Hi there,

I am really hoping someone can help me with this one. I am looking to construct or purchase if possible a cigarette case/packet that when the hand is waved over the box (alot like a standard colour change) the brand of the cigarette packet changes.
Now I know you can construct this with a standard flap which is what I plan on doing. However I got the idea to be able to change the cigarette packet to display maybe 4/5 different cigarette brands. I got this idea from an effect called "Smokers Paradise" by Val Evans I found in "The Interactive Jinx". Unfortunately the details on how to instruct this gimmick and perform the necessary changes were very vague and not detailed. Does any one out there know of any marketed effects that achieve a colour changing cigarette case type of an illusion....or even any anywhere that has a similar routine and how to make up the case yourself?

Also I was wondering if anyone knows where I can buy those cigarette shooter gimmicks where you place a cigarette into it and when you click the button the spring shoots the cigarette out of the packet?

Thanks,

Rob

There was a Spanish dealer that sold these - I only saw them once (about 5 years ago) and would love to get one (as I'm still a smoker)!

The transformation was incredibly fast - and both sides of the packet were clearly shown before and after the change.

Finding any kind of cigarette tricks these days is going to be problematic.

The "jumping cigarette" gaffs are made in China and sold on joke shop websites.
Nothing is truer than the incomprehensible, because the sum total of our knowledge consists of the fact that we know nothing. Our reality is an illusion. Thus illusion is reality-Punx
