Can you figure out how this is done before the secret is revealed? There's no threads, magnets, blowing or electronics involved. Please don't leave any clues in the comments and share it with your friends - they won't be able to figure it out either. Enjoy!

Seeing as how you asked, yes I figured out what was going on pretty quickly. However like Rizzo, the type was the real question.

Same lol You should edit the clip so you don't expose it, this way people can submit there asnwers, who knows some one might have an ingenious new method after seeing it, then you can show the answer Smile

It has been more that twenty five years but I heard a story about a magician that would perform the animated dollar by gluing a cockroach to the bottom of the bill. So that was of course my first thought.

Roach was my answer too.
Who originally did the animated dollar with a roach anyway? hmmm

My first idea was a coackroach too, the second one was that you fixed the camera at 90° to the table, and were just tilting the table to make the card move Smile

Chad, I not sure that I ever heard a name associated with the roach animated bill. I was just to story told by a magic shop owner by the name of Chuck Windley of Magic and More in Norfolk, Va.

A Spanish magician, Mago Antón if I remember as I must, has worked a lot with insects to perform magic. He had a project to writing a book about that, but I think that never came out...

The reason this came about was that I saw a really lazy fly on the floor at the supermarket. I went to step on him but he didn't even fly away... just continued wandering. So I dropped a price tag on him and he just walked around and it moved.

I whipped out the iPhone and the rest was "magic"! Smile

Does this make anyone else thirsty for Coca Cola, or even Fanta? Weird... I'm not sure why.
