strolling

Shawn, Charlie has another version that fryed me, even after I knew about Prohibition. One day I've got to get him to put it on tape because you won't believe it!

I've been asked by those that purchased the Prohibition DVD if The Coin Accomplice manuscript could be purchased seperately, and the answer is yes! Simply go to the Digital Downloads section of my website aqnd it is available for download these.

Thanks

Let them come magicman4646, Charlie and I stand behind Prohibition as the only cap in bottle effect where you can actually walk up to someone drinking a beer and penetrate their bottle with a cap, and then walk away. It requires no setup before hand to their bottle and can be instantly repeated.

It is the best cap in bottle routine for the real worker, hands down. But don't take my word on it, just do a search.

Thanks,
Jeff Pierce Magic

P.S. Prohibition is available on DVD or as a Digital Download.

I have to agree Jeff. I wonder how CAPTURE by Justin Miller will compare to Prohibition?

No doubt prohibition has a lot of GREAT qualities being a no set up cap in bottle...

I have performed prohibition many times and it's the one effect people talk about for months and months after, it really is that good! I always have the cap signed by the spec, I even let them hold their 'signed cap' while I cap the bottle with another cap. Everything looks exactly as it should and then the impossible happens! It's a wonderful effect that looks like real magic!

Jon, if you think about it, you can imediately repeat Prohibition again and be left completely clean. This is an idea that was given to us by two people at the same time. One is The Godfather Vinny Marini and the other is friend Wallace Murphy.

You are right Peter, Prohibition is very magical and logical to your spectators. I've seen guys do it in their hands, in the spectators hands, on the couch, on their leg, on any object that has a little give, it just looks like magic.

Gary:

Can you re-state this? Maybe I'm not understanding your wording because what you're describing is not possible.

If you have the dvd everything is explained including how to end completely clean, maybe have a look at the dvd again in case you missed something!

Steve H is right! what you appear to be saying is not possible!

Do you mean the hand that was holding the cap after it penetrated?

Just repeat the effect in the mirror until you like how it looks. This part is up to you. You have to practice! Charlie has done it hundreds and hundreds of times. You will succeed with more practice and mirror time, nanaswan.

Nanaswan, go back and watch the DVD again and pay close attention to the section right after the penetration. What most people fail to do is follow Charlies lead using the misdirection of the bottle to help you clean up. Watch it again and you will get it. Keep trying, it's worth it.
